Alot of people have been worried about the economy. I thought this might help someone. If not, it will make you laugh. Creative people survive....

I am a female in my mid 60's and I am looking for a room mate. Times are tight and I need some extra money.
I am willing to rent out my bathroom in my 1 bedroom east village home.
My bathroom is large. You can easily put a twin air mattress in there. I only ask that when I need to use the bathroom, you or your air mattress are not in it.
I do ask that when you are in the apartment, you confine yourself to the bathroom. I do not feel comfortable with a stranger walking around my living room. This might change as I get to know you better.
You may have guest over as long as they are cnfined to the bathroom as well. This might seem a bit odd but please remember the rent is $400 and the bathroom is large.
East Village...New York's older apartments have the most insane architecture. They are quick to advertise a 4th Floor Walkup as if it's the apartment of your dreams (add your groceries to that equation and visualize the nightmare). You may even climb those four flights of stairs to find your beloved bathtub...in the kitchen! I suppose that you could advertise that as culinary ambiance.
I had a friend that had one of those apartments. The front door had a long black bar as a security device. There was an impression in the door in which the top of the pipe rested. The pipe stood at an angle against the door and the bottom was secured by a raised wedge of wood that sat up in the floor. By day, the bathtub doubled as a table whose top was removed for bathing. I always wondered if he ever tripped over that block of wood in the night? Ouch! - Perhaps the lady could advertise the bathroom as a bedroom with good acoustics? Singers love that.
