$99/week Apartment on Upper West Side

As a former New Yorker, I tend to read stories like this with a mix of envy and disgust at the bizarre quirks in NYC landlord-tenant law.

On the other hand, as a current resident of central PA, I'm glad that I live somewhere with a better price per square foot.  There aren't that many places where that price for that place would be a good deal.

As a former New Yorker and tenant attorney in Manhattan Housing Court, I am more offended by the landlord's attempt to have her arrested for invoking her statutory rights. Only the New York Post would call an SRO room (no kitchen, no bathroom) an "apartment". $99/week ($425/ mo.) is not a bad deal, but outrageous?
