“I’m looking for a room to rent or an apartment share starting in early May for about two months – so about May 10- July 15. I’m Lindsey Leger and I recently graduated from RIT’s photojournalism program. I’m moving to the DC area for a summer internship, but hope to keep living in DC beyond the summer. I’m really looking forward to joining the community of DC shooters, so it would be great to get to know someone through this. Because my work is in Arlington, I’d really prefer someplace in VA or DC near a metro line.
I don’t plan to drive much, but I do need a place to park my car. An unfurnished room is fine, as I have my own furniture I can bring. I don’t have pets (but it’s great if you do!), I’m a non-smoker and am clean and quiet as a tenant. $500 with utilities is really the top of my budget for housing, and something closer to $400 would be ideal. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 702 332 3790. Thanks”
Trip Advisor just put out their latest “Superb Summer Hotels under $59″ list and it might be a great way to plan a cheap stay to work on that photo project you’ve been meaning to get to:

Bedroom with Shared Bath in dog friendly home:
A furnished bedroom with a shared bath will be available for 12 weeks from May 25th to August 15th at the rate of $250.00 per week. The home is located in North Cleveland Park, two and a half blocks from the Van Ness metro stop (red line). It is near a post office, grocery store and pharmacy. The owner has had over 50 non-family members live here in the past sixteen years, some for only a month, several for as much as two, three, or even four years. Most of those who have lived with her have been professionals in their mid-twenties to mid-forties who want to provide their dogs with daily care in a secure, loving environment. Those who have lived here who have not had their own dogs have enjoyed the dogs owned by other residents. All dogs are neutered and trained to be good housemates.
All utilities are included in the rent, as are the outdoor seating areas and the use of the common rooms on the main floor of the house (formal living room, gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry, breakfast room, and family room). Wifi as well as hard line Internet hookup and a full compliment of Comcast cable TV stations are also provided. Other amenities are laundry facilities, a treadmill for dogs, computer and fax for common use, a rug doctor, and weekly cleaning. Only the weekly cleaning ($15.00 a week), our poop pick-up service ($25-$35 a month depending on the number of dogs in residence), and the doggie day care ($210.00 a month or $10.00 a day) incur extra charges. The house is four stories and is equipped with an elevator. It is elegantly furnished, well maintained, and provides privacy for all residents.
Her home is so large (just under 10,000 square feet) that everyone has plenty of space and privacy. Along with the bedroom offered here on one of the upper floors, is Gaurav’s bedroom (who shares the bath and is a financial analyst with Fannie Mae), and Ben (a lawyer who works from home). Also on that floor in a studio apartment occupied by Joah and Leah, both of whom work for the Federal Government. There are two living spaces on the ground floor: a studio apartment that will be occupied by a new tenant in May, and a one-bedroom apartment, which will be occupied by a new resident on May 1st. On the main floor adjacent to the kitchen lives Kate, the household manager who has worked for Cynthia for nine years. Cynthia lives on the top floor.
As mentioned, this is a dog-friendly house. ***Kate provides doggie day care (Dog-Whisperer style) on weekdays for our canine residents for $10.00 a day or $210.00 per dog per month (and can do evenings and weekends, if needed). *** Five dogs are currently living here: two Boxers (one is the owner’s; the other is Ben’s), a Pomeranian/ Papillion (mine), a long-haired Chihuahua (Kate’s) and a Great Swiss Mountain Dog (Joah’s and Leah’s). Two Italian Greyhounds, whose owner used to live in the ground floor apartment and who bought a house a few doors up, join our canine residents for care here during the day. The dogs play in appropriate groups enjoying the large backyard which has a good-sized pond with a waterfall and a dog house with heating and air conditioning. Additionally, Kate has two small parrots, and two canaries live in the owner’s room.
Two spaces for rent in photographer-owned historic South Bronx building. Built in 1871, this is one of the most beautiful buildings in the Bronx, just up the street from the 2 and 5 express trains at 149th/3rd Ave stop. 20 minutes from Grand Central and Times Square. Located at Courtlandt Ave & 151st street. I am seeking socially conscious photographers/artists/journalists as tenants–I’m hoping to put together an informal documentary collective of sorts . Others will be considered as well. I will live in the building myself. Please respond to email@example.com
1) Sunny, enormous 1250 sq. ft. (115 sq. meter) two-bedroom apartment. Completely renovated, perfect condition–13-foot ceilings, (four meters) wooden windows, hardwood floors. New stove and refrigerator, but it is otherwise unfurnished. This apartment is as nice as anything you will find in NYC, it could easily be shared by three people. (Bathroom is new but small, no frills). Free heat and water. Tenant pays electricity only. I’m seeking a responsible, mature, relatively quiet tenant. NO SMOKERS–if you smoke you must do it outside or on the fire escape. (My mother died from lung cancer–quit now!) If you need a roommate, you will have to find one yourself. I cannot arrange roommates. Tenants must have good credit, references and deposit. No dogs. Rent is $1800 per month, one-year lease minimum. security deposit required. Move in on Feb. 1, possibly earlier. You can see pictures here:
2) 1250 sf (115 sq. meter) commercial space on ground floor (of same building) with enormous windows, great southern light, 14-foot ceilings (five meters). This is really an amazing open space. Perfect for photo gallery, studio, workshop, etc, but no living. Has half bathroom, no shower. Fully ADA compliant (Americans with Disabilities Act), wheelchair accessible. I will install a hardwood floor in at my expense if tenant desires. This building is landmarked by the NYC historic landmarks commission, any signage outside the building must be approved by the city. Inside, you can do whatever you want. Rent is $2800 per month, negotiable for the right tenant. One-year lease minimum. 2 months security deposit. Pictures are here: (please note that construction barricades have come down since I took these photos, the space is now flooded with light). Large outdoor patio negotiable, see photos
Please be advised: this is the Melrose neighborhood in the South Bronx. If you are not from NYC, please do some research on the South Bronx, you may not be comfortable here. This is a working-class neighborhood–no sushi restaurants or hipster bars. Just a real, vibrant NYC neighborhood with good people.
Must have good credit, no dogs.
