Our rent for a fourth floor walkup was $43.00 then $49.00 and after they put in a new stove it went up
to $53.00. The building was torn down for a middle school.

I lived in Manhattan on and off for a number of years. Today I couldn't even afford a studio.

There are places in the Bronx around Pelham Parkway and other neighborhoods where rent has shot
up............but before moving up here, we considered City Island but that was too expensive too. I
really like City Island but boy did it get expensive.
