too much to ask?

2 bedrooms
a dishwasher
a washer
a dryer
a small patch of grass to play on
walking distance to a grocery store
no pests
$1500-ish a month in rent

You will literally get laughed right out of your broker's office if these are your criteria for an apartment in NYC. You can have one of these. Maybe.

So sad because it's so, so true. Sigh.

We found out you just have to go to the right brokers. If they start giving you the I-cannot-believe-you look, just pick up your stuff, thank them for their time and high tail it out of there. Then walk to the next realtor's office a half-block up. Eventually you'll get a few miles from your house and one will have the perfect place for you. In the meantime--pray like crazy. You'll be guided. :D

I can't imagine living without that stuff. We have all of that and a little more for less than 850 (not including utilities), but that is in AZ.mi

Tell Evan to hop on the job search man, you gotta get outta there!! I have 5 bedroom, 2 bathrooms, and a whole lotta yard for a fraction of the cost, and it's MINE!
