The Home Lives of Chefs

Chef and Momofuku owner David Chang gives the Journal a fun peek at his NYC apartment history, like his first place on First Avenue: "The apartment was probably less than 400 square feet; it was one of those studios made to look like a one-bedroom. It was on the second floor and faced the alley. I don't think sunlight had ever reached any of the rooms. There was one window facing the alleyway, and there were bars on that window. It was old and kind of dumpy; it had white walls, a TV, and there was a bed in it when I moved in. It was a weird shape. I think the rent was something like $1,400, but I don't exactly remember."
