The apartment of New York Citys future, as the city imagines it, has all the amenities of modern life: wheelchair-accessible bathroom, a full kitchen, space for entertaining and access to a gym, communal lounge, front and back porches and a rooftop garden all in 250 to 370 square feet.

300sf is more than adequate for a studio. Since "nobody" in NYC has kids, this is a great idea.

When Kevin says "NYC", he probably means Manhattan. But even in that rarefied environ there are still plenty of people with lives that wouldn't fit into a coffin.

They tried that shit in South Beach, now the town is on hold every year until Memorial day week end when Thug Fest hits the town. People will live in a bread box for about a minute until they realize they weren't cut out for the Navy.

Making Austerity Cool! I see a bunch of marketing pricks drafting new and exciting ways to package the age of diminishing returns as something progressive and chic to the public.

300 sq.ft. means only half a square foot for each cockroach.

Maybe you didn't notice the sign on your way in, Kevin, but this AMERICA, where we like big for no other sake than BIGNESS! We're the Size Queen's Size Queen! Americans like the BIG CITY; BIG NAILS; BIG SKY; BIG TELEVISIONS; BIG CREW CAB TRUCKS; BIG LAUGHS; BIG SAVINGS; BIG DICKS; BIG STEAKS! BIG!!!!

Of course, BIGNESS is but one All American tenet alongside LOUD! HEAVY! FULL! TOUGH! DUDE! FAST! CHEAP! EXPANSIVE! UNCOMPLICATED!
