We word-crunched the descriptions of some 8,000 apartments advertised on Craigslist, Naked Apartments, and other major NYC rental sites and came up with some interesting results.

For a start, they like consecutive exclamation points!! Most were content with the usual single!, but some 2,000 were excited enough to use two !! 1,639 felt like their listings required 3 !!! There were 300 apartments that only 5 !!!!! could describe. We can only imagine what those six !!!!!!!!!! apartments must be like.
