If anyone is looking for an apt in NYC, here's sublet information from Prof. Jennifer Robinson:
A good friend of mine is leaving New York City to start a grad program in Ohio. She is looking to sublet her apartment. She would like to sublet to someone she knows or has a recomendation for, but she's going to put it on Craig's list in a week or so.
Feel free to tell people you know about it. Email me if you want her contact info or pictures (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Here's the info:
