Simple life in Manhattan: A 90-square-foot home

Simple life in Manhattan: A 90-square-foot home, article and video.
One New Yorker has taken her love of frugal living to the extreme. Felice Cohen’s apartment measures just 90 square feet, but she doesn’t see it as a sacrifice. With such a small space, she pays just $700 to live in a part of town where rents average $3,600 per month.

I think that's cool. Way too many people are living under an extreme pressure because they chose a home they basically can't afford, and it's riding them day and night. In many countries right now, if interest rates were to go up just a point or two (and flexible-rate loans following), a great number of people would lose their home, so closely are they squeezed.

How much is 90 square feet in M2 ?

If you type "90 square feet in square metres" to Google, it will tell you the answer, 8.3 m².

A bonus with this home of hers, she's got a good excuse for turning down obese boyfriends!
