East Village bathroom for rent (presented without any potty humor)


From Craigslist (via dustbury.com)

I am a female in my mid 60's and I am looking for a room mate. Times are tight and I need some extra money.
I am willing to rent out my bathroom in my 1 bedroom east village home.

My bathroom is large. You can easily put a twin air mattress in there. I only ask that when I need to use the bathroom, you or your air mattress are not in it.

I do ask that when you are in the apartment, you confine yourself to the bathroom. I do not feel comfortable with a stranger walking around my living room. This might change as I get to know you better.
You may have guest over as long as they are cnfined to the bathroom as well. This might seem a bit odd but please remember the rent is $400 and the bathroom is large.

there's no way that ad is for real.

I wouldn't be shocked if the ad was for real, and I would be less shocked if more than a few people would go for it. When I didn't have a place to stay, I slept in the small office of a store I worked in. Later on, when I had my own store, I let more than one homeless employee sleep in the bathroom for an extended period of time. And although our bathroom was no palace, it was way better than their other choices.

It seems like a phony....though, the more I look at it, the more genuine it sounds....

In the 80's, a friend of mine wanted to live in New York so bad that he rented a shelf in a closet in the West Village for a couple hundred a month. He literally slept in the closet, which was all the more funny since he was gay.
