Apartment 300 G

Hey, this guy never approached me:

They hire Mike Grabow. It's his job to talk rent-regulated tenants out the door, a feat he accomplishes with a variety of tools -- chiefly, disarming candor and great gobs of cash. Many of the buyouts he's negotiated ended with the tenant $300,000 richer.

On the other hand, $300,000 won't get you very far in New York City these days. Maybe I could take it and start a new life as a beach bum in the Fiji Islands.

In other news, the Rent Guidelines Board is looking for hikes of up to 10.5%. I've done a quick calculation, and it means that our building manager still won't change the burned out light in the hallway.
