Looking for a small cozy room/studio in manhattan...hard to find any this size advertised online. Should I contact a broker? Would they have them?...I've seen videos of people living in them.

any help with where to go to find these would be nice.

Thanks!!!

I had a friend who lived in a 250sqf apt on midtown east.
his rent was about $1300
he could barely fit a small bed. the L/L provided a stove that was combined with a fridge.

it's very tough to live like that, unless you won't spend much time in it and you're using the apt exclusively for sleeping purposes.

I don't understand why you are narrowing your search to apartments that small? Why limit the search? If you end up in something that small, so be it, but just look more in your price range/ target neighborhoods rather than sq footage..

Two hundred square feet? All the mice'll be hunchbacked! You'll have to step in to the hallway to tie your shoes!

I'd look at other boroughs if I were you.

ARE YOU KIDDING.

WHY NOT JUST RENT a closet in a friends house.

It's kinda sad that someone is setting out to find an apartment that small. (no offense to you OP -- you're just looking for a cheap place).

I am beginning to fear that developers will realize how much more money they can make by renting micro-apartments and sleeping pods instead of traditional full sized units.

You won't even be able to move. I wouldn't rent a place that little.

Sleeping pods?

already being used in high density places like Tokyo.

Capsule hotel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Definitely not recommended for claustrophobic people.
