The Worst Room

The Worst Room

The Worst Room is a Tumblr account I’ve been following that encourages folks to send in their nominations for the “worst” sublet rentals in NYC. Every day a “winner” gets picked.

My favorite of late was May 15, posted with the above pic.  See that little section of blue near the top?  That’s what you get for $700 a month. Here’s the description:

“East Village, Manhattan. $700.00  (Loft Bed Above Closet in Kitchen)”

Or my other favorite – a walk-in closet for rent for $1,000 a month.  See below:

The description says ““I am looking for someone to move into a large closet space in one of the three bedrooms of my apartment. The bedroom has two closets but there is no need for it so we are looking to sublet it as a living space to a 4th roommate. The closet is about 5 feet wide and 7 feet long. It has no windows and think it would be ideal for a twin size bed and small night stand. Amazing Location”

You’ve gotta love NYC.
