In Refinery29’s Sweet Digs, we have a look contained in the typically small, typically spacious houses of millennial metropolis dwellers.Today, govt producer Angela Sumner exhibits us her West Village studio, the place she pays $2,500 in hire.
In New York City, there’s an oft-whispered phrase: “New York lucky.” It principally means stumbling upon a seemingly not possible deal — a rent-stabilized house in a main neighborhood, a reduced pattern sale costume in your measurement, a roommate who is not loopy (and can also be clear and can typically make you breakfast).
R29 staffer Angela Sumner managed to seek out that along with her house in West Village. After subletting in a neighboring constructing and getting seen by the superintendent for recycling, she was supplied first dibs on a rent-stabilized alcove studio in a fourth-floor walkup.
For $2,500, Angela occupies roughly 500-square-feet, two blocks from the Hudson River, with precise views from her window and loads of pure mild. “The building next to me is a historic building, so it will never go any higher,” Angela says. “And if you crane out the fire escape, you can see the Hudson River. You can also get a peekaboo view of the Freedom Tower from my living room.” And in West Village, with that a lot area, and a good quantity of pure mild? Yeah, we might say that is New York fortunate.
