This Is What Life Inside A Tiny 100-Square-Foot NYC Apartment Is Like (Video)
New York in general and Manhattan specifically are known for their overpriced, undersized apartments; if you live in New York, you're going to be overpaying, and that's just the way it is.
But, this apartment on the Upper West Side is just ridiculous. The studio, located steps from the Lincoln Center on the Upper West Side, is just 100 square feet and does not have a kitchen.
It still costs $1,100 per month.
Recently, the laughably small place got a new tenant: Grayson Altenberg, a Wisconsin transplant.
Altenberg recently spoke with The Village Voice about his notorious new digs, insisting, despite the fact it can't even fit a chair, he enjoys the apartment.
He told The Village Voice,
I do miss having my big kitchen. But I also have a very, very giant kitchen at Lincoln Center. My living room is Central Park.
According to Daily Mail, since 2011, no single tenant stayed in the minuscule space for more than two years.
It's surprising anyone even stays that long. You can easily get a room in an apartment for less than $1,000 per month and still have comforts like a stove -- or a window. But then, living with someone else is kind of a drag.
Take a look at the claustrophobic apartment in the video, and for all you NYC hopefuls out there, consider Brooklyn.
