Culture on the Cheap

The real estate market may very well be “regulating”Â itself. That’s not what I am observing rent-wise. I say this as someone who had a rather obnoxious and very ILLEGAL rider on my (rent-stabilized) lease. I tossed it into the trash, signed the lease and we cut the check. Once the check is deposited it is a legal contract. IfÂ “refused” the matter will clog the bowels ofÂ Housing Court. FOR A LONG TIME.
What bothers me more is Joann Kims, ‘ situation. It is typical:
I am being kicked out of my apartment Feb 1st (long story, none of which is my doing). I need a roommate or an apartment by Feb 1st. Any leads would be appreciated. My budget is max $1100. I am clean, especially in the kitchen. I detest clutter. I have a dog. I tend to be reclusive when home. I have dinner get gatherings every so often. Apt must be in Greenpoint.
Miss Kim has done a lot for this community. She was and is the brains behind the Greenpoint Food Market. Something I and many others have enjoyed. If you wish to have Joann as a roomie contact me at missheather (at) thatgreenpointblog (dot) com. I’ll gladly forward your email.
