The listing for this Chinatown studio, which truly may be the saddest apartment in all of New York City (at least this week), gets right to the point: "Although the shower is in the kitchen, YES it's in the kitchen, it has a separate room for your bed- so the kitchen/living area can easily accommodate a sofa and small table & chairs & more!" If the kitchen shower weren't bad enough, it's clear that the shower has taken the refrigerator's place, so the fridge is, quite literally, shoved in a closet.

The "bathe where you eat/live/sleep" aesthetic is not unheard of in New York, but this may be the most pathetic iteration. Even still, this is Manhattan, so the place was rented in less than two weeks. It was listed for $1,795, but the broker claimed that "the rent may be negotiable," so it could have gone for less.
