As some of my reader/s may be aware, I've been looking at real estate listings (some good examples) quite a lot lately, and I've become enamored by the orgy of strange possibilities listings suggest (let's live in Sunset Park! no, Gowanus! no, under that tangle of highways!) & the more or less stupid language of the business. I was more than a little delighted, then, to come across this flyer on a post on Nassau St. I have it with me: 'STUNNING 1BR DOWNTOWN!' Fantastic! Let's go on. 'Princeton.' Oh. 'Located right downtown.' Hmm. 'Very close to Record Exchange and Annex Bar.' This is ridiculous, but there isn't much else to say. And no matter where this place is, this is true. 'Rent $1025 per month, but well worth it,' gentle stranger. Live on South Tulane St! For only a grand a month, the lures of the Annex & Record Exchange can be yours! Drink Sam Adams! Buy records from surly people! 'Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.'
