His New York Apartment Is So Small It’s Practically A Jail Cell, And His “Tour” Of It Will….

Whether it’s the Central Park, Wall Street, or Times Square, you’re always within a cab or subway ride of some of the United States’ most famous landmarks.

But nothing comes for free in life, and it’s basically impossible to find affordable housing if you’re not making at least six figures in New York City, especially on the island of Manhattan where all the action is.

Even studio apartments in Manhattan can run you between $2,000-$3,000 per month if you don’t want to deal with the inconvenience of having a roommate.

We’re sure you’ve heard of the astronomical rent prices for small apartments in New York City with some even being called matchboxes. While the term may be an exaggeration for most, it isn’t for Luke Clark Tyler who lives happily in a 78-square-foot apartment in the Manhattan neighborhood known as Hell’s Kitchen.

Designer Tyler takes us on a short guided tour of his tiny apartment. Tyler lives and works in the apartment while forgoing such luxuries as a bathroom and kitchen. The video was produced by SPACEStv.

How on earth does he manage to live in such a small space? The trick is to make use of almost every single bit of space possible, including a Murphy bed/couch, a desk that doubles as a refrigerator, and a closet that contains your entire life including a microwave!

The space includes a shared bathroom, which is the only downfall for Tyler. He doesn’t seem to mind living in such confined quarters. He has, however, installed a mirror on the wall above his desk for when he is working from home to give the space some added “depth” to make it less confining.

After seeing Tyler walk the crew through the space, it’s clear why it’s considered one of the smallest apartments in America. He makes very good use of every possible square footage of the apartment. In addition to his lack of space, Tyler also does not have a TV. However, these are two things that Tyler is willing to live without. When he has guests over, he encourages them to talk instead.

According to AWM, folks online shared thousands of comments about Tyler’s tiny apartment.

“This guy is in such a good mood. You can’t buy that kind of happiness. This guy is so content with his space. Respect my man.”

“I think a cell in the state penitentiary has more room. And you get your own toilet, and the rent is paid for.”

“A guy entombed in a tiny cell, sitting at a desk all day with his mirror image staring back at him. It sounds like the perfect setting for a short story by Franz Kafka or Edgar Allan Poe.”

One person expressed their concern about Tyler’s “fake door.”

“A fake door is the most depressing thing ever,” wrote one YouTube user.

One person took inspiration from Tyler to be more grateful for their much larger apartment.

“Never, ever am I complaining about my tiny *ss living space again. I swear all I need to do is clean. He must go out A LOT to escape that kind of cabin fever.”
