In the classifieds of New York magazine, a place we once only went to for full body massages and Mature Mates of Means matchmaking services, we came across a personal ad from an Upper West Side family in search of a "philanthropic, wealthy person who would not miss a million bucks" to give them said million dollars to buy a place. Otherwise, they might have to move to Westchester or, even worse, Westport! See for yourself.
"WE NEED HELP BUYING AN APARTMENT on the UWS, 3bd 2 bath. YOU are a philanthropic, wealthy person who would not miss a million bucks and would be interested in donating (or even investing) in a highly targeted manner: to my family. WE are a wonderful, hard working middle class family who contributes to our UWS community, is entrenched, happy and desperately wants to remain on the UWS (lest the city lose yet another wonderful family to the burbs). We can afford 600-700K, so you see the predicament. Can you help us??" PlsHelpUsBuyAnApt@gmail.com
Are you kidding me??? I mean seriously!! They can afford $600-$700K and they are crying poor? I also love how they keep saying how wonderful they are, a little modest are we? This is beyond ridiculous.
