For rent


As I was perusing the Vacation & Country Properties classifieds in the New York Times recently -- -- hey, a guy can dream -- -- I ran across a little item that knocked me flat.

Under Rental Properties in Manhattan was the following listing: "Times Square area. New Year's in New York. No Problem! Beautiful, eclectic 1BR located Theater Row, 45th St. btwn 8th/9th Ave. 1.5 blocks from Times Square. New Year's Wkend. Bidding starts @10K."

Somebody is actually asking, and will probably get, at least $6,200 for a weekend rental on their one-bedroom New York apartment. If that doesn't bring the millennium home for you, nothing will.

What gets me is, I live right up the street from there, in a one-bedroom apartment, no less. But am I going to let my flat for a fat fee? Unfortunately, no. See, you won't be able to lure me out of my apartment this New Year's for love nor money nor even pizza. I'll be camped out with lots of bottled water and all the extra cash I can borrow.

But if you want to try to change my mind...well, you know how to get in touch.
