The winner of the Daffy’s apartment contest was announced yesterday: Kimberly Dawn Neumann, the only female finalist and a self-described “’girl like Carrie from Sex and the City’,” who reportedly lives in Midtown. As her prize, Neumann will live at One Seventh Avenue South on the corner of Clarkson Street, a $7,000-a-month apartment for which she will be charged just $700 a month. In her entry, Neumann spoke of her wish to live in an apartment in which she could throw cocktail parties for her “hot friends.” Neumann was one of 2,867 contestants who filmed a short video explaining why she wanted to be selected to live in the spot. The winner was not selected based on need, but on creativity of the video submission. Daffy’s selected the top contestants, and their videos were put to a public vote to determine the grand prize winner. Neumann beat out four other finalists, including a young, struggling comedy performer living in a Washington Heights studio and an aspiring gospel singer who wanted a home where he and his wife could start a family.
