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.
