I had to pay for the cleaning and painting of the old apartment, but now it looks fantastic, like we never lived there. I may have complained loudly about the apartment, but the truth is that we had too much furniture and junk in there, and a more creative decorator could live comfortably for years. I tried to list the apartment in my firm's daily newsletter, but they rejected the ad because we're using a broker to find a new tenant, and the firm's policy is not to print any real estate services' listings.
So I'll post my ad here.
One bedroom apartment available in heart of Greenwich Village, just off Sixth Avenue. New fixtures in bath and kitchen, large closet. Apartment has been renovated in the last four years and recently painted. Pets OK. Steps from West 4th St. subway station (A,C,E,F,V trains), five minute commute to Lower Manhattan and 10 minutes to midtown. Dozens of great restaurants and shops within walking distance, one block from Washington Square Park. Rent is $1570. Available July 1. For more information, or to see the apartment, please contact Wil Jean-Baptiste at 347-693-4973 or at email@example.com.
I'll add that the building is full of friendly neighbors, the apartment itself is quiet since it's in the rear of the building and far from the street noise, and it's extremely safe, even though it's on the ground floor.
