Actually, they're methheads. But thanks for asking.

Come on—who does crack these days? If you're going to start a NYC real estate listings website targeting the neighbors of drug addicts (?), at least know your local hot drugs.

Like Nina, my attention went imediately to the "base4space" name, which makes for an unfortunate combination, because "basehead" and "crackhead" are synonymous terms.

Usage reference:
And Dr. Dre said, "Slim Shady, you're a basehead!" (Uh-uh!)
"So why's your face red? Man you wasted!"
-- (From "My Name Is" by Eminem)

And smoking crack is really just freebasing without the final ether step.

So the ad is a bit weird on that level, and now everyone here thinks I'm a crackhead. But I'm not. Really.

Meth may in fact be the new crack, but from the ads I see here, it appears that real estate is the new crack.
