Dear Broker

Oh goody! Time for another "Dear Broker"!

Dear Broker,

I'm sorry that when I asked the square footage and you said, "I like to approach it a different way, what are you trying to accomplish?" I sort of ignored your question and just asked my question again using different words ("Do you know the dimensions?") It's just that I didn't quite understand what you were getting at—what cruel irony that I didn't know what YOU were trying to accomplish—but now that I do, I can say with confidence that I'm trying to "accomplish" finding out the square footage or dimensions of the apartment.

Nothing "cozy" please.

RE: "cozy"

A good friend of mine once rented a house that was 16' x 18'. It was basically 3 rooms. A kitchen/dining/living room area, a bathroom and a bedroom. I think there was a closet in there some place. The king size bed filled up most of the bedroom.

I've never lived in NYC so 16'x18' may be palatial for a place, but I don't think I could live in so little space. I was a rural/suburban kid where everyone grew up in a 2000-2500 sft home on one+ acre lots.

Good luck AMR.

Now that totally sounds like a used car salesman or some fancy NY broker talk!

I would have been like, "Dude, I want to know how big the fu***** apartment is! Thanks!"

Good luck Ro Ro!
