Three times a week, Sasha Stjarne takes a 20-minute walk from her parents’ apartment in the East Village to her job downtown. In nice weather, this feels like a luxury. Other times, it feels like a punishment. “I live with my parents to save money,” Stjarne said. “At 27-years- old, that’s not a cute thing.” Stjarne, a graduate student at Manhattan College, works several shifts a week as a hostess at Doma Na Rohu, a German wine bar in the West Village, earning $11 an hour. She’s trying to save cash to move out after she graduates—and figures the extra money from the hike will help her do that faster. “Who wants to date someone who makes $11 an hour and lives with her parents?” she said. — Emily Ziemski
