"A dorm for adults"

And now, six days and eight apartments later, I present where I will be spending my next year in NY: in this place

Oh my god, I read that article and thought of you! Hehehe. Now you're actually going to live there? Does that woman really have that hair?

Good luck with it! Who's your roomie?

James said...

Going to be picking some of them with her today.

And yes she does, but she's older than she looks in the picture, if that makes any sense, one judging amother's age from the back of their head.

Benny said...

What? From a catalogue? How creepy is that?!

I know how they keep rent down. That woman sells tapes of all y'all to Bravo so we can Watch What Happens.

James said...

Yes, she keeps a comprehensive profile on everyone who inquires and it's built from Google searches of their Facebook, MySpace, and Friendster accounts.

hi james,
just found your blog through clicking around... i loved reading your analysis of sf, having grown up there (upper haight) and moved to new york 9 years ago. i miss sf but have such mixed feeling about it. good luck with your move to nyc. if you don't like harlem, try brooklyn...

James said...

Thanks for the kind words, Lena. About Brooklyn -- I've heard good things. Is that where you are now?

Benny said...

Only good things can ever be said about Brooklyn.

You're alive!

James said...

I am! How's things? How was CHI?

Lena said...

hi again
yeah, i moved to brooklyn last year after being in manhattan for 8 years. so many people live in brooklyn now, it thought of less and less as an alternative/2nd choice to manhattan, and more a place of it's own. brooklyn is so big, and each area is different... there's williamsburg = hipster central. and i'm in fort greene which is very artsy too but has more of a cultural and age mix than williamsburg.

I am not even going to have this conversation with you through blog comments. Let me take some time out of my busy last-day-of-work schedule tomorrow and send a proper message. Feel free to pre-empt me with one of your own!

Teaser: Got the job, saw the city, exhausted the boy. Kisses.

James said...

Anonymous, you're right. Is that you Ahmed?

James! I was going to email you about your living situation when I found the link to your blog. When do you move into your adult dorm? Did student housing let you down?

KING!
