Worst Rooms

Just when I start feeling discouraged that I’ll ever find a nice, affordable apartment, I stumble upon Worst Rooms and feel better.

Worst Rooms, a tumblr blog, is a photographic chronicle of dreadful apartments, primarily in New York City.  Each apartment photo is posted along with its description, which–considering the apartment–should win points for creative advertising.
