Listing of the Day: Super Cheap SoBro Artist's Loft

700 E. 134th Street, $1375/month

Granted, it looks like the address of this loft lands it closer to the mostly industrial and still sorta shady Port Morris section of SoBro, but it also appears to be within walking distance of all the other hipster amenities found on Alexander Avenue. Everybody knows that in order to get a good deal, you need to look on the fringes of already revitalized areas, right? Right.

Plus, look at this place... Exposed brick walls, hardwood floors throughout, renovated kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances, and tons of natural light. Basically, this loft would allow you to have the street cred of a struggling artist living on a shoestring budget in SoBro, while actually having an apartment that looks as if it's better suited for the yuppies you've fled to the BoogieDown to escape.

According to this New York Times article, the fact that there's already a working shower may actually turn some artsy folks off this place... But I think most people would agree that a working shower is a pretty sweet thing to have.
