The Worst Room, a homeless man's new blog on Tumblr, highlights some of the most dismal craigslist postings in New York's notoriously dismal housing market. Yahoo! Homes has selected some of the worst of them here, and has paired them up with quotes from and links to the craigslist postings (as well as to the captions on The Worst Room). None of the quotes have been edited for spelling, grammar, etc.
