Im trying to find out the real reason that there are no frat or sorority houses in NYC...the way you see them in places like Long Island or New Jersey.
I read your post. You're just the latest in a long line of NewPoster#s to enter the thread and say the same damn thing.

"Everyone" is an idiot. And you keep acting like the locations posted here are mythical just because you don't know about them.

There aren't any sorority houses in St. Louis proper either. Why? Because of a lot of reasons: cost, no strong housing tradition for sororities, location of universities to appropriate real estate, etc.

Brothel law is NOT one of them. Never has been, never will be.

No shit, sherlock. As someone who works in Manhattan you have to know how much housing, particularly OWNING PROPERTY costs there.

Everything boils down to brothel laws. Don't hate.

X: Hey, sorority sisters, you all never call me anymore. You wanna come by my house for dinner and some drinks?
Y: Uh...nah...that crazy brothel law. Cops might think we're getting cash for ass.

I have a running tab. They know what's up.

ETA: Speaking of 'too soon,' is it bad that I nearly made a joke about a cliffhanger?

Too soon for the Segway cliffhanger? Ionknow.

That running tab is how Jerry Springer began his nonpolitical career.

Gosh darnit. We can never have a conversation without bringing race into it.

I really think you're trying to segregate the posters on this site. I won't stand for it.

This kind of behavior will just cause this site to fade to black.

This myth just won't die. My CHAPTER ADVISOR believes it's true and has said it to my chapter on more than one occasion!

LOL.

None of this would've happened if we didn't have brothel laws.

I just had to tell an entire dinner table that this wasn't true.

Some of them still didn't believe me.


Argggg!

Hmmmm. I just came across this interesting situation happening in Evanston, Illinois. Could be there really is such a thing after all?

In Focus: Evanston will enforce 'brothel rule' starting in July, NU administration won't fight it
Northwestern Assistant Dean of Students Betsi Burns advises students to move farther from campus


The Northwestern administration will not ask Evanston to reconsider its "brothel law," a zoning ordinance that will cause hundreds of students to be evicted next year from off-campus housing, a University official told THE DAILY on Monday.


The law, which prevents more than three unrelated people from living together, has not been enforced for years. But on July 1, Evanston will begin enforcing it, which will force landlords to evict some of the hundreds — or thousands — of NU students who live in off-campus houses or apartments with more than two roommates, city officials confirmed to THE DAILY on Monday.
