Illiterate landlord renting out illegal basement apt

Wow, all these things that are included! That kitchen - amazing! And "roons" instead of rooms: something new to try out. And for the exhibitionist in all of us...passersby can peek in while you're on the can.

Hurry, before a registered sex offender steals this baby away from you!

Don't laugh--its better than many people in Queens have. A school friend's brother died in an illegal attic apartment when he was overcome by the intense summer heat.

Many people will die this way or by fire so that the elite can squeeze a few more pennies out of renters or desperate, strapped mortgage-holders.

Does this place have a shower?

Or, is it for illegal aliens only?

Spelling bee not neccessary here. Not bad, better than the Asian hourly bed shares in Elmhurst. Cozy quarters shares 2 to a bed (same sex) generally take out worker slaves crashing between shifts. $220 week - bed/locker only. Bloomberg sanctioned - until the first sweeping fire that has a minimum of 25 deaths surfaces to expose the DOB turning their backs on this high profile housing.

This is probably one of the most depressing places I've ever seen.....

Paging the Department of Buildings. Can someone from this agency investigate this? This should be a criminal offense. When will our city agencies earn their salaries? Such a shame! Someone from that agency should answer the ad and actually see this basement apartment. Then they should fine and prosecute.

This doesn't happen in Brooklyn Heights so the preservation community does not care.

No Pratt studies.

The readers of District Lines have no interest in where staff sleeps at night.

Why are rents high?

One person: $1,500

Four students/workers/nurses: $750 each or $3,000!
