Is This Awful Apartment In New York Or San Francisco?

The room is free, but you have to share with a nudist.... NYC or SF?

Posted on

New York and San Fransisco are notorious for their soul-crushing real estate prospects. But can you tell which terrible Craigslist offering is from your city?

All of these are recent Craigslist listings. Some are for rooms in an apartment with roommates, some are their own apartment. Neighborhood details in the listings have been blurred.

  1. 1. Is this room you share (there's another bed in there, FYI) with another person in NYC or SF?

    Sure, you have to share a room, but it's only $500!

  2. 2. $1 for a small bedroom? What's the catch??? OH, you have to live with a nudist (and exercise nude yourself)

    "I am a male nudist who exercises innocent in home nudity. I am happy to offer free apartment share for straight male student or athlete who is in need for a place to stay both long or short term. We exercise nudity in home at all time ( no sex). "

    It's in the Castro district, and a great deal if you love being nude. Listing here.

  3. 3. Would this bleak view be of the Golden Gate or the Brooklyn Bridge?

    The listing boasts, "nice respectable roommates" but also

"sorry, no guest is welcome
only light cooking"

    Although this doesn't belong to a BuzzFeed employee (we give out totes as gifts to clients and at other events etc...), I guess the bag was a giveaway. This is in BedSty. Listing here.

  9. 9. Where can you live in a commune with an unnumbered amount of SantaCon lovers?

    Yes, all those people live there. According to the listing: "We're a big house of people who really like the outdoors, music festivals, playing/watching sports (though we are definitely not all amazing athletes), exploring the city and going out or cooking dinner together."

    This was a freebie. You earned it. This is in SOMA/South Beach and you can earn a spot in the house by going to a "family dinner" and winning them over. Listing here.
