I too fill sorry for cats. I cant stop reading their name as Porkchops.
Gag - can you imagine the stink in there from the kitty box?

Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
$175? You've got to be shitting me.
And I thought Miami was bad.

175,000 in Morningside Heights (Columbia and Barnard universities) for that amount of square footage. That is insanity. For two people? Maybe if it was for one Columbia Univ. student. At best that is a 900 dollar rental, but you don't buy something that size for that amount. There is something wrong with them. They just had to live in Manhattan no matter what? With cats too? Ridiculous.
My old college dorm room had more space and personality. There is no way I could live there.
No way in hell. The bathroom looks like a long twizzler.
No, and that space or lack there of is ridiculous. And no way in the world would I have two cats or any animal living there.

I don''t know if she really fucked the board though. Maybe just put the tip in. -Mrs. Dark
i've seen studios that size or smaller in europe but there's usually only one person living in them, not two.
though i did know one woman who lived in a studio with her 2 children for about a year because that's all she could afford until she finished her PhD. the kids were about 9 and 11. now that would have been even worse than 2 kids.
i think these 2 have some kind of philosophical thing going on - notice the total lack of storage and it's not like they couldn't fit an ikea closet in there. i think they're on some kind of spartan kick. she also mentions that she used to be frivolous and collected vintage clothing as if that was so decadent and imelda marcos of her. they seem to have rid themselves of most of their earthly possessions except for the really necessary ones.

In theory I wouldn't mind it as some sort of second home/pied-a-terre. In reality, though, I have to agree with Chalet. The price - especially when you add in the maintenance fee - offends me. And I get that it's Manhattan and everything, but I'm sure you could spend just a little bit more and get something a little bit bigger a little bit further away; would be worth it to me.
As a few other posters have mentioned, they could make the space far more useful if they wanted. A loft bed with desk and chair underneath, some floating shelves, some clever kitchen stuff. I don't see that their planned Murphy bed will help them much; where would they put the stuff in the new floor space once the bed is pulled down? I think a loft bed would be a wiser option, but to each their own.

As much as I love NYC and would want to live there in the future if I could, I couldn't deal with a space this small. Especially if I have someone else living with me. I don't mind small spaces, but this is TOO small.
