The Worst Room

May 22, 2013

TUMBLR just sold for $1.1B cash. Not only does it have some of the most beautiful collections of inspiration, but it also has spots like “The Worst Room” which completely revolves around affordable housing in New York City. Of course, the satire is apparent and, while these are real, they are not the best depiction of all this city has to offer. Most of these listings are from Craigslist. Affordability changes when you move to New York City.

What do you think — is it worth it? I know many people who have found roommates and affordable housing through Craigslist but I imagine it being very difficult. Especially when there are places like this out there! (Props to Molly for finding an awesome pad within a week-long visit.)

Here are some the best from “The Worst Room.” (Psst… notice the captions and prices!)

If You Aspire to be a Brooklyn Hipster: East Williamsburg, Brooklyn {$1061.00}

“This apartment is one of the last of its kind in the area.”

If You Dream about Sleeping with Your Clothes: Union Square, Manhattan {$1000.00}

“I am looking for someone to move into a large closet space in one of the three bedrooms of my apartment. The bedroom has two closets but there is no need for it so we are looking to sublet it as a living space to a 4th roommate. The closet is about 5 feet wide and 7 feet long. It has no windows and think it would be ideal for a twin size bed and small night stand…amazing location.”
