A Room Without A View: The Windowless Gramercy Apartment -- $2200!
Yesterday while out with a client I came across this gem -- a large one bedroom apartment in a Gramercy building with laundry and elevator that is completely windowless. This dungeon can be yours for only $2200 a month! (I'm 90% sure that windowless apartments are illegal.)
Even better: the super (who is a dead ringer for Schneider from One Day At A Time) told me today that the only reason it's vacant is because the people who rented it before were using it as an illegal casino. The door is even dented up where the cops had to bust in. (Schneider seemed really proud of that fact.)
It actually could be a good deal if someone needs cheap office space. It's right off Third Avenue in prime Gramercy. Schneider, by the way, mentioned he would really like it if the next tenant was a massage parlor.
Let's do the apartment 360:
The whole place is easily 600 square feet.
Pretty decent kitchen. Full sized appliances!
Bedroom is large -- but still windowless. Would make a great Champagne Room.
