Tiniest Condo in Philly Today Is Indeed “Cozy” But Also Adorable

“Cozy” in a real estate listing generally means “claustrophobic” or “too small for satisfactory habitation.” This studio is currently the tiniest of Philadelphia condos at just 379 square feet. A wedding with 275 guests would generally require a dance floor of about 400 square feet. So, yes, living in this studio would be akin to dancing at a very large wedding.

Somehow, though, the photos convey the sensation of utter adorableness. Is it the powder blue and pink colors that give it a nursery feel? Is it the shipboard-style loft? The angled galley kitchen? And how about that vessel sink? Nice touch. The space, as long as one has a spartan approach to belongings, seems rather lovely.

The listing also notes a real estate classic: “Location! Location! Location! This cozy condo [is] located in the heart of the rejuvenated N. Broad Corridor.” Meaning, “The surrounding neighborhood is home to popular new restaurants by Stephen Starr & Marc Vetri (and more!) and has become a true destination for ‘good eats.'” It’s also close to Clemente sprayground–perfect for this weather.

Finally, there’s an eco hook that makes tiny living even more sustainable that it already is: The communal patio with two grills will have a raised garden where the owner can grow fruits and vegetables.

Asking price: $160,000, after a recent $5,000 price reduction

    I have the number 1 pick, and im trying to package a deal to get the #2 pick…will most likely be Vick and Shady, or Vick and Desean

    • Token

      lol. Can I join this league? Is there money involved? If they are your picks id give you the 1st and 2nd pick for nothing.

      • hnic101nj

        Haha, naw free league and all full. I know i’m being told im crazy for that, but i went with those 2 picks in 2010…won my league pretty easily, and this new offense should get me some decent points….prayerfully..haha

        • Phifer Fuqua

          Dude, no matter how much you like them, blowing a 1st and 2nd round pick on guys you could get five or six rounds later is not a good play

  • gruvi

    Its Gruvi, Sheil and Tim, and I just want you both to know I just came home with my new Galaxy S4 and this site was its very first bookmark. It shows how much I enjoy reading you guys!

    I think Vick was hurt by what happened last year. A lot of it was his fault with the ball control but that line was atrocious and he went harder than anyone the whole year. Big Red and him were blamed primarily for the stink the Eagles provided and it was warranted but a lot of guys got a pass. Vick and Andy didnt quick and many guys did. I think it hurt Vick that he was blamed more and he never complained or quit. I think his competitiveness, and ego and the fact that Kelly believed and him is going to be cause for some awesome numbers this year. I feel really bad for Maclin because he won’t have a chance to be a part of it

  • ReggieKush

    Good move howie, trade an older washed up RB for a young OLB with future potential. Nice..

  • Mr. Wu

    Probably wont make the team but jones was gonna be cut anyhow….not like there wasuch value there

  • Anon

    Don’t we have LBs that can rush the passer but not drop in coverage? Why trade trash for trash? I sort of feel bad for DCs in philly. Our front office is just not going to prioritize defense (see Roseman’s comments on why they didn’t draft more defensive players). Sad for a team with such a strong tradition of defense.

    • Cranky Caucasian

      Why not? What do you have to lose? You have a guy that was going to be cut at a position of strength (RB). Why waste time with him in the next game? Get a different player at a position of weakness (OLB) and see what he can do. Now is the time to do it.

      • Anon

        I agree, we should bring in OLBs, but we need ones that can cover — that’s the cole / graham issue (i guarantee they are better rushers than this guy). Why bring in a guy can’t do that? I’d rather find a scrub 3-4 OLB that can coverage, maybe he can teach the other guys. It’s like the 49ers / Chiefs trash swap.

        BGN had an article about how Eagles modernized the player swap. Have we gotten a decent player via swaps? TBD with Acho…

        • Damien

          Robinson was probably the best we could’ve gotten for Felix Trash Jones…

        • Cranky Caucasian

          I’m assuming this was the best (maybe only) offer they could get. Honestly surprised anyone would trade for him after the summer he had.

  • joethomas215

    Another OLB that can’t drop into coverage, great.

  • Cyrus Robinson

    Both teams probably chuckled to themselves and thought, “thank goodness we got rid of that guy.”

  • aub32

    “One trick pony”

    That’s one more trick than Felix Jones has at this point.

  • aub32

    What were some of you hoping to get. Teams swap players because they are both trash. No one is going to give you gold for handing them a piece of copper. Now we can see more Polk/Tucker, and we have someone to eat up reps this and next week against the 4th stringers.

    • CJ

      idk….how big’s the piece of cooper? that stuff ain’t cheap these days.

  • Johnny Domino

    With their RB injuries, you’d think they could have held up the Stillers for more.

    A wash, basically.

  • Damien

    Loved Robinson at Temple. Good move.

  • PhEaglesPhan

    Good move, didn’t see Jones making an impact on this team like Brown and Polk did. Plus having extra LB’s can do no wrong, hopefully this kat can play somewhat, I’ve personally never watched him play so I don’t know what product we got out of this.

    • philliesfan136

      True, at least he can play on special teams ……. NOT! ……. See Mike Tomlin’s ” one trick pony ” comments. Shesh ! Howie, the king of worthless trades ! I got a trade for you ” Howie ” , go get Jarius Byrd. Since you f#%ked up on NOT drafting Earl Thomas ………… Idiot !!

  • LeClaw

    My thought is hopefully he will help the transition of our OLB and potentially be a descent back up…but I see this trade as a wash on the surface
