Low real estate prices, a slower pace of life, and glimpses of green earth have been the Lehigh Valley's draw for New Yorkers choosing to make their homes in Pennsylvania. The present day exodus from the north is not new. The first wave of New York and New Jersey expatriates hit the fertile eastern shores of the Keystone State in the mid 1980s. Today the Lehigh Valley boasts about 50 commuter buses that make the hour-and-a-half trip to NYC each week day. A look at the real estate market in the Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton area proves that Pennsy offers a lot more "bang for the buck" than NYC.

RENT YOUR 3x3 foot SQUARE!!! $600
I am looking for 3 people (who will have separate shifts to share the space) to rent out my “space” in my apartment. It’s a 3x3’ foot square which includes a pillow and a bucket. You do not have access to the apartment; however, I will allow you to walk from the door to your ‘area’ in a straight line. You're 'space' will be outlined by NEON Duct-tape on the floor!
The shifts are as follows:
one person from 9am – 5 pm, one person from 5pm – 1 am, and 1am – 9am. No overlapping as an overage charge will be placed on your rent. This is the right kind of deal for a student with a useless major (English. Drama, Pottery) or an actor who has no potential and will probably never make it, but lives off of daddy’s trust fund.
YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO ANY FACILITIES IN MY APARTMENT. FIND YOUR OWN BATHROOM OR SHOWER, THERE IS A BURGER KING ON THE CORNER, AND A BODY SHOP 3 BLOCKS AWAY. YOU SLEEP, WAKE UP, LEAVE!!!!
I DO NOT ALLOW ANY FORM OF COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ME AND MY RENTERS, IF YOU BOTHER ME, I WILL RAISE YOUR RENT. IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS PLEASE CALL MY CELL PHONE AND LEAVE A POLITE VOICE MAIL.
FIRST+LAST + SECURITY DEPOSIT REQUIRED LOOKING FOR SOMEONE VERY LONG TERM -2-3 YEARS
There are about 4 of these ‘squares’ in my apartment, Will go FAST, REPLY ASAP, to MOVE IN ASAP!
