Today, a reader sends in a report on the most amazing 200 square feet in New York City:
I went to an open house at 96 Perry St. on Sunday and saw the most amazing use of 200 sq feet ever! Seriously the room was maybe 12 x 12 w/12 foot ceilings. But it was immaculate! The bathroom was all marble with gorgeous fixtures. The 4x7 kitchen was all top of the line w/ granite counter tops. A loft was stuck on top of the bathroom but even the owner admitted he had
given up on climbing the ladder and suggested a murphy bed instead. The
photos don't do it justice.
However, a week in the place would drive anyone insane...and it's still
$299K. It would make a nice "boutique" hotel room but you couldn't actually live there full time.
