The Catch

New, 10 comments

When a Craigslist roommate ad begins with, "Many of you who read this ad are going to find it very offensive," you know you're in for a good one. Other excerpts include, "Here is the catch...of course there is a catch," and, "yes...that would be the slightly crazy part." So what's the deal? Ladies, you're invited to pay this gent $300/month for a bedroom in his East Village apartment, but let's just say that even with an en-suite bathroom, don't count on much privacy. UPDATE: Our man was asking just $130/month last year. Clearly his problem is not understanding the rental market! [Craigslist]
