Your chance to live in a cabin on the Lower East Side

Oh, sorry — thats's a Cabin Caravan. So this Craigslist ad is making the rounds:


Small unusual cabin caravan in Manhattan's lower east side situated on a forested edge of a private lot with 24/7 security. Large windows and a skylight ensure an open and airy feel in the minimally furnished interior outfitted with a full sized bed, desk, lamp and kettle for making tea or coffee. Linens and blankets will be provided.

Appealing places, cheap and otherwise, within walking distance for dining and entertainment and several small parks within easy access to public transportation. A bicycle and a lock are included with the cabin if you prefer travel above ground.

The cabin has no running water or toilet, there is a toilet on the property steps away.
Previous guests have used a convenient 24 hour gym to shower.


Single occupancy or couple preferred, perfect for someone quiet, clean, independent, no pets.

All the windows shut and lock and there are curtains so you are not exposed, there is a heater, the space is small and warms easily, there are plenty of extra blankets if necessary.

$900 for the entire month, can be prorated.

Here's what it allegedly looks like...




Whether this is all real, well, you never know with Craigslist. Still, we're feeling a bout of cabin fever coming on...

But does it have free internet?

Does it have iPhone AND Blackberry chargers? Cause, you know, what kind of cabin doesn't?!
Also, was the wood for the cabin sourced locally? Is it free range, fair-trade, organic wood?

Cabin? All I see is a $900/month shack. I guess Grounds Keeper Willie is gonna have to move to the outer boroughs.

Anon, it's strictly BYO typewriter. However, free white-out and 10% rebate after publication of your manifesto.
