The Craigslist photo of the bedroom available for sublet is crammed with a saggy full-size bed whose faded maroon comforter could barely accommodate a twin, a scuffed wooden dresser, flimsy torchiere lamp, metal folding table "desk", and a small striped rag rug. This is the "ENORMOUS!!!" bedroom Ray can have for $1,100 a month from July through October in a three-bedroom "PALACE!!!" in Washington Heights. This is where he'll be bringing girls home from the bar for five-minute fucking after he brags that not only does he live alone but that he owns an enormous palace uptown. Sign him up!
