Skip to comments.Mayor Bloomberg Proposes 300-Square-Foot 'Micro' Apartments For New York City Singles

Bloomberg is currently accepting proposals for the apartments, which will be located on E 27th Street and First Avenue in Kips Bay. The apartments would help young professionals find appropriate housing in the city while they start their careers.
The craziest thing about these 300-square-foot apartments (which are about the size of half a subway car) is that they will cost around $2,000 a month to rent.
Under current zoning laws, all apartments must be at least 400 square feet, but Bloomberg said he plans to change the zoning laws to make the new micro-units legal.

ApartmentCare from liberals! Think about the irony of this proposal for "micro apartment" in New York City while Hiz Honnah lives in a palatial mansion four times their size! If this isn't Marxism, its hard to imagine what it would be.
Central planning by city bureaucrats at its finest.
And no popcorn or Big Gulps allowed in their little cages.
Now we know why he wanted to downsize fountain drinks. The apartments aren’t big enough for anything above a 16 ouncer.
Yup. Liberals banned smoking.
Then they banned large size soft drinks.
Now they want to ban the family home - seriously!
Look at where the tyranny of good intentions is leading - to the extirpation of American freedoms and the end of the American Dream.
Does he propose limits on animal or tree growth or does he just want humans in cages?
Mayor Bloombutt should lead the way by living in one for a few years...setting an example doncha know.
Just build one. Put Bloomy in it and nail the f’ing door shut!
Mayor Meathead did not say anything about “forcing” anyone into anything.
And there probably would be a demand for such housing.
Pads just for screwing.
Overnight stays by rich owners.
Places to store dope.
I lived in a studio apt in Chicago as a young man. Took the Murphy bed off the wall and had it on the living room floor. Probably not much bigger than 300 sq ft. Did have a galley kitchen though.
SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) San Franciscos smallest apartments could soon get even smaller. In a proposal before the Board of Supervisors, a developers group is proposing the city change its building code to make the smallest living space in an efficiency apartment 150 square feet, down from the current 220 square feet.
Near Whitey Ford field? Not the best area but i guess if you want cheap.
I've always thought most city dwellers were trapped, but THIS is rediculous
How do you spell Agenda 21?
*shrug* I’ve got 5 people in my 1000 sqft house
“Get ‘Em Out By Friday!”
Perhaps Occupy movement should claim the 300 sq ft micro-apartment is a human right. Then get UN involved......
Hey Bloomingidiot-—put your money where YOUR mouth is. Invest in this yourself—and show us how lucrative it is-—
You won’t, will you...because you know it’s BS.
Put everyone on top of each other to save Mother Earth.
I remember an article from the boston glove which said these singles apparments were for the alternative lifestyle set since they had no children and were only interested in random sex hookups.
