New Digs (Nearly) Secured

The leasing company finally called me back. They aren’t pro-rating down the one month free their giving so my monthly payment will be more than I expected – but I’ll only be charged for half-rent in September as well as the last month of the lease – so I guess it all evens out. ANYWAY I’m movin’ on up baby! Broadway and Roscoe. Woohoo!

    Oh, and now that I know, if I’m ever in Chicago you can prepare to be stalked :-p

    It’s not stalking if I’m flattered.

    The best part is there was another murder right where I’ll be living. (Previous murder in March and four other murders of gay men before that)

    Great area to be living in. Make sure you carry a big stick and a can of mace babe. Don’t want that purdy face of yours hurt. 🙂

    It’s weird because this is ground zero Boystown and in the middle of Lakeview – super-duper Starbucks & condos yuppie-ville. At least the murders are all unrelated and it seems the most recent one was an acquaintance murder – not a total stranger. If I survived at the highest crime rate train stop for 3 years (Wilson Red Line) I should be just fine here.

    Though it seems like all the street lights in this area are half the wattage of the surrounding hood. Plus there are many mature trees so everything looks darker than other streets.

    That’s why the hustlers hang out on Elaine waiting for their pick up.

    Careful now… I live on Elaine Place and whenever I’m hanging out on the street it means I’m only waiting for the rinse cycle outside the laundry room. No, really. I mean it. Stop all that giggling, you guys.

    Welcome to da ‘hood, Andy.
