Weird question time:

I am starting a job in NYC on monday and was supposed to moving to my new place on Friday. Things got F***ed up and now I have no place to stay for the first week of my job. I need a spot in the city where I can stay till next saterday.

I really dont want to be in a hotel. I would even be willing to fork up some cash. Would prefer a full room but doesnt need to be that way.

email me if you or someone you know can help!!!! [email protected]

You could try a hostel. I've had decent experiences at Gershwin Hostel (212-545-8000, 7 east 27th street, $30 per night).

I duno find a dumpster move it a couple of blocks away and put up a tent over the top. This would keep you dry and if you can get ahold of a good sleeping bag will be fairly warm as well. Usualy the bums will share a fire barel with you if you need it they also know where to get free food every day.

Why not just stay at work? They've got a bathroom, probably a kitchenette and vending machine somewhere in the building, plus an internet connection. What more do you need? Just curl up under your desk to sleep. Either a) someone there takes pity on you and offers you a place to stay or b) your new manager commends you for working such long hours right off the bat. Sounds like a win-win situation to me.

Maybe this belongs over in the "embarrassing true confessions" department ...

The tough part about cubicle camping is getting up very early in the morning (like 6:30 am to 7:00 am). If your office has a few people who work late at night, plus a few other people who come in at 7:30 am, then it's tough to carve out enough time to be rested the next morning.

It works pretty good on Friday night and Saturday night, though.

You also have to make sure that you have every thing you need. I ran out of dental floss once, until I remembered the emergency supply that I carry in my wallet.

Did I mention that cubicle camping is gonna draw a lot of weird looks from the people around you? Although you can probably get away with it in NYC. Nothing phases a New Yorker.

Ah, darn, Greycat, there goes my gold star for spelling. And I do know how to spell "faze".

Wired_Apple_Geek, where did you end up sleeping?
