While in NYC, I had the pleasure of teaming up with an awesome UK-based company, SpareRoom, as they take their recent US expansion by storm. The founder is an awesome dude, Rupert Hunt, who’s just hopped his way across the pond, moving from London to Manhattan, and is renting an incredible loft on Bleecker (where these photos were taken).
Rupert is a firm believer that life is more fulfilling when shared with the right people…a sentiment I can certainly get on board with (whether we’re talking about roommates, friends, or any other little life enjoyments). SO, Mr. Hunt decided to launch a campaign to find two roommates to enjoy his new luxury loft with at a rent cost of just $1 a month…fo real.
While the opportunity to score one of those golden spots has sadly come and gone, there’s gonna be more where that came from as they continue to grow!
SpareRoom is an incredible service that’ll help you find the perfect person / people to build a happy home with, whether you are looking to move or have a vacant room you need to fill. I know firsthand how tough this can be in the city…so consider them your saving grace.
If you live in NYC and are on prowl for the right people for a space-share, be sure to swing by one of their weekly Speed Roommating events (yep, kinda like speed dating, but without the awkwardness and pressure). Extra bonus is my dear friend David coordinates them and he’s super fun! So if nothing else you’ll walk away with a rad new buddy at the end of the evening.
