So I looked at this “loft” today. What a dump! Yes, there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is on the top floor of a three story greystone. We do have access to the roof which is cool.
I suppose the place has potential, but it’s really dirty. It’s old. It smells funny. The ceilings are really low. There’s only light in the front and the back. The kitchen is ancient and small. The bathroom tiles are all moldy.
It’s just an old, crappy place. But apparently this is a good price for that neighborhood.
The guys didn’t seem to care about the condition of the apartment. They’re excited because there’s a cool bar/restaurant across the street.
Also, there’s only street parking. The entire building has three spaces in the back, but the landlord is apparently using two of them and the third spot goes to the guy in the basement, Hank. Hank was our referral and he smelled so much like alcohol it made me want to vomit.
I’m not sure if I’m cut out for city living. My mother was supportive. She came out visit and told the landlord that the place needed to be professionally cleaned before we moved in. She said that it wasn’t in a “livable condition.” The landlord is an old Russian woman or something and she said she would have cleaners come out. We’re set to move in on July 1st.
