Ten grand? How will I cover my tab at Milano's? Ten grand? I hope the feast of St. Gennaro stretches up that far again. Ten grand? Thank goodness there's a view of Jersey Street.
Ten bloody thousand dollars. What in the world has happened?

That's roughly $3,333. per bedroom! Who is going to pay that much money to and live with roommates? Certainly a family can't afford that rent, even with two incomes.

At this point I don't care who rents what in that building, I walk past it every day on my way to work and I'm so sick of the uneven sidewalk and the rotting plywood around the ground floor.

Do what they want to the apartments inside, it's still a butt ugly building the color of what comes out of an ugly butt. there's no doubt that it's gonna be a skidmark stain on this neighborhood for decades to come... unless they take it down and start over.
