Waiting Lists

Wow, I just called an apartment co-op inquiring about rental availability, and they said they had a wait list starting at ten years, for a bachelor.  What?!

Necessary questions:

  • What could make a building so good that people are willing to plan one or two apartments ahead that they want to live there?  I know it costs nothing to add a name to the list, but don’t you think of moving forward with your life, especially…
  • …When it comes to bachelor apartments.  If I was living in a bachelor now, I would certainly hope to move up a little more in ten years.  What about owning a house and building equity?
  • Maybe it’s worth calling back, just in case my life 12-15 years from now is nothing at all like I hope it’ll be and at least I have a fantastic apartment.  Damn, that’s depressing.
