$180 In 1978

In 1978 I moved into a one-bedroom apartment on east 10th Street.

The rent was $180.

The bathtub was in the kitchen.

By the time I left it was $450.

The realty company paid me $10,000 to leave.

The fucking lawyer took a third.

The realty company now charges $2000/month for an apartment with no character.

Which is perfect to the tenants of 2016.

They will never have a naked blonde taking a bath in their kitchen.
