Will the NY hipster’s CRIB of the future actually be the size of a crib?

Call me madcap, but this “studio” looks bigger than 275 square feet.

Mayor Mike has invited architects to compete for the  pleasure of designing

“micro-unit”  New York apartments ranging in size from 275-300 sq. feet.

That’s more than 100 sq. feet smaller than the  current 400 sq. foot legal limit.

According to our mini-mayor’s website, Mikebloomberg.com, NYC has 1.8 million singles

(and 2 person households) ,  and only 1 million  studio/ one bedroom

apts. Huh?  So where do the other  .8 million New Yorkers live? !!!!!
