From the NY Post:
Two NYU grads and a pal who love living in the Big Apple but don't want to pay its high rents are happy campers -- each shells out $100 a month to pitch a tent in a friend's Brooklyn back yard.
"We're trying to make ends meet at a time when it's hard to make ends meet," said Louis Frank, 22, who set up his $169 waterproof, 4½-foot-by-9-foot tent on a wooden plank in the fenced-in Bushwick back yard on June 1.
"We have parents that could give us money to get an apartment," the NYU grad told The Post, "but it's nice to be independent."
Ok, boys, have fun. But what will you do in the winter?
