Maintenance is supposedly a payement for the building services - a doorman (i.e. bunch of useless idiots that will open the door and lose your packages), sometimes a gym (that you'd never attend because it's a fucking joke) and so on. It's not cheap but it's kinda worth it. Let's put it this way - would you rather live in Manhattan and pay common charges and property taxes or live in Cleveland, Ohio on the cheap?

I own my place, but I had a 180 pound dog and no rental would take me with him. Popeye was the main reason why I decided to buy, lost my lease and it was either a condo or the burb. In November of 2008 my place was a fucking steal, the seller was someone I knew from the L shop. The good - nice roof deck, equidistant to CP and Carl Schurz park, close to the 86th street subways (4/5/6 and the Q). On the negative side, it's a stupid multi-level unit with an open floor plan (it's a pain to live in), maintenance is totally crazy, the neighborhood is too commercial for me etc. There is no perfection in the world.

I have a friend who lives in the country, and it's supposed to be an hour from 42nd Street. A lie! The only thing that's an hour from 42nd Street is 43rd Street!

SirGrayWalrus:

Did you pay in all cash? How did you purchase it?

All cash. The guy was selling because he lost his job and could not pay the mortgage. I lowballed him, he countered and I lowballed again - boom, done.

Did renovations in 2014. Dealings with contractors in the NYC is NOT FUN.

Awesome looking dog!

never understood/enjoyed the concept of city living.

stacked in boxes one upon another.

why not use the money to get a villa in Florida? or a Tuscan-styled house out West?
more privacy, more land, less people.

I prefer city life more than boring suburban life. I've lived in suburb my entire life and I can definitely say that I don't plan on going back anytime soon.
