Guess How Much: Coolest Teeny-Tiny Apartment in Manhattan

It's amazing what can be done with small spaces. Every year, Apartment Therapy holds a Smallest, Coolest Home Contest with five divisions that account for different definitions of small. The teeny-tiny division represents apartments with the least square-footage, in other words, seriously small. This year's division winner rents a 210-square foot abode on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Can you guess how much he pays in rent each month?

This is why I don't live in NY. Waste of money.

oh Manhattan. You never cease to amaze in the lack of space you can get for an outrageous price.

i live in manhattan and while that may seem like a high rent... the Upper West Side is a pretty cool neighbor. a lot of manhattanites (myself included) will sacrifice some space in order to just be apart of this magnificent city. that being said, this apartment is awesomely decorated. i want it.

In downtown Montreal, you can rent a 1160 sq. foot apartment (5 1/2) for $1100 CDN. Manhattan is nuts. My ex was renting one room in Harlem for $750US.

Insane. My 3 bedroom (almost 1,300 square feet w/ a full balcony) is less than half that here. He must never be there with all that bright white. Too sterile for me to enjoy.

Wow, he pays more than my roommates and I do for our 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house in Portland, OR.

It might be overpriced and small, but I really admire the guy for how he makes the space work for him.

Whoa, that's like twice my mortgage payment for a 3 bedroom 1800 square foot house and a 1200 square foot garage. No way in HELL would I pay that much for a tiny little apartment like that.

I guessed correctly. Recently, I've been discovering that Manhattan rents aren't as much as I once thought they were. You'd pay the same amount for a studio in a lot of D.C. neighborhoods.

I knew it would be a lot. I guessed the most expensive. Well I was close. :)

If that apartment were not in such a high demand neighbourhood, it would cost less. It's cute though but I don't think I could live there fulltime.

That's a wonderful tiny apartment. Love the color scheme and the fact that he was able to fit a decent-sized bed and a couch in there. But the price he's paying is eye-gouging.

not surprised. a friend had a smaller & far less attractive place in LES for $1650. it's mind-boggling.
