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.
