houses prices where we live are unfathomable. to own in a decent neighborhood that's close to work, the mortgage is roughly double the rent of a one bedroom. quadruple if you have a roommate. bearing in mind that the chic neighborhoods of today were the urban assholes of five years ago, it's been suggested that we buy a dump on the cheap in a crappy area, fix it up and wait for the slime of gentrification to ooze our way. I've never been a gambler, so I have a better idea: we're going to start a crime wave in fishtown.
