NYC Residents Living Large in Tiny Apartments

In this post you’ll get to tour two tiny apartments in NYC where residents are living large in their small spaces.

The first is a couple who were able to purchase a 220 sq. ft. micro apartment for $160,000 in the city (that’s a good deal in NYC). They converted it into quite the beautiful, luxurious space (as you’ll see).

The second is a woman who rents in the city and although she doesn’t have the most luxurious apartment or furnishings she’s happy because she can easily walk to her favorite places.

According to the video, a 220 sq. ft. apartment as shown here is 10 times smaller than the average new home built in the United States. Wow.

    The use of glass dividers in the bathroom and other places really adds to the illusion of more space and keeps you from feeling closed in. This is very nice!
