how expensive can it get?

I’m looking for a new apartment… in Manhattan. That’s my first mistake.

Thursday I found a Craigslist listing for $3100 3-bedroom apartment in Gramercy. “That must be a lie” my future roommate and I thought. We called the broker who had posted the ad and he said that we could look at it that night, but we’d have to meet in his office first.
I’m already very familiar with looking for apartments on Craigslist. The broker lures you in with a magical, but fake apartment. All of a sudden it’s “not as listed”, but he has several better, more expensive places for us! (Just sign on the dotted line promising 15% of a year’s rent.) This guy was no different.

It appears that except for a few remaining places on the UES, there is no where to live in Manhattan. Even the broker said so. “There are just too many people living on Manhattan who make a lot of money.”

Stop making so much money!

    Yikes. I have been thinking of moving to Manhattan and working there. Considered buying a condo. But if this is rent Holy Moly, not worth it.
