Finding a roommate or someone to share a practice space with can be a veritable minefield filled with awkward moments, money mix-ups, and sociopaths. New York likes to pride itself on our weirdo population, but sometimes you just want someone who is cool and pays the rent on time. As someone who has moved at least 6 times in my 4 year period living in this city, I know what it means to find a good cohabiter. Whether you’re looking for a subletter or a fellow artist to share a studio space, swing by Alligator Lounge tonight for their â€œRoommates Wantedâ€ meet-up tonight.
This favorite bastion of free pizza and beer will serve as the perfect meet and greet spot for potential roomies. No longer do you have to rely on Facebook stalking or extensive google searches to dig up some background info on perfect strangers. Expect a casual environment of like-minded people looking to shack up and save some money. So whether you’re new to the neighborhood or can’t afford extra space for your giant paper mache installations, there’s bound to be a person with the same needs as you. Single white females need not apply.
