    Not to mention my claustrophobic tendencies.

    Well now, she probably shouldn't have made a video if she was illegal on the lease.

    This time she bought an apartment:

    ...By living in such a small space, Cohen was able to save enough money to buy roomier digs a 490-square-foot apartment in the same neighborhood for under $300,000.

    And let's not even talk about that "loft" bedroom - I can see myself waking up in the middle of the night thinking I was buried alive - YIKES!

    As I mentioned in the Tiny House Thread, if I was single, I'd go tiny, but no smaller than about 500 S.F. - Anything less, and it would feel too clastraphobic to me.
    I'd totally freak out! No way Hosea! Couldn't even visit for more than 15 minutes. And knowing how notorious NY is for roaches, I'd constantly be on the look out for them!

    I agree, that apartment was kinda cute but that bed was just wayyyy too close to the ceiling.

    My dad studied mathematics and I think my mom studied pedagogy but I'm not sure. My dad failed at a phd but my mom got her masters degree.

    OK, now I think I could actually deal with that ^ one, if I absolutely had no other options...

    Although the lack of a "kitchenette" and having to share a bathroom with 3 other people would be quite a challenge for me - Especially since I prefer "home-cooked" food over eating out, and I lurve to take a long, soaking bubble bath a few times a week.

    However, his organization is amazing - As a "certified" neat freak, I admire his closet system and the under-bed storage is brilliant - The big mirror made the space appear larger too.

    The window seemed to provide plenty of light and I noticed an A/C unit, so I guess it doesn't get too "stuffy" up there.

    I wonder how much he pays in rent?

    The lack of my own bathroom let alone any running water, nope, wouldn't even consider it.

    I found an article about him and his rent is $800 but that article also included pics of his prior 96 sq ft apartment which had a better setup, he even had a little kitchenette there:
