Looking for a cleaning service / person and also estimate on how much to pay. Handy gave me a quote for $100/cleaning for a studio which seems high compared to other cities I’ve lived in, but I’m not sure what the rates are in NY

I pay 120 + tip if it's a sporadic clean. Usually takes her 5-6 hours and she does a fantastic job. I have a 1 bedroom. If you're in the market, you should check out "si se puede." It's a women's co-op and the cleaner keeps all of the money



Depends on what kind of cleaning (deep, carpet, weekly, etc). I pay my person $35/hr, 2 hrs per visit, 2 visits/wk.

I pay $110 for a standard cleaning, bi-weekly.

Check out “That Manhattan Luxury” on Facebook. Tiffani is super thorough and was $25/hr with 3 hr minimum (at least when I used her last pre covid).

I pay $150 per visit (~4 hours). For comparison, I’ve relocated to another state during COVID and have been paying $90 per visit (~3 hours).

Has anyone used ByNext? Also, do I need to have a vacuum/my own cleaning products or do they bring it with them?

I pay $100 + tip = $120 total. They charge by time not by size of space. I’ve had only one room deep-cleaned a few times (eg bathroom twice a year deep clean, kitchen twice a year deep clean). Others times, I’ve had it spread out over four rooms.

I pay $100 for a 1-bed — seems like a standard rate. I wouldn’t recommend using Handy though

I signed a lease in a rent stabilized apartment that indicates Legal rent: $2200. Preferential rent: $1800. My question is that when I renew my lease in a year, can the landlord jack up my rent to $2200? Or just $1800 with a small annual increase?

Went on a date that was around the corner from the guy’s apartment. We drank a good amount and I was a bit tipsy. It was a little past midnight and he walks home and leaves me on Canal Street.

Yes, I said I would get a cab but it’s also after midnight, freezing cold, I’m tipsy, in heels, etc.

I don’t care if I split a bill but for god’s sake, ensure your date gets in a car home. Even if you aren’t calling her again or whatever, wait for the freaking cab with them.

End rant.
