New York Magazine's Justin Davidson ponders the upsides and downsides of the city's new micro-apartment obsession: "The real innovation?is the mayor's apparent willingness to adapt regulations to the way people actually live: alone, in groups, in single-parent households, or in a mix of generations." But these small apartments "could turn pretty quickly into pestilential shoeboxes. After all, limits on how many tenants could be packed into how small a space exist because of the inhumane conditions in tenements a century ago." [NYM; previously]
