Meditation: On Neighbors

Pin it button
Forget good bones, great views, high ceilings--it's neighbors that can make or break an apartment. We all have our stories: the woman who heard machines in the walls and set out to dismantle them, 3B's mysterious odors, thumping bass at 2 am, the guy who kept roosters.

And then there are the great neighbors, the ones who help you paint the stairs, who keep your cats when you're out of town, who let you tag along on Costco trips and invite you over to watch the L Word on their big-screen TV, who let you play with their amazing toddler. When they say they're moving to a bungalow in Maine, you want to bar the door.

Which is to say, we're looking for new upstairs neighbors out on Cortelyou Road in Brooklyn. For $1500 a month, you get a seven room floor-through in the Best.Neighborhood.Ever, and--if I say so myself--great neighbors. If you're looking for a new home June 1, drop me a line. I'll be in Atlanta for a few days eating biscuits and taking meetings, but I'll get back to you as soon as I return.
