In case you can't read it, this sign, hanging in the window of a NYC relator says:
"Champagne and Cavier for the Cost of Peanuts."
How much are those peanuts in the window you may well ask? $899,000. Plus a maintenance fee of $754 a month. (About the price of a normal person in this country's rent.)
Only in NYC would a 1 BEDROOM (!) apartment costing nearly a million dollars be compared to peanuts. What is wrong with this city?
In comparison, here's the property you can get in Austin, TX for the same "peanuts."
A four bedroom 3 1/2 bathroom place on 2 acres! Check out this beauty!
But okay, you're saying...I don't have 900,000 so this means nothing. Here's another for you then.
IN AUSTIN: 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath.
IN QUEENS: 1 bedroom, 1 bath.
(I had to use Queens since you can't get anything for $200,000 in Manhattan.)
Okay, that's enough for now. I know I've depressed all of you in NYC and made the rest of you snicker with superiority. :)
