If there's one thing for certain about living in New York City, it's that times (and space) can be tight.
With the cost of living and apartment square footage being at a record high in this city, it's no wonder that many New Yorkers end up settling for basically living in a shoe box.
But could you imagine living in the city and being a family of four? Even for the rich, this can be tough (at times... maybe).
However, one NYC family of four proves the unimaginable by living in a 640 square foot apartment... with room to spare.
Don't believe us? Check out the small space for yourself in these pictures below.
Having a home office in an apartment of this size might seem impossible, but flexible furniture transforms one room into two.
All it takes is gentle downward pressure to lower a desk to the floor, bringing the kid-size mattress into position for bedtime.
From the living room, the narrow apartment stretches back into the sleeping quarters by way of a compact kitchen that packs all the needs of a home chef against one wall.
The bed takes up nearly the entire master bedroom, but it doesn’t make the space feel cramped. The wide window keeps the tiny box light.
When it’s time to eat or do homework, the family lowers the tabletop-- revealing a dozen book cubbies.
The table’s base, which itself is an additional storage container, rolls easily into place to support the surface.
Talk about making the best out of a tiny space, right?
