The Special: A Look at Where Students Live: David Eisenhauer

Interviewed & Photographed by Monica Uszerowicz

David Eisenhauer
20 years old, Sophomore at Lang

Neighborhood/Train: South Williamsburg, JMZ
Commute Time: 30 minutes, but an hour if transfers are bad

Rent: $2,000 a month. David pays $650.
Roommates: 2 roommates
Bedroom/bathroom: Loft, 1 bathroom
Signed a Lease?: Yes, but there's no certificate of occupancy.
Average Neighborhood Rent: Not sure

Highlights: "I can do whatever the hell I want—I can swing!" quiet, cheap, better than living in Manhattan. "I really like it a lot."
Drawbacks: Because it's a very Orthodox & Hasidic Jewish neighborhood, lots of places close early on Friday. Also, it's sometimes difficult to get appliances fixed because "the super sucks."
