New Yorker astounds viewers with tour of a ‘claustrophobic’ studio apartment: ‘You couldn’t pay me to live there’

A video tour of a New York City rental apartment makes TikToker go insane.
For many viewers, the studio apartment, currently on the market for $2,595 a month, seems unlivable.
Located on East 35th Street in Midtown Manhattan, the rental has only one oddly shaped room. There is a full kitchen, closet, bathroom and living area that is less than 7ft wide.
What is inflation and what causes it?

TikTokers get a peek at the place thanks to @rentnewyork. The TikToker runs a popular site with apartment tours ranging from good to bad to downright confusing.
But this recent tour caused a particularly big stir - the clip posted has been viewed over 3 million times!
"Is that the smallest studio in New York City?" asks the TikToker at the beginning of the clip.
The tour comes amid a series of New York City apartment videos that have gone viral.
As Manhattan rental prices continue to rise, users have turned to TikTok with complaints about their living conditions. In one clip, a New Yorker claimed she was leaving town after learning her rent would rise by over $700.

Other TikTokers have used the app to complain about weird or ridiculously small apartments. For example, a user's tour of a "nauseous" apartment in Washington Heights had commenters questioning how anyone could even get their furniture inside.

In the video by @rentnewyork, the TikToker gives viewers a glimpse of all the features.
The studio has an oven, hob, dishwasher and full fridge although storage space is clearly limited. The bathroom is narrow but has mirrors and a glass door shower that look quite modern.
Finally @rentnewyork shows the view from the windows of the apartment. The unit is on the first floor and faces a small alleyway.
"It's not that bad out here," says the TikToker.
Commentators had overwhelmingly negative reactions to the tour. Many wondered how one could live there - especially at this price.
"Need to see it set up," wrote one user. "Because no way."
"I can't imagine why on earth people accept that? I seriously wonder is living in New York worth it?” another added.
"You couldn't pay me to live there," wrote another.
