Do you live within 3 blocks of Union Square?
I'm looking for a place near Union Sqaure where I can shower, store a small bag of clothes, and occasionally watch TV.

I moved to Brooklyn 6 months ago. Since then, I burn an extra an average $80 and 25 hours a month to run home to shower/change and head back to Manhattan to meet friends.

I will offer you $100/mo to have access to your apartment. I would like a key and would never visit past 10pm, unless you invited me to stay later (like if, for example, there was 2-hour episode of Lost on TV).

Please send pics of your showerhead to zklein at gmail.

Thx

UPDATE: I found a match. Will post pics of the shower as soon as I get permission.

Zach - You should consider joining NYSports Club. For $75/month you have access to a network of showers across the city. Why limit yourself to Union Sq?

paul's right - join a gym.

The gym idea is a good one!

(although I pay $93 a month for NYSC - but that is for access to ALL their gyms). Also, you can rent a locker there. Doesn't really solve to TV issue, though.

Do you really think your offer is worth it to anyone who has an apartment in that neighborhood? Let's see, you will offset someone's rent by about 3% in exchange for the right to crash out whenever you want to. Great deal.

Zach,

I will offer to pay the first month's "rent" for this if you give me the film and television rights to the story. Seriously.

Will you chip in for maid service or clean out the person's shower?

Zach said...
Sure, I'll chip in for a maid, as well as keep the shower stocked with shampoo and conditioner of your choice.

NYSC ftw. This is seriously 90% of the reason I have a membership.

On another note, drinks in the spirit of Fort Wayne! I know just about zero people in this city of ten million, so I will never turn down an offer like that. Keep in touch.

Stay at www.achievehousing.com -- whenever you need a place Zach. More expensive but you'll have your own place to shower :)

Just don't shower. Or better yet move out of williamsburg which will probably save yourself like a thousand bucks a month.

You can crash at my pad in Denver any time. I hear that's nowhere near NY though.

Hi, I'm Zach. I grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana and graduated from Wake Forest. After college, I moved to Manhattan to get serious about a company I ran with friends. We sold it to Barry Diller's InterActiveCorp in 2006. I just wrapped up with a project I co-founded called Vimeo and left CV to focus on being a twenty-five year old.

I have another blog called Copy and Taste, where I post about learning to cook.

I live in Brooklyn now.
