Friggin' Manhattan

A friend and I are looking to book a room in Manhattan to save us a trip back to the Jers after a party. The problem with Manhattan is that even when you have friends who live there, their closets are never big enough to share. My friend Vanessa has a cute two bedroom in the East Village, but her living room can barely fit a small couch, let alone a person to sleep on it.

As such, I thought I'd try Priceline for a room. People! I could not get a room for $100 in ANY star range, in any Manhattan neighborhood. Can you believe that shit? Budget Travel recommends looking into the B&Bs, but it's not looking good there either, as they appear to be all booked up between now and for the rest of my life.

I love New York as much as the next gal, but come on, where does Best Western and Comfort Inn get off charging $250 for one night? As you can see, my rage-ahol addiction is in full swing and I clearly need to get my butt to a yoga class.

  1. There's space in my apartment to crash--I'll even let you have the bed. It's big enough to share, depending on how well you know your friend. Or you can just leave her out in the cold to sleep on the streets. I see people doing it all the time, and they seem to like it. Sometimes people walking by will give them free money.
