A small cramped studio apartment in [tag-tec]Manhattan[/tag-tec] is now going for around $2,000 per month.
(As we remember from the movies, those are the dollhouse sized living spaces without the bedroom. In fact the playhouse my father built for me when I was five is probably about the same size).
The one bedroom apartments are starting at a whooping $2,737. That’s up from $2,227, which is what they were way back in 2002.
In spite of it all demand is orange alert hot. That’s because [tag-self]Manhattan[/tag-self] is still bringing in the crowds who need to live there.
Water at $55 per Bottle?
I’m not making fun, mind you, but there are certain sections in [tag-ice]New York[/tag-ice] where water is now going for $55 per bottle.
Apparently people are collecting water bottles.
According to a water bar owner, it’s the massive effort to procure the rare water that makes the price go up. Or at least that’s what I think he said.
They get it from British Columbia, Canada," Felicissimo said. "It’s a three-day journey by yacht to get to their water source."
Right, it’s kind of over my head too. As we all know it takes more funds to travel by yacht. Yaks would probably be cheaper.
Another question- when did water bars replace water fountains?
