Hmm, my friend has a studio in UES, he pays 3000+ for the studio. The studio is really nice but extremely small.

l looked at one where the bathroom and kitchen sink were one in the same, I thought it was a mis-print on the description so I went to look at. Pretty gross, the bathroom was like in the kitchen. Those most definitely should be separated!

i beg to differ, or actually my real estate agent would beg to differ. she usually uses that as a selling point for those suffering from incontinence.

Hey! That's my place! The bathroom only has the toilet in it. So the kitchen sink is also the bathroom sink. Where's the bath, you may ask . It's in the kitchen!

While this sounds weird to many people, including me at the time, it turned out to be very nice and we didn't mind it at all. (we being my partner and myself)

I have a friend who use to own a very small 1bdrm apartment that he couldn't close the bedroom door bc it would hit the bed. So finally he left it open all the time.

My friend's apartment is so tiny that she needs to undress/dress in the kitchen where she hangs a miorror above the stove. I always enjoy it when she invites me for a meal she's preparing herself.

Ever see "The Blues Brothers" where Jake and Elwood go to their rented room in a men's hotel?

That describes my friend's first Manhattan apt., in 1999, up on E 46th, if I recall. What the heck was it's size? Seven feet by ten or eleven? I don't know. It was only big enough for a bed, two chairs, a table, and a sink. Common toilet and shower down the hall.

It looked like a normal building from the outside, but even my friend called it a half-way house. She spent five months there before getting into something humane off Crescent St in Queens.

That reminds me of the apt. I lived in on E9th Street and 1st Ave. in 2003.
I would take a shower in the kitchen, while my roomate cooked breakfast right next to me.
I liked it cuz i could have interesting conversations with him while taking a shower.
It was rent controlled, like $300 a month, so everything was broken of course. The windows didn't fit right, the ceiling fell down, really cold.
I felt like I was reliving the immigration experience of the 1910's!
It was a great summer though!
