Hello World, Here's Why I'm Here.

So it seems that there is a little negativity surrounding this blog. Justifiably so.

But if every morning, you walked out and found piss, feces, garbage, rotting food, broken beer bottles, and the like, you'd be a little negative yourself.

What is the purpose of this blog? Just like I said in the inaugural post - to make sure that people know what they could be getting into when they think of renting here.

I rented here because I wanted to be close to the park, with my girlfriend, and live in a place that wouldn't break the bank. My studio costs nearly $1,000/month and is not rent stabilized. You call that cheap? Maybe compared to Manhattan. But I feel sorry for the person who has to pay more for it next year!

When I came to check the place out, there was no trash in the lobby, nor were there feces or urine in the hallways or steps, or bums sleeping wherever they pleased. While I thought the place was certainly not perfect, I never imagined it would be like this. I rented it so quickly because I was tired of seeing places around the park for hundreds of dollars more a month and not being nearly as nice. I was afraid that something I thought I could get would be rented from under my nose. I'll be the first to admit that the inside of my studio is very nice.

I realize the landlord has little power to correct the conditions here. I'm just warning prospective tenants who were once in my position to stay out of this place and however much another building charges for rent, it's worth it.

I have no hate for Brooklyn or PLG. I realize the parade post was off-topic and have since removed it. There are many nice people I've in 10 Midwood. Nonetheless...

10 Midwood: Lobby-ing for Change.

It never gets any better. I'm so sick of this.

10 Midwood: Stairway to Heaven? Hell No.

I was coming down the steps this morning and found all this nastiness near the lobby. I went right back up and grabbed my camera because I thought you guys might like to see this.

Can we get a health inspector? I'm calling on Tuesday.

10 Midwood: In Rare Form Today!

I have not posted in a few days. This isn't because things at 10 Midwood have improved - I just was busy! It still sucks here.

I woke up this morning and found 10 Midwood to be fit for a king today. Wanna see?

Coke can in the elevator.

Mystery hair.

More free food for Midwood pets!

Thirsty? Have a malt liquor.

Morning mystery meat. Delicioso!

Soon to be deceased from eating the morning mystery meat.

Extra storage space for everyone!

Wow! Now THIS is an accomplishment.

An old classic. Who doesn't like stepping in shit on the steps?

All these photographs were taken in a five minute time frame. Can you imagine living here? Don't do it. I wish I hadn't.
