In 2011, a New York City newbie signed a lease on a Bushwick doctor's office-turned-"loft" with two roommates. For $600/month, he got no smoke alarms, lots of shootings outside, and a truly scary break-in during which the intruder was armed with a razor blade and made off with a laptop: "We didn't get our security deposits back, of course, but they didn't get their last month's rent either, and also I peed all over the kitchen while we were moving out. I figure the score is even." [Brick Underground]
