If it turns out the free kayaking is more than 1/2 mile away, I am going to be pissed.

I'M SEEKING A MATURE, DRAMA FREE WOMAN TO SHARE MY APARTMENT WITH ME. PLEASE READ THIS AD IN ITS ENTIRETY AND ONLY RESPOND IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THIS UNIQUE SHARE. First, let's face the facts: The politicians tell us we're in a deep "Recession" but the truth is we're in a Depression -- and it's only going to get worse! So let's help each other during these hard financial times. That said, I have a huge 1,600 sf apartment in the exclusive West Village ("The Gold Coast"), overlooking the Hudson River and and riverside parks where one can jog, bicycle or simply walk along the river's edge for miles. Amenities include roof deck with spectacular views of NYC and the Hudson River, full-service laundry in the basement, 24 hour doorman, AC, Cable TV and high-speed internet connection. There's free kayaking about 1/2 mile from my building during the summer months. My apartment's market rent is $4,200. per month. Your share of the rent is only $275. including all utilities. We will share the apartment including the master bedroom. True, this is an unusual situation, but it's necessitated by the fact that I have a second bedroom which is presently occupied by a female friend. Would you like to share a great apartment and a very comfortable Queen-size bed with a person who is respectful and sensitive to your needs? Send me a short message and a recent picture(s) of yourself. I've included a picture of myself in the lower right corner of this ad. I believe "A picture is worth a thousand words." NO PICTURE, NO RESPONSE. Contact: email@example.com
