Wow. I’ve often thought it would be interesting to live in NYC for 6 months just to see what it is like, but I’m not sure I could take it. This is pretty cramped.
I certainly like my space. I’m paying well less than half this amount for 10 times the house. Not to mention the 7 acres of land with it. Plus all my neighbors have plenty of acres which in turn means not very many neighbors or very close neighbors. I can barely hear my one neighbor’s dog bark and that’s if I listen closely.
But to each his own. I certainly don’t get the appeal of the big city and with the internet making working from anywhere more of a reality, I wonder if the big cities will become a thing of the past. I somehow doubt it since liberals like to have their minions close and under their control.

Sixty thousand New Yorkers sign up for ‘tiny house’ development: 265 square foot apartments with retractable beds attract huge wave of interest… but would you pay up to $3,000 a month for this?
- Carmel Place, a development of 55 small apartments, will open early 2016
- More than 60,000 people have applied to live in the New York properties
- Planning officials are proposing to end limit on how small homes can be
More than 60,000 people have applied to live in new apartments the size of garages in Manhattan.
Carmel Place, a new development of 55 properties ranging from 265 to 360 square feet, complete with balconies and tall ceilings, is due to open in New York early next year.
And planning officials are proposing to end a limit on how small apartments can be, opening the door for more micro-apartments that advocates see as affordable adaptations to a growing population of single people.
Critics fear a turn back toward the city’s tenement past and question whether less space will really mean less expensive rents.
Carmel Place marks the city’s first experiment of building super-small dwellings in decades.
A proposed elimination of that minimum would allow smaller studios in buildings with a mix of apartment sizes, but entire micro-unit buildings would continue to need waivers.
‘For us, it was really important to demonstrate how small space could be an enhancement to quality of life,’ said Christopher Bledsoe of Stage 3 Properties, which designed the interiors and amenities at Carmel Place.
Flat walls without columns maximize furniture-arranging options, although some units come furnished with fold-out wizardry, including a desk that expands into a 12-seater table and a retractable bed that pulls down tidily over a love seat.

Liberals like to congregate as many of their own into as little of a space as possible. This makes it possible for them to keep an eye on them and make sure they stay in line.
Plus lots of liberals registered to vote makes for easy voter fraud.
Right now these spots are for the willing, but you can certainly see your ObamaHome assignment looking like this!
