hey there. so in april my lease is up on my les 1br, and the fuckers are jacking the rent by $300, so i need to move. ideally i would stay in the same hood, still be able to live alone, but also not have to sign a year lease -- maybe a six-month sublet or something. i could deal w/ having a roommate again if the place was big enough (tho i really really really don't want to) and i could also live in bk again if it were williamsburg, dumbo, fort greene/clinton hill/bedstuy. price range is $1400 and lower, though i could swing $1800 if i really really really loved the spot. does anyone happen to know someone or have suggestions? many thx.

jon that place would be fine for 1 person! or even a happy couple. but did you mean april or march? our shit's done end of feb, right?

jamz, it's a kitchen, bathroom, and 2 bedrooms. one bedroom is pretty decently sized (jon fits a double bed, loveseat, desk, dresser, bookshelf, etc. with enough room to have a v. furry rug in the middle). the other bedroom is is smaller - not enough room for the loveseat or rug (basically 3/4 the width or so as the other room?). for one person, though, you could easily be happy making one room bedroom and the other a living room or office. the kitchen has next to 0 counter space. it's not a bad place, and the location is good if you like to drink at daddy's, drop off laundry a block away, etc. the upstairs neighbors like to walk around in high heels at all hours. the landlady doesn't like leases, so you could do month to month and just give her notice a month before you leave.

tehresa (tehresa), Thursday, 15 February 2007 23:45 (fourteen years ago) link

that sounds v promising. i feel slightly weird moving back to the hood (i lived a couple blocks from there for a while and my ex still lives nearby) but i will have to consider that. is it available march or april?

Jams Murphy (ystrickler), Friday, 16 February 2007 14:59 (fourteen years ago) link

oops march, but they haven't showed it. meanwhile, tza, we need to clean

jw (ex machina), Friday, 16 February 2007 15:10 (fourteen years ago) link

That place is totally comfortable for one person. And you have a nice secluded walkway. PLUS, IT"S NORTHCASTLE!

Carey (Carey), Friday, 16 February 2007 15:14 (fourteen years ago) link

aren't there pics of the apt on the board somewhere.

Carey (Carey), Friday, 16 February 2007 15:14 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah, probs with all of us in it!

yeah the walkway is pretty esp in summer when the peach trees are fruitful!

there is a little yard full of rocks and car parts, we never did anything there.

tehresa (tehresa), Friday, 16 February 2007 23:51 (fourteen years ago) link

Yes. I move TOMORROW.

ooh where is this?

tehresa (tehresa), Saturday, 17 February 2007 16:47 (fourteen years ago) link

guys this looks like fun!

laurel and i are trying to figure out the logistics of wearing pointy/pretty/heeled shoes in the snow. help!

there is a bus that stops like in front of my house and right by bar but requires going way around into queens and that is just silly. another bus is more direct but has longer walks to get to and from.

how do we shot wearing fun shoes without sinking into snow banks? don't say bring other shoes in purse because a purse that big inhibits dancing.

tehresa (tehresa), Saturday, 17 February 2007 17:37 (fourteen years ago) link

No no, change of shoes is an option. Purse is large and can contain multitudes.

Laurel (Laurel), Saturday, 17 February 2007 17:40 (fourteen years ago) link

but srsly it is hard to dance with large purse!

tehresa (tehresa), Saturday, 17 February 2007 17:41 (fourteen years ago) link

Stash in DJ booth or similar. Tricks of the trade.

Laurel (Laurel), Saturday, 17 February 2007 17:46 (fourteen years ago) link

put shoes in (small, 'nice') plastic or collapsable bag that can go in coat pocket later! if you can check your coat and boots, even better

impermanent rrrobyn (rrrobyn), Saturday, 17 February 2007 17:46 (fourteen years ago) link

now i am excited! apparently this place has free hot dogs or veggie dogs and also skeeball!

tehresa (tehresa), Saturday, 17 February 2007 17:54 (fourteen years ago) link

skeeball without prizes = no cred

jw (ex machina), Saturday, 17 February 2007 17:57 (fourteen years ago) link

they have tuesday night tournaments to win $30 bar tab?

tehresa (tehresa), Saturday, 17 February 2007 18:01 (fourteen years ago) link

!!!!!!

jw (ex machina), Saturday, 17 February 2007 18:03 (fourteen years ago) link

that beats stuffed animalz, amirite?
ok maybe not...

tehresa (tehresa), Saturday, 17 February 2007 18:04 (fourteen years ago) link

the b43 shouldn't be that bad. also, if you're feeling flush then it's only $5-6 in a car.

Lauren (lauren), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:36 (fourteen years ago) link

p.s. - drunken skeeball is totally fun until you get caught walking around the side of the machine and dropping the ball into the high scoring basket.

Lauren (lauren), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:38 (fourteen years ago) link

there is a skeeball machine in w'burg?

Carey (Carey), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:41 (fourteen years ago) link

there is apparently a bar on grand that has skeeball and gives you a free beer if you get above a certain score...my roomate has been.

drinking skeeball = most fun!! much better than pinball, erotic photo hunt, or even big buck hunter.

bell labs (bell_labs), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:45 (fourteen years ago) link

also there's lulu's in greenpoint...i dont know which one everyone is talking about.

bell labs (bell_labs), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Non-erotic photo hunt is pretty much awesome, though, and not even slightly awkward with total strangers at bar. Good reason to rope in cute attendees.

(Tonight is at Lulu's.)

Laurel (Laurel), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:46 (fourteen years ago) link

there is apparently a bar on grand that has skeeball and gives you a free beer if you get above a certain score...my roomate has been.

yeah it's near my house but i still haven't been.

Tyrone Slothrop (Tyrone Slothrop), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:47 (fourteen years ago) link

lulu's also has free po'boys but i don't think it's every night?

bell labs (bell_labs), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:52 (fourteen years ago) link

i probably spent about a grand over the years on erotic photo hunt at mars bar.

Lauren (lauren), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:54 (fourteen years ago) link

anyway, carey - the bar on the corner of franklin and gpt has a skeeball machine. it used to be called lulu's but now it's something else. come tonight! i haven't see you in AGES and should buy you a drink.

Lauren (lauren), Saturday, 17 February 2007 21:56 (fourteen years ago) link

i talked to andrew a little while ago and gave him details. he will be there!

tehresa (tehresa), Sunday, 18 February 2007 00:03 (fourteen years ago) link

if i were going to go out and if i were in nyc, i wld do this with you guys. wld even wear impractical shoes. have fun!

bell labs (bell_labs), Sunday, 18 February 2007 02:14 (fourteen years ago) link

lindsay jon just called me. he wants to know if you are going!
it would be awesome if dan selzer went cause i only met him once but he was djing so there was not actual interaction other than me being creepy and intro-ing!

tehresa (tehresa), Sunday, 18 February 2007 02:15 (fourteen years ago) link

i think i'll go! what time? my roomate may come as well, as she likes 2 skeeball...

i need a showerrr

bell labs (bell_labs), Sunday, 18 February 2007 02:18 (fourteen years ago) link

i just got up from nap and need to primp/wake up. jon is showering and returning uhaul and meeting me here i think. not sure when that will be...

tehresa (tehresa), Sunday, 18 February 2007 02:19 (fourteen years ago) link

hey guys can we have a skeeball tourney?

bell labs (bell_labs), Sunday, 18 February 2007 02:23 (fourteen years ago) link

that might interfere with the dancing!

tehresa (tehresa), Sunday, 18 February 2007 02:49 (fourteen years ago) link

skeeball > dancing

tehresa (tehresa), Sunday, 18 February 2007 03:15 (fourteen years ago) link

No prob re skeeball. If the dance floor/vibe is any good at all, you can come find me and let me know who wins.

Laurel (Laurel), Sunday, 18 February 2007 03:22 (fourteen years ago) link

wow the salt stains on my jeans are really killing my look.
ok, it's not really a look. i just have lots of boobage and will wear heels and probably freeze.

tehresa (tehresa), Sunday, 18 February 2007 03:25 (fourteen years ago) link

i am into both skeeball & dancing!!!
not so much into wearing impractical shoes on the ice though due to CLUMSY :(

bell labs (bell_labs), Sunday, 18 February 2007 03:28 (fourteen years ago) link

i bring tennis shoes in purse i think

tehresa (tehresa), Sunday, 18 February 2007 03:29 (fourteen years ago) link
