Is a roommate absolutely out of the question? It would give you a lot more options.

You're not finding any apartment that is safe or convenient for 1K. You're going to need to get a roommate and most likely ditch the pet.

Check out this Youtube video.




That is insane! People actually live like that long term? I like what he did with the space he did have though, very space conscious

I too was impressed by the ingenuity of the 78 square foot guy. He would be a WIZARD if he got to work with 600 square feet.

The video didn't mention what he paid did it?


Is it legal to house someone in 78 square feet, I mean outside of prisons?

Please do not "ditch" the pet. Find a cheaper place in the outer boroughs / not Manhattan or a roomate who is okay with you having a pet. It can be done.
