Uninhabitable Conditions New Yorkers Will Actually Pay Thousands to Live In

Trista - November 14, 2022

A slice of heaven for only $700 per month.

This photo might seem very confusing. However, what you are looking at is a 7-foot long and 5-foot wide “apartment” that only has enough space to fit a small bed. And some space to put on your shoes. I’m not sure in what part of New York this is, but you are basically paying to have wood floors and decent walls. Why? Because you won’t have space for anything else in there. Your stuff will either have to be put in boxes underneath your bed or hanging from the ceiling. Getting out of bed is going to be interesting. You just have to take one step, and you’re out of the apartment. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is in the Guinness Book of Records for being the tiniest apartment in New York. But you need to be realistic here, this is better than sleeping in the subway. However, it is more expensive than sleeping in the subway. 


It is like living in a college dorm but smaller.

Here’s how you make the best out of a small space apartment in New York City. This is Axel Webber, and he claims to live in the smallest apartment in NYC (which, judging by the rest of the apartments in this list, is completely wrong), but as you can see, he has almost everything he needs in one tiny space. A decent-sized refrigerator, microwave, a place to put his groceries and plate, a sink, bunk beds, and a closet area. It looks messy since there’s barely any space left, but at least his essentials are there. This seems like another “you need to share your bathroom” situation, which I hope is not as bad as one in a college dorm. 


Surprisingly the nicest apartment on this list.

I think if Cait has actually seen the pictures that are on this list, I don’t think she’ll be so outraged about having a washing machine in the kitchen. All things considered; this is a really nice kitchen that looks spacious. It doesn’t have a shower or toilet close to it. You can freely open the oven and not hit a wall, have a good size fridge and cabinets to put as much dinnerware and kitchenware as you want. If they are going to rent that kitchen separately, they can easily charge $3,000 for all that space. For being the only apartment we have seen with a washing machine, it deserves to be number one.
