Life in a 55 Square Foot Rental


On the heels of a story about a couple's 175 square foot studio apartment in Morningside Heights, which they bought for $150,000, The New York Post has run a feature on outrageously small rental apartments, starting with the 55 square foot studio of Eddie Rabon.

The freelance producer's home in the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, just west of Times Square, is only one square foot larger than a city jail cell. Rabon eats every meal out, and can't turn around in his sliver of a shower (some guests can't even close the bathroom door).
