Brooklyn Students Live In Tents

Two NYU grads and a pal who love living in the Big Apple but don’t want to pay its high rents are happy campers — each shells out $100 a month to pitch a tent in a friend’s Brooklyn back yard.

“We’re trying to make ends meet at a time when it’s hard to make ends meet,” said Louis Frank, 22, who set up his $169 waterproof, 4½-foot-by-9-foot tent on a wooden plank in the fenced-in Bushwick back yard on June 1.

The three one-person tents went up behind an apartment building that has six units. The friend occupies a duplex apartment with five others, said Frank. The two-bedroom apartment rents for $2,250 and has one shower, said the Web magazine Brokelyn.com, which first reported on the three campers in an article titled “Bushwick Summer Rental: a $100 Tent.”

The $100 fee entitles the three guys to kitchen and bathroom privileges.
