I’m interviewing for a tech exit and one of the panel interviewers is an ex-Deloitte SM that is basically best friends with the partner I work under frequently.

Long Island City 1b subletting for 6 months (late Mar - late Sep). We bought a house and are looking to sublet our apartment. Lease was signed in 2020 and the building is rent stabilized, so you’ll be able to take advantage of the Covid discount and continue to if you decide to renew. It is a one bedroom in Linc, a luxury building with a full package of amenities. This unit has an amazing Manhattan skyline view. rent is 3300, which is significantly lower than the comparable market price of 3800
