The going rate for a Hell’s Kitchen studio is upwards of $2,000/month, but when now 32-year-old Luke Clark Tyler moved into his pad in 2011, he signed a lease foronly$750. This might sound like a bargain, but the freelance designer/architect is living (and working!) in an astonishingly small 78 square feet, which bySharably’s accountis the smallest apartment in America. And when you break that down by price per square foot, he’s actually paying almost twice as much as the neighborhood average. But nevertheless, Tyler is happy to have the extra cash to enjoy the many dance performances in his ‘hood and says that after living tiny for more than five years, “we adapt very easily as people.”
Is this the smallest apartment in America?
Could you live in 78 square feet?
