SOME people complain about the size of their closets, but what if your whole house was the size of one closet?
One New York City resident claimed he was living in the “smallest apartment in New York” and showed his followers what it’s like inside.
“Whatever your expectations are, lower them,” the man, named AJ Webber, said on TikTok videotapes shared with his 500,000 followers before opening the door to his website.
“As soon as we walked in the door, we had the sink,” AJ said as he showed off a one-sink vanity with storage underneath.
“Right next to the sink has a convenient location: the kitchen.”
He joked that his pantry, which appears to be a medium-sized kitchen cabinet without a door, was “completely stocked”.
In the cupboard there are some canned and bagged goods as well as peanut butter.
There is a plate and a bowl on the top shelf.
Underneath the cabinet is a microwave and a refrigerator.
Next, AJ shows off his “living quarters,” which consist of a bunk bed with the bottom mattress pad directly on the floor.
He then lights what appears to be his only ornament: a lava lamp.
“That’s what this place lacks,” he joked.
Then AJ showed him a walk-in closet and finally his keyboard.
There don’t seem to be any toilets, showers or large appliances, such as ovens, in AJ’s apartment.
Looks like his apartment building has shared bathrooms to make up for this.
Member TikTokers have been blown away by the barren living situation, with many claiming it’s smaller than what they lived in college.
“This is half a dorm room. Are you okay?” one person commented.
“Where’s the bathroom bestie,” another asked.
A third claimed they had lowered their expectations as instructed and were still disappointed.
“Whatever you are paying is too much,” argued another user.
AJ does not disclose its rent information, but a 2018 article from West Side Rag reported a 68-square-foot apartment with a shared bathroom that costs $950 a month, which could give followers an idea of what AJ can pay.
It’s also not clear where in New York City the location of the apartment, which is another factor that determines its price.
Based on RentCafe, median rents for apartments in NYC boroughs (excluding Staten Island) range from $1,628 to $4,140.
Of course, rents can run into the tens of thousands of dollars a month for prime city real estate.
Here’s an inside look New York City’s “Most Expensive Apartment” overlooks Central Park and is listed for a fantastic $40 million.
