Live/Work

If any doubts remain about the kind of building, the kind of neighborhood I call home, these two disparate and accurate Craig's List posts ought to clear things up:
$1000 / 3br - LOFT APARTMENTS AT 345 ELDERT STREET

WARNING TO ALL THOSE LOOKING AT LOFT APARTMENTS AT 345 ELDERT STREET!! THERE HAVE BEEN A STRING OF BREAK INS AT THIS BUILDING. THE LANDLORDS HAVE DONE NOTHING TO RECONCILE SAFETY CONCERNS OF THE TENNANTS!!! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO LIVE OFF THE HALSEY STOP YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! 345 ELDERT STREET HAS HORRIBLE LANDLORDS UNWILLING TO FIX BROKEN SECURITY CAMERAS THAT ARE ALREADY IN PLACE. WARNING!!!

$325 - Holy Artistic Loft Spaces Batman, thats Cheap! Holla!

$325 to live in NYC. incredible. but lets get this out of the way right now: its a small bedroom with low ceilings. so if you are taller than 6 ft or larger than a refridgerator, then forget it, you'll hit your head on the rafters and wont get through the door. seriously. here we go.

the bedroom can confortably fit a twin bed, small dresser, small desk, hanging rack and side table, or a double bed / futon, desk, rack and dresser. you got a book nook and ceiling shelves. you got natural light and pipes to knock your head on. it's a bit of a cramped situation, but the loft overall, is the shit. we got 13 ft. ceilings, a split level (you live on the top floor) with cozy corner/storage facility, projector for wall-screenings, kitchen / living space, wireless internet, bath, art onna walls, etc etc.

we are a collective of three: intellectuals / writers / activists / musicians / filmmakers / performers / raggedy anarchists / poets / self-started businesspeople / NYC tour guides / West Coasters / Pennsylvanians / Native Brooklynites (represent!) / great cooks / lactose intolerants / cheese maniacs / (almost) cover the total spectrum of sexual identity / well-read / outspoken / coffee addicts / human beings. plus we have two cats: a bitey cat called Ignition and a playful kitten called Juggernaut. And lots of toliet paper.

The Loft is in a large reconverted knitting factory thats way the christ out in Bushwick. 1.5 blocks from the Halsey St. L train (27 minutes from Union Sq), 6 long blocks from the Halsey St J & Z trains (20 minutes from the financial district) (but honestly, does the Z even exist?!?) with laundry on the floor, a sometimes-working frieght elevator, a fuckins enormous roof with full distant view of the isle of Mannahatta. the neighborhood is a little desolate, but we have our share of Latino arroz con pollo places, bodegas, hair salons & 99cent stores. supermarket close by. short walk to bustling Ridgewood, QNS. also, NYC's largest cemetary (Evergreen) is 4 short blocks away. great to bust into late at night and read poetry or get goofy on dead-breath-air. Remind me to introduce you to the Captain of Evergreen. He's great. bike riders a biiiig plus, move in aug 1st.

artistic types only pleeze. thankee. rockon.

It's "Carnagie Magnmt". They are one of the late great slumlords around Bushwick. I lived in this building in 2000-2002, the first 2 years it was open. They kept my security, and tried to throw my bed out while i was moving. most of the people (at that time) weren't even paying rent b/c it was a totally illegal situtation. No fire exit, etc.
