Hey dude it's $2,000/month + utilities (comes out to ~$100). Let me know if you're interested, and I can send over pictures / video of the place. Our other roommate just took a VC job in Boston so we're looking for someone to replace him. All furniture in the living room is from CB2, the location is dope, and the building is epic

It sounds awesome!

It does sound great. I'm in process with a REPE firm in NYC (don't live there yet) and my 2nd round went well but even if that works out it won't be until after Labor Day.

I will take you up on your offer in the unlikely scenario that I get the job after Labor Day and you haven't found someone yet

I used to have a place on the border of midtown and UES for 2100 a month

Admittedly you're in a nicer neighborhood, but it's still expensive

Tbh though good luck. I realize my first comment was snarky, it just stems from me hating roommates

You should post an ad on craigslist and demand anything you want - like only looking for a chick for a good dynamic etc.

I posted an ad years ago interviewing for 2 chicks for a 4BR in NYC and just had mountains of replies. I asked for any info and pic or facebook if possible, then had in person interviews for those that made the cut.

Put some extra time into it and make sure you vet your future roommates and just feel comfortable with them as this is a situation where you can prepare a lot and filter a ton of people, especially if you have a good place locked in.

Good luck. Cheers.

Seriously though. Filter.

Interviewed a lot of chicks that didn't pull through on sending photos and info and they sucked in in-person interviews. People with legit social network background or sending lots of good photos to represent who they were - were a great asset to building the case of them being a good roommate.

You definitely have to make the case that you're badass though. The building sounds badass and provide any info you feel comfortable with to get them sold on being a roommate if everything vibes.

Didn't you have a bad experience where you slept with a roommate that was a stage 10 clinger and when you told her you weren't interested in having a relationship she told the cops that you "beat her" and thus weren't allowed back into the apartment?
