A man has taken to Instagram to share what he calls the smallest apartment in NYC. The apartment measures 55ft squared. It is on the market for $1,400 a month.
Youtuber Eric Conover has taken to social media to show off one of the smallest apartments in New York. The apartment measures about 5 metres squared and is on the market for $1,400 a month. This is cheap compared to the average monthly rental price of an apartment in New York, which is around $4,000.
Not everyone thought it was a great deal though. Various Instagram commenters took to their keyboards with fury, writing such comments as: “1400????? nah lol” and “NYC is a scam at this point.” Further shocked comments included: “It is absolutely ridiculous how you could rent a 3 story house with that money where I live” and “Just when you think you’ve seen it all.”
“This sh makes me kinda mad.”
Others said if you’re that desperate, you should “just get a roommate.” Yet others questioned how hygienic your life would be (“definitely not where is the effin shower”). Others said you are better off moving to a less expensive area (“you no need to live in the lower east side . I pay 1100 and I have plenty of more space . And in Bushwick, that is a lot of fun as well”).
“I love NY but no way… you pay that and it’s a SHARED bathroom.”
That being said, some found it a tasty proposition. One Instagram user wrote: “ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT. NYC IS EVERYTHING.” Another said: “Give it to me right now.”
To each their own.

Even paying for a parking spot in New York City now costs more than renting an apartment in some other places in the world…
