About 89th And Broke

It all started with a move from Williamsburg to the Upper East Side, where without a laundry room and with very few clean clothes, Laura had to send out her laundry. After paying nearly $30 to get her laundry done – and being charged an additional 50 cents per item that was to be dried on a hanger – Laura thought there had to be something out there that served as a guide for cheap deals and meals around Manhattan.

Venting her frustrations to her co-workers over a dodgeball game, Laura decided to start a blog.  As a result, 89thandbroke.com was born in October 2008, with a focus on restaurant reviews and deals.
