I hope not.
I never wanted to have this debate again.
Just wanted some ideas on how to achieve my goals.

What I want to see from this thread is exactly how on earth do TWO(!!) PEOPLE live in a 180 square foot apartment?

I'm mean seriously, HOW DO YOU DO IT?

Do you have a Murphy bed?

Does it have a bathroom, or is it down the hall?

Do you have a refrigerator, or a stove-ette? Is that what you call a two burner stove? Have you spent the last 20 years eating take out for every single meal?

If you actually HAVE stuff, where do you put it? Is there a closet of any kind?

Is there any seating other than the bed itself? A table of any kind?

I'm not unaware of the realities of New York City living, it's just that two people in 180 square feet just boggles the mind!

When we move out we'll post a picture.

2000+ a month---
Believe it.

That's because it's not real and this whole thread is just a troll to get people worked up about rent controls.

What?????
I could care less about rent control issues.
I'm glad I have it--but I do understand why people want it gone.
Please don't start with comments like that.

If you are planning to move anyway, you deserve nothing. The LL owes you nothing.
While I am all for control and stabilization, people think they deserve something when they move. They don't.

The LL was paying you to move to make more money.
You are both greedy.

but anyway, good luck in your new home.

I agree with the hubub. It's one thing if you do not want to move and your LL offers you money. It's another situation when you decide to move and now feel entitled to money. He doesn't need to know that you plan to move. But why are you spending time on here asking for advice? Most of the people in this thread continue to express their ethics-related opinions, and no, you cannot just tell people not to post here if they aren't going to directly serve your needs. Why don't you get offline and think of what you want to do, and ask him already, and go move. Use your brain, you've got plenty of suggestions here already and you've been harping on this for months... get it over with already.
