How do you lure a roommate to the Southeast Bronx? With absurdist neighborhood comparisons! From Craigslist:
Located in what's lately being touted as the "New Williamsburg" area of the south east Bronx, you are one train stop out of Manhattan on the green line... This antique district is very reminiscent of Tribeca as many artists inhabit the area. If you are into great ethnic foods whether it be mexican or dominican beans and rice with roast pork, then this is the place to be!!And hey, the porn shops offer a charming little taste of the West Village!!
