Ever complained about the small size of your apartment?
If you live in a major urban destination such as New York or San Francisco, outrageously high rents and small spaces are a fact of life. Unfortunately for urban dwellers, apartments will continue to get smaller...at least in the foreseeable future.
|Virtual Micro-Apartment in San Francisco|
I'm really not sure how to feel about these Micro-Apartments. On one hand, I'm kind of horrified that apartment developers think human beings can live in virtual prison cells. On the other hand, these are the perfect option for young people who work all day and only use their apartments to shower and sleep. Not to mention $1600/month is cheap for a modern apartment in the city centre!
