So my friend Craig and I spent much of the last week scrambling around searching for apartments in Norwalk.
Since $COMPANY is moving there later this summer, and we're both tired of paying insane amounts of rent in our one bedroom apartments, we figured now would be a good time to find someplace close to the new office with enough room for two geeks and a truly absurd collection of computers.
After a lot of procrastination followed by a few days of actually looking, we found our new apartment.
It's half of a duplex on a dead end street between railroad tracks and the highway, directly adjacent to a cemetery!
How can you go wrong with a place like that? ;-)
Actually, the place is pretty nice. Other than the lack of AC it's better than the other places we looked at. There seems to be sufficient room for all our crap, it's within walking distance of the new office, my half of the rent will come out to only slightly more than half of what I'm currently paying, and the neighborhood seems decent.
Our lease starts mid-may, so if you're in the area and feel like helping us move in return for free pizza and beer drop me an email or something.
