it's spring. people are packing. we're talking about our homes. buy vs. rent. interest rates. ludicrous rents. our wonderful neighborhoods. new gardens. new lives. i thought i'd offer you a few links i recently kinja’d (they are all new york city-centric):
apartment therapy - funny how sometimes you sit there and dream up a blog you wish existed and then months later you find it! interior designer, life coach and handy man, maxwell gillingham-ryan collates all that's newsworthy for apartment living. as a regular on hgtv's mission: organization, you're getting a free peak at what maxwell thinks is valuable information. i agree.
curbed - LES netizen, lockhart steele's new project has launched. everybody put your hands together for curbed, a blog dedicated to new york domains and the lives that fill them. turning boring real estate reports into cranky banter, curbed's downright delightful to read. r.i.p. below 14th, lockhart's diary of delicious downtown eateries, bars and places where the cool kids play.
radcribs - are you sitting on a goldmine? did you overpay? radcribs answers all these questions and more in a language everyone can understand. whether you're a real estate guru or a first time home buyer, this is a site where too much information is a good thing. according to a property report i ran on the building i live in, i discovered that it was built in 1889. huh, that's weird. i thought it was built in 1902. looks like i'm going to be digging up some more information from this site. free info is always rad!
