Remember your first apartment in the city? Was it a hovel, a nightmare, or a sweet memory you're glad is part of your history? For our inaugural episode of the Brick Undergound Podcast, we thought it only right to talk to New Yorkers about the agony and the ecstasy of finding, or living in, their first NYC apartment.
