New York City has once again shocked the internet with its horrifying apartments.
For $1,650 a month, the studio — comparable to a small walk-in closet — has a tiny fridge, no stove and zero bathroom.
One TikTok user joked that the bathroom was at a “Starbucks 3 blocks away.”
In fact, like many NYC single-room occupancy units, in order to shower, you would have to carry your keys with you to unlock the communal bathroom that you share with other tenants on the floor. The toilet is in a separate location on the opposite end of the hall from the shower — and it doesn’t even have a sink.
Many TikTok users were horrified at the video, which shows that you really don’t get much for your buck when it comes to this place.
“That’s double my house payment on a 1900-square-foot home in Texas,” commented one TikTok user.
“And people thought we were joking when we said New York City apartments were like closets,” another user wrote.
“College dorms are better than this,” another person remarked.
In an interview with The Post, Tatum Kelly of Compass Realty revealed that the landlord, who has not hired an agent for this specific listing, was set on the price despite the ongoing pandemic.
“Prices have dropped tremendously due to the pandemic across the city,” Kelly said. “This particular landlord however is very firm on pricing … though it may seem like no one would want this apartment, the building was usually at full occupancy pre-COVID.”
“As far as market trends go, the apartments that were already the lowest in NYC did not drop as drastically as the average or higher priced units,” Kelly said.
I guess the saying “no pain, no gain,” doesn’t really apply here.
