Sacrificing space for location/transport? Classic. Many of us do it.

Where did you end up?

90s and CPW.  Ironically, it was about the same I would pay on the UES off York Ave., and only about $100/month more than comparable places in Williamsburg, Park Slope North, and Brooklyn Heights.  I also considered Hoboken for a bit, until I calculated my commute to the UES.  Again, the savings wasn't sufficiently substantial to merit the move.

EDIT: It sounds more impressive than it looks. I have bars on my windows, overlooking the trash for my building.

Hey I'm in a similar situation in the 70's and Columbus. Bars on the window and a view of the trash. Has been like that for 3 years and will be like that for another 2. Too poor to move and it requires too much inertia. I have to disassemble all my furniture to get it out the door. *sigh*

That's nice. I used to live around that area for a while, back in the days when the B train was still running all the way downtown.
