    My favorite thing is that it is on the second floor. I can walk around in my underwear without having to worry about people looking in. My old apartment was on a basement level and I always kept my windows closed and my blinds shut.

    It has central AC which is very nice. It has two large closets. One in the bedroom the width of the room, and one in the living room about 3/4 width of the room. No more clutter.

    I have access to a small pool from a unit nearby. I have not used it yet.

    It came partially furnished. Exactly everything I needed. A bed, a chest of drawers, dining table and chairs, TV stand/armoire, couch, and coffee table.

    A few things need to be fixed, the bathroom vanity is in bad shape and so is the electric range. The landlord will replace both items. The lady who had the place before me was a pig and did not clean well.

    I also have a parking space and another person can park behind me. It's also in a nice neighborhood.

    It's a 20 unit building and one time when I was taking out the trash I was going down the stairs and I hear this guy say "your boyfriend won't like that" when they turned the corner it was two guys, so I have a fellow gay living here.

    I saw many dumps while finding this place and my rent is only $650 a month. I'm only a 3 & 1/2 mile drive from the beach, and the beaches here are beautiful and the water is amazing.

    Congrats, buddy! I live on the 6th floor and I walk around naked all the time which I'm sure doesn't thrill the NYU students across the street (or maybe it does, who knows?)...Your place sounds great. Enjoy!

    Thanks guys. The moving part was hard but it lets you throw out a lot of junk.

    Cool, we will plan a South Florida get together. If I have it at my place be warned that my design style is early caveman, and my goal is comfort before style.

    I know you'll like Ft. Lauderdale. It's a great place. Congrats on your new place. So when is the LPSG housewarming party?

    shitty side of the rich part of town.:biggrin1:

    Thanks, congrats on your move too.

    It does affect your happiness, I've already lost 10 pounds without trying hard, I had lost 20 doing low carb, but got stuck, now I am eating anything, including some sweets.

    When in NYC I love to stop at a pizza joint at 333 3rd. That should be close to you.

    Best of luck with your new apartment! You're lucky it's on the second floor. It's always great to find a place that we like. I've lived in my front unit, single ground floor apartment for 13 1/2 years. It's nothing fancy, but it's home!
