Today’s NYT has a nifty picture spread (all artfully manipulated by ace photographer Edgar Martins, no doubt) of homes for sale priced at $89,000. One in Springfield, Mass looks ripe for bargaining but there’s a cottage in the Black Hills that I would love to have. Taxes $120 a year, flyfishing nearby and somewhere up the road in Montana (South Dakato’s about the size of Rhode Island, right?) is the Little Bighorn and Custer’s massacree. How cool.
Of course, you might just stick around here – the $89,000 threshold may be coming soon.
