Hey, remember when the news dropped about NYC’s first micro-apartments? We laughed, we cried at the idea that we couldn’t even afford those, we rolled out eyes when people brought up Japan’s capsule hotels. Well, you can get ready for that all over again, because the city loved the reaction it caused so much that they have plans for even more tiny apartments.
The Observer caught up with the commissioner of the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, Matthew Wambua, who told them that yes, the city is looking over more pitches for housing that we can only assume will branded “luxury” by hungry hungry brokers. No word on where the skinny jeans of apartments will go, but since they start at $940/month and are considered affordable, we’re hoping against hope they stay on Manhattan’s side of the East River.
