Living in 90 Square Feet

Felice Cohen lives in a Manhattan "microstudio" that measures 12' x7'. My home office on the back porch is twice that! She pays $700 a month rent and considers it a bargain. That's because the average apartment rent in this Upper West Side neighborhood is $3,600. Link -via Metafilter

$700 for renting that li'l amount of space. Ridiculous! Felice, if UWS and living alone isnt that important - ull get a lot of decent space sharing an apt with 2 other ppl in say LES at that rent.
And, If u can pay $1100ish you'll get a 1BR converted in 2 in Midtown high rise.. i lived in one at that price 6 months ago. Why pay THAT much for such little amt of space is beyond me!!!

Wow! Kudos to her. I know I couldn't do it, but she seems to make it work for her. It helps to be organized, but I would feel very claustrophobic in that space.
