I just saw this ad on craigslist (via another forum) that shows an apartment for rent for $550 a month near the Bedford L. Of course there's a catch and that is that it's a one room apartment (no kitchen) AND. . . the bathroom is in the same room as the bedroom. So you sleep next to the toilet. It really is literally a one-room apartment.

Happy Hunting

Have you ever seen a smaller apartment or does this take the cake?

As I see it, that's really a bathroom large enough to hold a twin bed. Wow!

That is not an apartment. That is a closet with a toilet and sink in it.

When I first started looking for a place in the city, the first apartment I looked at was a two-room studio in Kingsbridge; each of the two rooms was small enough to spit across. This, however, takes the cake.

I saw a place that small when I was trying to move out of my parents' house in the early 90s. The set up was a little different, though - there was a loft bed with a little table under it on one wall, and an efficiency kitchen along the other wall. A window and a door completed the ends. The bathroom was shared and out in the hall.

Hadn't noticed the lack of windows. That makes it an illegal apartment, doesn't it? My bathroom doesn't have room for a bed (practically not even a hamper), but it does have a speckled window into the airshaft, so I can get rid of the moisture.

I have a decent sized 1 bedroom apartment, but I'm convinced I have the smallest bathroom in NYC. No one can change in my bathroom because they'll be smacking into the door. Luckily, I'm skinny and I've found ways to maneuver around this LOL. There's no sink in the bathroom; I have to use the kitchen sink to brush my teeth and stuff. It doesn't bother me though. Gotta make sacrifices for apartments, like my 1 bedroom for 750 in Astoria. The bathroom may be small, but it works.

I wouldn't be surprised if this listing was some sort of hipster performance art.

If you don't mind me asking, which part of Astoria are you getting an apartment for $750 in?
