A tub with no shower
If you stock up on enough bath salts and candles, you can consider this a luxury.
How many times have you stared up at your second-floor apartment from the street and thought, “Wow, it would be super easy for someone to climb up this fire escape”? Those bars that make you feel like you live in an actual prison are actually a gift from GOD.
You’ll use your A/C all the way through January because those heating pipes in the kitchen and bathroom are always set to “Hell Fire.” Or you’ll wear thermal underwear through April because your landlord conveniently doesn’t pick up his phone when you call to remind him that, legally, the heat should be on when the outside temperature drops below 55 degrees. But hey, we New Yorkers love seasons! That’s why we don’t live in LA!
