Housing needed 

Hi All, I am looking for a place to live starting July 1st. Please send me a private message if you have any leads! Here’s what I have posted in the Facebook housing groups if you want to share with others. Thank you!

I’m looking for long-term housing in or close to Bushwick, 4-5 miles from the LES. Move in date July 1, 2015
I’m realistically looking for a share with one or two other people, I can pay $800 max for a share. I have quite a lot of costumes for my work so I need a larger room that I can store them in. I would like a room with lots of light, large enough to stretch and or do crafts/sewing. In my dream world I would find a studio to live alone in for $800-$1000, hey a girl can dream right?

About me :I am 34 years old, a professional performer working in the burlesque and performance art industry since 2004. I like home to be a quiet sanctuary, no drama, and a place where creativity can thrive (I make a lot of my own costumes and rehearse at home during the day.) I’m sex positive, bisexual, and non-monogamous. I am usually home during the day and I perform at night, arriving home 2-5am some nights. I travel quite a bit for work and I like to host traveling performers from time to time.

Other logistics: I would like to be 5 blocks max from a train. I ride a bike, so a place to park my bike inside the building would also be ideal. No indoor tobacco smokers, no hard drugs, I’m not opposed to 420 on occasion.

If you are interested in me as a housemate or have any leads, please send me an email at darlinda@gmail.com Thank you!
