    They really kicks the black people out the area and charged white people 1000s more for less. It's sad that once white people wanna love in the city like the cool rappers. They kick blacks out, and destroy the culture yea. NYC culture came from ghettos. Including the mob. This new suburban city life won't last

    Her voice...that end-of-sentence-upswing (especially on the word "boyfriend") is grating.

    I'm from Denmark, and this could be a typical Copenhagen apartment - VERY Scandinavian-looking!

    While others are focusing on her not using used bathtubs, I'm over here in love with her Philadendrons... They are so full lush and long! You go girl!

    This apartment is perfect for me. Its not too big and its definitely not too small. It's the perfect size, minus the rent price.

    whaaat! 3375!!! I know that NYC is awesome but paying that for 2 years you can BUY an awesome house here in my country and then rent it for $400 dollars a month. If I had that purchasing power I would be investing it for some years in order to be able to live better afterwards. Just saying.

    The plants are doing much more for the air than the salt lamp will. It’s pretty though.
