We're already discussing Adams Morgan today but the places on that list are far too spacious. Why not look at something in that general vicinity that is just slightly bigger than a breadbox at the corner of Kalorama and 19th. A tipster sends word of this Craigslist posting for a $500/month rental that advertises itself as a one bedroom. But it is in actual fact the closet area of a studio. Sadder still is that you will share the studio with a 40 year old woman. The alcove, because we just can't call this a room, is in direct path of the bathroom so expect her to be all up in your business while you overhear hers. We've excerpted her explanation, but the full text of the ad is after the jump.
