Last week, we trolled the high-rent district of Craigslist's real estate listings. This week, a new quest: can Curbed find a place to call home below 96th Street in Manhattan for $500 a month? Yes! We hit paydirt on the Upper East Side, where $500 gets a "small studio with sher bath and no kitchen." But we might be willing to fork over an extra $50 to "share the big room" with Joe Cooper, a 19-year-old theater major who's got the kind of moxie we look for in a roommate:
The kitchen is small, but you can work with itWhat a coincidence! We just deleted our Friendster account!
The bathroom is a good size. I can't complain.
I am single, Hana is not... hmmm... we're both on Friendster.com
