This video from a year ago just had a viral surge being posted on sites like Gawker.

Felice Cohen wanted to live in Manhattan, but didn’t want to drain her checking account. Even small apartments can run for thousands of dollars a month to rent. So she rented a tiny 90 square foot apartment. There’s not even a kitchen. People can adapt to almost anything. It’s similar to what the Japanese do in Tokyo. The ‘bedroom’ is actually kind of cool. It’s like your own little fort.

So how much does her little cage cost? $700 a month. You can rent a two story house for that much in middle America.
