Recently, The New York Times published an article that detailed out a project called My Micro NY, which won a competition for the New York's first "micro apartments," sponsored by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

Intended to create affordable housing for single people living in New York City, those prefabricated affordable apartments are being made in the Brooklyn Navy Yard and will be unveiled in Manhattan's Kips Bay during Spring 2015.

NYC's first "micro" building will have a total 55 rental apartments, all ranging from 260- to 360-square-feet with huge windows, great storage space, and Juliet balconies.

The building's official address is 335 East 27th Street, in Kips Bay, with apartments renting for $2,000 to $3,000 a month.

Take a look at these amazingly-detailed pictures of the apartments below, and let us know... any interest, New Yorkers?
