Property’s Morning Obsession: Video Profile of a 78-Square-Foot Rental in Manhattan

This is a unbelievable. This young gent, who studies architecture, lives in Manhattan in 78 square feet. Not only that, but he likes it, is good-natured about it, and with some sweat equity and a few trips to Home Depot, has made it pretty darn livable–even a bit enviable. There’s not really any reason that human beings take up so much space, if you think about it.

On the other hand, it’s shocking to hear how much he pays for the place. Only in New York.
