Imagine yourself lounging in your living room in New York City – relaxing on a sofa that can face a fireplace with a beautiful wood mantel.
You look to your left and see a shower. Yes, a shower in your living room.
The icing on the cake: there is a towel bar right on the side.
A new video showing this cramped layout – in a city apartment that charges an impressive monthly rent – has went viral on TikTok.
The clip of the dismal dwelling was easily caught north of 1.6 million views among viewers puzzled by the arrangement.
“When you pay $ 2,200 [per month] and I have to shower in the living room, âwrote real estate agent Claudia Degteva in the caption of the video, which has also garnered around 135,000 likes since Thursday and around 2,300 shares.
It is not known where the unit is located in New York. But despite all of its drawbacks, it also seems to have a lot of normal features to offer its next tenant.
The living space itself is large and well lit thanks to two oversized windows that appear to face the street. Directly behind there is a spacious kitchen with decent counter space and storage cupboards. And just behind the kitchen there is an exposed bedroom with an exposed brick wall and – thanks to the shower being in the living room – a shower room with WC.
Yet despite the benefits of the space, Degteva commentators were quick to share their thoughts.
“You have to entertain the guests somehow,” one viewer said, while another named Harsh said: “New York City cannot continue to get away with these awful amenities. apartmentsâ¦ were the architects drunk. “
A follower responded to Harsh saying, âThe owners continue to buy buildings and divide the large units into several small ones. I’ve seen it on newly built units.
Meanwhile, a commentator asked, “Why does anyone bother to glamorize NY, we all know they’re wrapped like an ATM for thousands of dollars a month.”
But others, who seem to be in an Empire frame of mind, don’t really care about the original crib.
âYou have windows so that’s pretty cool for NYC,â one said, while another replied âit doesn’t. [really] bother me. âBut another didn’t care about the price.
âThe fact that I saw this and thought ‘that looks like a good deal’,â she said.
