[ - ] I went through all the trouble of getting my dog certified as an emotional support animal. Even with paperwork, the restaurants tell me that the dog must be a service animal and not emotional support animal. WTF? Is this like grad school for dogs? Has anyone gone through the process of getting their dog transferred from emotional support status to service dog status? Do the restaurants then let the dog in to sit near your table? Are there schools on the UES that anyone would recommend? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] So back to my real estate question about the 850K one bedroom. My payment will be 5000 per month and my rent is now 5000 per month. I am not looking necessarily for it to appreciate but I also dont love the idea of 60000 per year on rent which in 4 years will be 240K. So even if I sell for exactly 850K in 4 years, isn't it better to break even than throw away a quarter of a million dollars in rent. Maintenance is 1500 per month so that is money wasted too. Help me work this out. 21 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

So your total nut is 1500 plus 5000 for the coop, or 5000 for the rental. Are they comparable? And expect the maintenance go up (although not the mortgage, if fixed interest). I think you need to find a cheaper rental. [ Reply | More ]

Why would you buy for 4 years? It will take a few months to close and a few to close again when you sell. Odds are this will be inconvenient on one end if not both and you’ll incur additional housing costs. Moving is a pain and will cost you $. There are other costs too, like insurance, renovations, repairs that you don’t have as a renter. The first 4 years of a mortgage you’ll pay something like 7% of the principal, so this is all the equity you’ll accrue. There will also be tax benefits, yes, but it will cost you about 10% to sell. Sounds like a pain if you’re not looking to stay longer. [ Reply | More ]

The lottery is predatory. The people you see in line to buy tickets are the people who can least afford to spend that money. That said, I have on occasion purchased annual tickets because I have the money to spare, and I like the idea of being passively enrolled in every drawing while not having to check tickets. I do understand, though, that basically I'm paying for a term fantasy and the excitement of a "chance." I never consider that it will actually pan out. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I can't help but believe that actresses who slept with Harvey Weinstein knew exactly what they were doing. The fact that some female actresses did not like the price of success does not necessarily mean that Weinstein committed a crime. When you have a prominent female role to fill in a movie and there are dozens of qualified actresses available, how do you pick? 33 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
