Two artsy types, model Leila Abdoulaye and designer Daniel Lundby, who live in the historic Clocktower building in Port Morris are highlighted in the piece.
Ms. Abdoulaye, who pays $700 per month for her room in an apartment she shares "with a rotating stream of models", describes her life in the Bronx by saying:
“It’s the quality of the place, the price of the apartment, and the social life,” Ms. Abdoulaye says. “It’s a nice place to live. A happy place to live.” [NY Times]
Mr. Lundby says he has "three times the space for the same price" as when he was renting on the Upper East Side.
