(First, Terrible) Manhattan Rental Apartments of the Rich and Famous

Okay, it's not exactly hard news. But this brief piece from the New York Post on the first Manhattan rental apartments of such celebrities as SNL's Andy Samberg and Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter is pretty enjoyable. It's also pretty true to life for most NYC dwellers, most of whom have at least one story to tell about a rough-and-ready New York City rental apartment in their history. (Your blogger certainly has one, which involves a rental apartment in Brooklyn with an uninsulated bathroom and perilously slanting floors) Obviously, if you're already reading the Luxury Rentals Manhattan blog -- or perusing the Manhattan rental guide or apartment listings at Luxury Rentals Manhattan -- you're taking the right steps to ensure that you don't wind up in a Samberg-ianly terrible rental apartment.

File this Post piece under "Just another reason to work with a real estate agent you trust," and enjoy. Also, you'll be relieved to know that there are no rental apartments listed on Luxury Rentals Manhattan without insulated bathrooms. Trust me, that's very good news.
