Apparently Living Near Tonic East Is a Good Thing?


Apartment brokers do the damndest things: Were currently looking for a one-bedroom apartment downtown (know of anything? E-mail us!) and recently saw a listing that said almost nothing about the apartment but chirped, Dine at Wo Hops! First of all, weve bought at least five T-shirts from Wo Hop (as it's correctly spelled), but were not sure wed pay $2,000 a month for the privilege of dining there ($1,800, maybe). Either way, this apartment complex, Lex Lofts, has taken the whole steps to all your favorite bars and restaurants! thing to another level by putting a giant placard on the sidewalk advertising its proximity to Dos Caminos, Rodeo Bar, and oh yes, our favorite place in the world Tonic East. Thats right: no photos of apartment interiors or anything, just shots of these highly coveted neighborhood institutions. (In actuality, the building in question is located in Curry Hill why not hype Chennai Garden or something? Decent South Indian food is pretty hard to find in this town!) Anyway, if you want to indulge yourself by being stumbling-in-heels distance from Tonic East, you now know where to live. Studios are $2,600 and one-bedrooms are are $3,800, so have daddys checkbook handy, mmkay?
