I posted a link to a somewhat amusing slide show of some pathetic rooms in NYC, and said that I personally wouldn't want to live there. It was kind of meant to be funny, and NOT an indictment of NYC

I thought this was funny - some people will try to make a buck & they may find takers! There are often a few tongue-in-cheek ads on the Best of Craig's List* for horrific rentals, but what's funny about the OP is that these folks were being serious.

Also, you could very well have posted a slideshow of crappy rentals offered in say, Tennessee or Alabama where someone is trying to rent out a toolshed or a (barely) converted chicken coop. Yeah, I've seen real ads for the chicken house (you could practically smell the chickensh*t from the photo) but I certainly don't believe that all rentals in Alabama are that awful!
