You see? We can be nice! Trolling Craigslist for no particular reason, we came across this listing for a loft on 23rd and Seventh Avenue, in the heart of Chelsea. It's advertised as having a built bedroom and other "amazing built-ins," plus oversized windows and a northern exposure in a doorman building with laundry on every floor and a charming little roof deck. Phew. But what really got us was the pictures, of course, filled with sunshiney goodness and a knack for space-creating decoration that we're kind of envious of. The ad has it at $579,000, but from the pics it does look tiny enough to give your parents a fatal heart attack ("Half-a-million dollars? For that?" Other moms are like that, right?). A proper Googling led us to the real listing, at Metropolitan Property Group.
