So you've been displaced from your rent stabilized apartment because you couldn't afford the rising rents. Where can you go? Take a look at "THE WORST ROOM" for a sampling of what's available in New York these days.
THE WORST ROOM is getting a lot of buzz (see here, here, here, here, ...). But it wouldn't be funny if it weren't true. There's a terrible shortage of apartments in New York City, and what's available is often laughably uninhabitable at infuriatingly high rents. Another year of high guidelines would undoubtedly send many renters over the edge, and into a market full of unaffordable "affordable housing" and luxury-priced shoe boxes.
