Rent Check

The hot new way for landlords to charge more for rent is to show a little brick: "You may find a brick column in an otherwise modern kitchen, as seen in a recently listed two-bedroom on Boston's Mission Hill. ... Shawn Bhandari, 34, who shares a $4,000-a-month apartment with three roommates in Brooklyn ... has another word for the effect produced by the exposed brick chimney in his bedroom: 'Not to be too cheesy, but it gives the room an earthy feel.'"
