Moving and shaking

The intersection of Myrtle, Nostrand and me is quickly becoming a thing of the past. I didn’t renew my lease, and so I will be moving out of everyone’s favorite yuppie spaceship. I’m off to another famous New York neighborhood, the East Village. I found living at 756 Myrtle inconvenient due to the forced dependence [...]

Sweet seduction

I have to admit, I was somewhat seduced by aptsandlofts.com, the broker for the MYNT. I walked into their offices one day and asked if they could help me find an apartment. I said I didn’t want to pay more than $1500, but that was a mistake. I should have said I don’t want to [...]

Moving day!

Today I moved (read: put my bags) into my new apartment on Myrtle and Nostrand. I had been scheduled to move in at 8 am, but there was an issue with the keys which had me waiting around a bit (although not too long). I met some of my other fellow Mynters and on my [...]
