the lady who lived in front of my apartment lived their since the 1970s. She payed about $700 rent for a two bedroom apt. She moved out and i was gonna grab that apartment, but the rent for it rose to $2000. Three people who moved in all chip in to pay rent.
Thats for a fucking apartment in nyc (queens), a fucking house you share with three other family goes for 400,000. Everything is just stagnant; jobs, wages, and opportunities.
