New York City is notorious for its less-than roomy real estate that go for astronomical prices – and one property has proven that theory far too true.
A listing for a 140-square-foot studio at the top of a four-floor walk up is on the market for a whopping $1,375 a month.
The space lacks a lounging area and kitchen but is complete with a door-less bathroom and a bed frame with a mini fridge stacked right on top.
Your Vanity Reality touts the Upper West Side listing as the ‘cheapest deal around the neighborhood you will find to live on your own!’
A shower stall, toilet and sink are separated by a half wall behind the bunk bed, which has a refrigerator on top
The property’s location is prime, situated a few blocks aware from Central Park

One woman took to Twitter, clearly discouraged while apartment hunting
The property’s location is prime, situated a few blocks aware from Central Park at 114 West 71st Street.
The real estate agent acknowledges the cramped the space, writing in the property description: ‘NYCs Famous Small living space sleeping quarters..!!’
One Twitter-user spotted the property while apartment hunting and was discouraged by the results.
‘Looking for apartments in NYC is wild depressing,’ the Syracuse alumna wrote.
‘Like how you put a fridge on top of a bed and want 1375 a month for it?’ she asked, pointing out the mini fridge placed strategically on top of what appears to be a bunk bed.
A shower stall, toilet and sink are separated by a half wall and there are no windows in the studio.
There is a bright side, however, as utilities are included in the rent and the space has been renovated with hardwood floors.
Other online Twitter users offered some suggestions – try looking outside of Manhattan, or perhaps down south where you can get more bang for your buck.
