Ask Curbed: Refrigeration Required?

A letter from a close Curbed associate:

Dear Curbed:
I moved here from Denver and have looked at tons of apartment rentals in Silver Lake and Los Feliz, pretty much they are all apartments in privately-owned small buildings. In like 99 percent of the cases, there is a BIG HOLE where the refrigerator is supposed to be. I am told it's BYOF (bring your own refrigerator). Seriously? I am supposed to buy a frickin' refrigerator? Is this some sucky LA thing?
Spoiled Meat

We asked around Curbed HQ and all of us have refrigerators in our rentals, so we're stumped. LA thing?
