Last year, Nolan Myerson resigned his longtime position on the Village of Roslyn board of trustees.
Now Nolan wants to move to Manhattan. Not only that, he is a finalist for The Daffy’s Apartment contest, one that allows the very lucky winner the opportunity to live in a luxury apartment for only $700 a month, rather than the $7,000 month retail value.
This summer, Daffy’s, a fashion retailer in the tri-state area, held auditions offering consumers the chance to win a rental lease for a fully furnished luxury apartment at One 7th Avenue South in Manhattan’s West Village.
The Daffy’s Apartment is managed by REcap Partners and has a suggested rental price of $7,000 per month, but the contest winner will receive an amazing Daffy’s discount by paying, as noted, a mere $700 per month.
After receiving 2,867 in-store video submissions, Daffy’s has chosen five finalists who will now be voted on by the public at Daffys.com from Sept. 7 through Sept. 16.
“Daffy’s has stayed true to the tradition of providing high value, high quality and unique fashions at dramatically low prices. This contest brings our brand message to life in an impactful way and will greatly change the life of one of our finalists,” said Will Bracker, Daffy’s director of marketing. “After receiving an astonishing 2,867 video auditions, we chose five finalists who all clearly demonstrated why they deserve the luxury apartment in clever and creative ways. We are on the edge of our seat to see who will ultimately win the grand prize and move in to ‘The Daffy’s Apartment.’”
For his audition, Nolan, who is a trader, rapped to his own beat recanting that “I got a house in Long Island, but I don’t really own it. The bank’s got the mortgage and I just got a donut. The kids are out of college now and back to bother me. They are taking over every TV.”
The Myersons, according to their entry, have always dreamed of living in Manhattan and after 37 years of marriage, Nolan sees the apartment as a great new start to their lives as empty nesters.
Nolan is in competition with four other applicants, who live in various parts of the metropolitan area.
