A cornucopia of cheap produce and surprisingly accidentally vegan products. (Not everything there is vegan, but a lot of things you would never expect are.)
And the best hummus in the world.
I highly recommend living within walking distance, so it's easier to satisfy those 3 in the morning cravings.
I love Rossman's! I'm not sure I'd love walking there at 3am though, what with all the porn and liquor stores and all.
I think listings mention the "hot water", heat and gas only to sound like you're getting something extra, which more often than not you are not. Who knows, there is probably some miserable apartment out there than doesn't include hot water and is trapped somewhere in 1908.
I know this was mentioned a long while, but believe it or not we live in 1908 and our monthly rent does include heat, but not hot water, which seemed crazy to me too, but the hot water bill is pretty nominal so it's not a big deal.
So yeah, I afford it by living with my boyfriend in a studio apartment and having to pay $20 extra per month for hot water. Our place is also unusually cheap because it's sort of an absentee landlord situation, which means the building is a bit dumpy and things don't get fixed quickly (or ever), but the rent doesn't go up. If you can find a landlord that doesn't understand the internet (or can't be bothered with it) you're probably going to get a better deal.
