Looking at 89 Clinton Street

Walked by the newly renovated 89 Clinton St. between Delancey and Rivington the other day....



Open house? Don't mind if I do!



The unit I saw was advertised as a three-bedroom apt. The bedrooms -- I only noticed two -- were on the smallish side. But very nice. Tiny closet.



This unit has access to the still-being-groomed outdoor space. You have to share the space with the two apartments below...




Everything about the space, which had two bathrooms, was topnotch... wide plank oak flooring, washer and dryer, high ceilings, dishwasher, exposed brick, pinpoint hallogen lighting, individual climate control and video intercom....There was even a wine thingee in the kitchen for people who don't want to keep wine in the fridge. (Will it also hold beer?)



And all on Clinton Street! According to the realtor's Web site, this is an "Awesome Trendy location."

So...what's the bottom line here for the two-bedroom space? $4,695. Oh, excuse me for a moment.

OK, OK... there's no fee. And there's something about a free month of rent with a two-year lease. And with a two-year lease, there will not be a rent increase. Still, that rent seems like a lot in these recessive times. I was under the impression that prices were coming down... The agent said that most of the units were already rented for a May 1 move-in date. What do I know then.

Oh! And the sales agent was sitting in the living room. His said this could be converted into a third bedroom.

You can't beer in there it's only for wine. Beer would void the manufacturers warranty.

Ha... even import?

those sales agents were probably lying through their teeth about all the May 1 move-ins.

And that block is far from super trendy, thank goodness. A Chinese supermarket and lots of street life.

WTF is with all the fedders boxes? I seriously want to know who thinks that is an acceptable building technique. Especially when there are four of them right at the street level.

Yeah and think of all the piss on those ground level air conditioners. I can't believe that this was not even considered. This is the same street with lots of bars around. At 3 AM,

I need to pee ... oh there's a good spot ... right near the air conditioner!
