Anyone following my apartment saga knows a dramatic rent increase proved a deal breaker so the place is up for rent in August. Now, the plot has thickened as management threatens to bring people in: Though only five months old, huge cracks along wall seams are popping up. My kitchen looks as though it has sustained earthquake damage. The construction guy evaluating the cracks may have to bring in scaffolding to fix the problem, so my small place will get smaller. Seems the entire fifth floor is cracking at the seams. If you don’t hear from me, fear the worst.
