Check Out This 90-Square-Foot Manhattan Apartment
“I wanted to live in Manhattan but I didn’t want [it] to take all my money. I found this place through a friend and it’s a great location. [It's] a great deal… It’s worth it,” says Felice Cohen, the tenant of this 90-square-foot apartment in Manhattan. Cohen’s a professional organizer, which has helped her not run into furniture whenever she’s… inside the apartment, although the first night she slept in the apartment, she reported having a panic attack. No – she really did.
In college I lived in an apartment this small – a single dorm that was actually a converted storage closet, and, well, I always felt embarrassed about it. Cohen, however, handles it well, and with her book coming out soon, hopefully she’ll make enough to get into a regular-sized apartment. The rent at this “ministudio” is $700 a month.

Being married is a funny thing. We take someone we love and are so excited about and then we make them ordinary.

To say that my father died would often send an adult in search of the chink in my armor, the loose thread, the thing that would unravel me in a puddle of mourning. But there is no chink, no thread, no visible scar. My grief is ordinary and well worn.
“I went up to a girl in college and asked her how long she’s liked the Ramones and asked her what her favourite song was. She told me I was stupid as ‘Ramones’ is a brand, Not a band.”
