All of these places look terrifying. I would never live in these. I’ll stick to my lofty suburban lower in Wisconsin, thank you. To only pay a small fraction for what NYC considers luxuries, like a basement, two bedrooms, closets, wood floors, LR, dinning room, huge BR, a full garage, yard with patio and a sun room is totally worth it. Oh, and I’m two blocks from Lake Michigan and a super cute downtown. Also, I found this place on Craigslist!
