New York architect Luke Clark Tyler understands the sacrifices one has to make to live in the Big Apple. He rents a tiny 78-square-foot studio apartment for $800 a month. Living in a neighborhood where the average rental price per square foot in a studio is $72, Tyler is paying almost twice as much at $123.07.
“I was spending my life in a skyscraper and going underground, to work and then back again,” said Tyler. “I was missing out on anything New York had to offer. If I had to choose spending time in a train or living in a small space, I’d choose a small space.”
The 27-year-old’s Hell’s Kitchen apartment allows him to save money. His goal is to enjoy the city, and not to pay a staggering sum for a larger West Side apartment. However, he did invest in custom furniture that allows him to have extra space and extra storage. He doesn’t mind having to share a bathroom with three other similarly-sized apartment, but there’s one thing he wishes he had — a sink.
