The “Not-So-Happy” Meal
It’s perfectly common to have an apartment that’s located above any kind of retail establishment, especially in crowded metropolitan areas. In NYC in particular, this seems to be pretty common. However, an issue arises when that first-floor retail place doesn’t have that great of a reputation. These roommates learned that lesson the hard way.
We don’t always consider what could be some of the issues living above a restaurant, but perhaps we should start considering them from now on. Imagine having a literal earthquake going off in your room at all hours of the day, every day. You could say that this shook that roommate to the core! Bad puns aside, this is why you don’t ever get an apartment above a McDonald’s. Chances are, you won’t be loving it!
