With the advent of the wheel and manned flight, why would anyone stick around somewhere so expensive?
I could almost live for a year on $3500!

Ya betta believe it! These are the "market rate" blokes as my British friends say. The city has gitten to the point there isn't anything a lot cheaper & in a good neighborhood. Some rents are more like 1 bedrm is fr $3500-4200/mo. I chose to think out of the box. Tiny house is good but where to put it? Bushouse is logical.

I'd keep it as stealth and sneaky as possible...

I live with a Brit myself... Although Scots don't often call themselves British.

We are looking for a plain-jane cargo van. Preferably a Ford or Dodge. We want to use it for "stealth camping" on the weekends.
And for hauling tools and supplies around during the week.

I tell ya the rent here NYC is a catastrophe. And affordable housing is a scam or should I say a sham, lol. Too many in need for too little amount of apartments. After waiting 5 yrs thinking out of the box is gr8.

I doubt the neighbors in any sort of "affordable housing" are the most savory.
I'd rather live in a van myself, money aside.

If it's anything like Boulder, it's not that your neighbors are "unsavory", it's that the rent on "affordable housing" is still higher than we can afford!

(Just the other day, I saw a couple of over-$400k houses for sale that are officially designated affordable housing. That actually is cheap for Boulder, but way the hell more than we can afford!)
