Living Cheap – Tiny NYC Apartment Tour ($600/month)!



you know I moved to New York City to pursue my dream of creating and before I moved here there was just really one thing that scared me the rent New York City is one of the most expensive cities in the world for rent and when you start looking online unlike Craigslist you start looking on like what you can afford and what you can't afford at least for me it wasn't looking the best so today I'm gonna be taking you guys on an apartment tour of a kind of I guess similar set up of where I was living this is the six hundred dollar apartment tour okay so this is the kitchen and you know it's definitely not a luxurious experience by any means but for the price this is an incredible kitchen you have like the four stoves microwave workable microwave a fridge over here it's it's not that bad but the only drawback to living in one of these apartments is you may have some not so clean roommates again I'm moving along from the kitchen is the common room you have like the tables here for I don't know like dinner or maybe a small party you have like a chair here that is pretty yeah it's pretty comfortable you have a couch here that definitely can you know sit like two or three people I don't know for me at this price you're not really expecting that crazy amount of stuff so I think this is a pretty good living room also it's like kind of just funny that there's this tree in the corner here for no reason okay now this this is the bathroom I know that that's a terrible sound but that's like the the radiator I guess on there you see it's like off on so we're gonna have to just go through that terrible terrible sounding thing but anyway here's the bathroom you know for me it's kind of a it's a typical bathroom you know you the you know showerhead here the showers set up it's not the best size in the world but who's complaining for $600 you have the toilet right here of course and probably my favorite thing about this bathroom I know it's weird because it's probably not usually the favorite thing about a bathroom but it's definitely the door it honestly it feels like you go into a sailboat every time okay now moving on to the special of this video the room oh you know for this specific room it's it's not it's not that bad you know of course it is small like I'm gonna turn in a circle and that's pretty much all I can do in this room but it's actually not that bad you know because in New York City you can't really get that much space so what a lot of people do is that build you know like a loft bed here and then they have a couch bed underneath and the reason why it's a good idea to have you know a loft bed and a couch bed is either if you want to you know reduce your rent by half with having like I know it's crazy but having another roommate in this room or you know if you want the entire room to you know to have like space for a guest if they want to come visit in New York City plus also at least for me like this this is actually not bad like it's pretty comfortable and it's quite comparable to an actual bed okay I'm going up to see how life is the loft bed oh wow okay now actually this room it looks fairly big from the loft bed itself high ceilings definitely a plus hmm I honestly yawn every time I set foot in a bed now for me this loft bed it's honestly it's awesome like for me I didn't think I was going to necessarily like a loft bed in this apartment but I don't know like you gain space underneath it feels like a normal bed you know you have the option of course to do really anything you want with the room because you gained like all like look at all of that space down there that would normally be taken up by this lofted bed it's a loft bed oh my gosh every time I get in the bed loft beg it's a thumbs up now another really great thing that this room has that you know not everybody actually has in New York City is the fire escape now I'm not gonna go on this fire escape right now but for some New Yorkers this is kind of like it's kind of how you gain space in a flat you know sometimes you like bring people out here for like some parties sometimes you might just have like drinks up here because you know it's a pretty nice view of the street but I guess it's not a bad space if you want to like gain a few feet in your room oh I should have done this one I have it here oh I'm so there also let me let me show you guys the best part okay now definitely the best thing about this place it has nothing to do with the room kind of nothing to do with the apartment but it has to do with the roof that that's the Freedom Tower right there cut to drone shots so whether you have the dream to move to New York City to pursue a lifestyle or dream money money should not hold you back of course living in a 600 dollar apartment in Manhattan with many roommates it's not it's it's not the most comfortable of living situations but it's definitely an experience that you'll remember for the rest of your life now if eating out prices has you worried at all in NYC check out my dollar meal challenge video here anyway guys that was an incredibly fun video to film and apartment tour where I'm actually living coming soon bye guys

    A room for $600/mo in Manhattan is damn near impossible. I expected a damn closet… I pay 800 for a room in Queens and it’s pretty much the same scenario you see in this vid

    I knew a writer lady who lived in NYC and didn't even have a kitchen. This is a luxury suite in comparison.

    In Peru, almost all of the new houses (flats) are like that. They cost around 20.000 to 300.000 dollars to buy them, depedending on the zone.
