Simple life Manhattan: a 90-square-foot microstudio

By choosing a studio that measures just 12 feet by 7 feet, Felice Cohen can afford to live in Manhattan’s Upper West Side where apartments rent for an average of $3,600 per month. She pays just over $700 for her 90-square-foot microstudio.

Granted, she had a bit of a panic attack the first night when she woke up in the loft bed with the ceiling 23 inches from her face. But she’s grown accustomed to the small space & now when she goes back to her childhood home she misses its coziness.

“I think a lot of people have a lot of space that they’re not using. I grew up in a place where my bedroom was 17 feet by 17 feet with two walk-in closets that combined where almost the size of this apartment that when I go home now I go in the closet just to feel like I’m back in New York.”

In this video, Felice shows us her tiny kitchen (toaster oven, hot pot & mini fridge), the toilet where she bumps her knee & her now-cozy lofted bed.
