Mike Bloomberg, Mayor of the land of tiny shitty apartments, has decided to test out 275-300 square foot studio apartments. If, like me, you have no concept of just how small that is, check out this video, which features an impossibly cluttered studio of that size.
Bloomberg says that there’s a demand for the “micro-units” and so, he’s launched a design contest in which the winner will design a building housing 80 units, 20% of which will be reserved for low income residents. The remainder will rent for below market value of $2000 per month. Far below, one hopes.
Somebody tell Gary Chang that New York needs him.
