A Tumblr That Showcases All the Reasons to Hate NYC
Anyone who lives in New York City knows how difficult it is to find affordable housing. Hell, there’s even a “Rent is Too Damn High” political party. Because of soaring rent prices, New Yorkers have been turning to alternative forms of housing, like lofted rooms inside cold warehouses, basement studios inside dilapidated houses and even closets.
The Worst Room is a Tumblr devoted to all these tragic apartments. Each Tumblr entry showcases an unfortunate squalid apartment (usually found on Craigslist) accompanied with its price and location. You’ll be surprised to learn that places like this cost as much as $1,000 a month. Welcome to New York!
