While you might expect to pay $2,500 or more for a one bedroom in SoHo, Thomas Lombardi pays just $55.01/month. Lombardi lives in the same apartment his family moved into when they emigrated from Italy in the 1940s. His neighbor, Tom Combs, pays $71.23/month. The landlord neglected to file the paperwork to be able to increase the rents, so they stay where they are for the time being.
