‘Tiny’ Is The New Buzz Word In New York City

If you’re claustrophobic, you’re not gonna like to hear this.

New York City planners want “big” apple residents to think “small” – as in tiny.

Currently there are about 8.2 million people living in New York City.  By the year 2030 another 600 thousand are expected to move in.  So architects are busy designing ways to make it more comfortable.

Current law requires there be at least 400 square feet in a dwelling.  The idea is being thrown around to drop that down to 250 square feet.

To put that into perspective – that’s about the size of a single car garage.

There’s a bed that folds out over a couch, and a fold out dinette table tucked under the kitchen counter.

An example of what the living space would be like goes on display this week at the Museum of the City of New York.
