Looking for a kick in the ass to buy a place? Peruse this eerie tale of a Village resident who's rented the same one-bedroom walkup for 25 years:
My place has been the boon and bane of my life. Its low rent, still in the mid-three digits, has allowed me to maintain a certain bohemian lifestyle, to be a writer and not worry excessively about finances. But it has also provided me with little incentive to leave or even earn much of a paycheck.Victimization?a fresh, new reason to hate rent regulation!
