New York Dreams

So me and my guy are thinking of renting a sublet apartment in Brooklyn. It's 1550 a month for a furnished 650 square feet. We'd spend 3 weeks in FL and 1 week in NY...kind of reverse Snowbirds. I've always wanted to live in NY - and I thought it would never happen once I got a stable dancing job in CA (the Manhattan Dancing Dream definitely died when I retired a few years ago). But now I can enjoy the city pain free (if you don't count losing 20 bucks as soon as you set foot outside - trains, water, cabs, lunch, etc.).

I don't know. Is this a good deal or am I getting duped? I actually don't care - I really would like to do it. I'm ready for a bit of a change.

It's either change scenery for a hot minute or redesign the house, chop off my hair and let all my friends go for new exciting ones who will eff me over eventually.

You're all invited - I'm telling you, somewhere in this country we are going to have an alcohol-laden Blogger Palooza shakedown party. A bar in The MN, our cramped apt in Brooklyn, poolside Florida-style...

Somewhere, but it is definitely on. Be there. And if you're square, well then all the better.

You need to come to The MN! We will show you a good time!

DO IT!!
With out a doubt!
I used to live on the East Coast and then picked up and moved to the West Coast several years ago. I'm so glad I did.
Not that I don't like the East Coast. I definitely have love for the "right" coast but this area is just more "me".

I remain neutral on the subject, which is to say I side with you, Lol.

Will you rent your Florida house to me for free?

Hmmm, are you saying you are being pulled towards WPB cK? Are the palm trees calling you? Do you want to spend a quarter of your time here? Curious for a guy who has been documented to be a little skeezed by Florida...

Lollie, it's Friday and I can't help but notice that you haven't posted anything since Monday.

Post, you.

Love, H
