    Damn, that building is ugly.

    That actually comes out to just over $700 in today’s dollars. So given that studios at 1500 Mass now go for $1,550, in real terms, prices have risen by just 2.4% per year.

    When I lived on Pennsylvania Ave. in 1967 our apartment rent was $47.50 for a one bedroom. It was really nice too. Big living room, standard small kitchen but with a huge pantry, small dining room, and one big bedroom. Clean as could be too.
