I've been on a grand tour of wacky apartment sublets since moving to NYC this past winter. For a guy who grew up in the Pennsylvania suburbs, it's an eye-opener. Things that would once have seemed completely unreasonable are starting to look promising -- like this $US8000 four-bedroom school bus.
It's got its own toilet. It's got a lot of crumpled bedsheets. It's very dusty. OK, I'm not actually desperate enough to give up the apartment hunt and live in an optimistically-described "school bus home." But you've gotta admire the sheer delusional chutzpah that's wrapped up in this thing. Truth be told, it's not even the worst place I've seen. [Craigslist]
