Just kidding. It’s a terrible idea.
We’re talking really, REALLY bad:
NYC has become one city for the wealthy and another for the working class.
Now, skyrocketing rents are pushing families out of communities they’ve lived in for decades.

Here’s the thing.
When you’re RENTING…you’re living in SOMEONE ELSE’S PROPERTY.
That person should be able to charge WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WANT for YOU to live in THEIR house. It’s that simple. If you don’t want to pay them what they want for THEIR property… then you don’t get to live there.
Can’t afford to live there? TOUGH COOKIE.
I can’t afford things I want, too. THAT’S LIFE. LIFE’S TOUGH.

But seriously, think about it. You have an investment property in NYC that you bought in order to rent out knowing you could make enough of a profit to make it worth your time – now freaking MIRANDA from Sex and the City is telling you what you’re allowed to charge?
NO. FREAKING. THANK YOU.
