    New York City Designer Closets

    .....

    $2400 a month?

    no wonder some people said $1200 a month was a steal


    Tiny Living – Could You Live In A 250 Square Foot House?
    by Yesha Callahan






    “Today there are about 1.8 million one – and two-person households in the city, but there are only about 1 million studio and one-bedroom apartments. You notice the mismatch,” is what NYC Mayor Bloomberg said in July as he announced a competition for designing a building dominated by micro-studios. Tiny living is a trend that has been catching more attention as people follow the concept “less is more”, when it comes to their living environments.



    Apartments and houses under 250 square feet have long existed in countries such as Japan and China, but now they’re becoming even more popular in the United States.


    adAPT NYC, is a competition which could create a new housing model for New York City. The goal is to show that small doesn’t necessarily mean cramped or unlivable. The objective is to design an apartment no larger than 300 square feet, and it has to include a bathroom with a tub, a kitchen and windows that look out on air and not shafts. The city is providing the space on East 27th Street and the winner will be announced later this year.


    Cities like San Francisco and Boston are already adapting to the “tiny living” trend. Boston is already in the process of building micro-studios that are smaller than 450 square feet, to accommodate the mayor’s request.


    North Carolina resident Ryan Mitchell, of The Tiny Life, is a long time advocate of smaller living spaces. His website offers tips on how to live in 100 to 200 square feet. “I realize that is an extreme,” said Mitchell told the LA Times. Although he currently lives in a regular sized house, he’s saving to build a tiny home of 130 square feet on two levels. “I don’t expect and I don’t think the majority of us will get to a point where we’re living in that type of dwelling,” Mitchell said. “But I think it’s important to show there’s an alternative to McMansions.”



    But don’t assume tiny living is easy on the pockets. In New York city Prudential Douglas Elliman, showed off a 275-square-foot studio for $339,000. At $2,400 a month for rent, the price is still a hefty pill to swallow. Because these developments are modernized, the prices all depend on the area you’re living in, but they still may not be affordable for the average middle-income person.




    Could you see yourself living in less than 300 square feet?
    Unfortunately, stupidity and ignorance can be entertaining.

    250 sq. ft?!! This is ridiculous. I want nothing to do with an apartment under 750sq.ft for me alone.

    These people insane yes. $2400 is mortgage payment for a house over 2000 sq.ft

    is this another excuse to hate on nyc
    you ALL AGREE with my opinion, which is why NONE of you ever EFFECTIVELY DISPUTE IT

    you ONLY have faith in the WOMEN'S ability to ELEVATE which is why you only FOCUS ON WOMEN...you ALL have long given up on Black men

    you just don't have the BALLS to OVERTLY AGREE....rather just do it INDIRECTLY

    weak men only can deal with weaker women

    in the presence of strength you diminish...

    Nope.

    They have these kind of living spaces in places like Japan and China already. Been seeing them highlighted on travel channel for years now. I think there is/was somthing similar in San fran too, which is popular among asians.

    I personally cannot see myself paying that much for anything other than a house.

    to make the American suburbs sustainable is going to take a massive restructuring that most likely will be beyond the means of any government or private entity, this society was literally built around the notion that oil will be cheap and will be flowing forever.
