This Cost What!? Columbus Day Edition

Uploaded by SpacesTV on 08.10.2012


Happy Columbus Day.
So I was doing research and funnily enough, Columbus
didn't even actually discover what we know of as America.
For the most part, he just futzed
around in the Caribbean.
But that has not stopped us from naming an entire avenue
after him on Manhattan's Upper West Side.
So welcome to "This Cost What?
Columbus Avenue Edition."
You want to be Jenny on Columbus's block?
Here is what you can get for various price points.
The least expensive listing at the moment is in the lower
80s, and the studio rents for $2,000 a month, and is located
in a sunny walk-up building with hardwood
floors and great closets.
The best part is that Columbus Avenue and this apartment, one
block from Central Park.
This three bedroom, one bath is also on Columbus Avenue and
located in Lower Harlem.
This is how people actually afford to live on the island
of Manhattan.
There's a dishwasher, exposed brick, and it's also steps
from Central Park.
It's $3,600 a month, so with three roommates, it's only
$1,200 per person.
The listing threw in the word "gorgeous" here.
I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Speaking of gorgeous, welcome to Columbus Circle, where
Columbus Avenue officially starts and the apartments in
the new Time Warner Center are amazing.
This two bedroom with walk-in closets, high ceilings,
floor-to-ceiling windows, two marble baths, really is made
by a stunning view of New York City.
The best part is it's only $12,000 a month, which is
totally doable if you are actually the person that
discovered America.
Which for the record, again, Columbus did not.
So thank you Columbus, for the Bahamas?
