Taking a Little Bite Out of the Big Apple

For those of us who have spent decades living in Manhattan, with its exorbitant property costs, diminished living spaces and the absolute excitement of living in the greatest city in the world...the ingenuity shown below strikes me as oh-so New York....It also shows an inordinate amount of executive functioning ability.  (And you thought I wouldn't find a tie-in to special needs parenting.)

Meanwhile if you are interested in understanding why Manhattan is called the Big Apple read HERE and HERE.  And since nothing is sacred anymore, read HERE about the fight between NYC and Apple Computers about who gets to keep an "apple" as their logo... I know because there are no other problems in the world right...


The YouTube Blurb:

By choosing a studio that measures just 12 feet by 7 feet, Felice Cohen can afford to live in Manhattan's Upper West Side where apartments rent for an average of $3,600 per month. She pays just over $700 for her 90-square-foot microstudio. After a bit of adjustment she now loves living smaller, simpler and cozier.

A real lesson in what we can and cannot do without. But then again, we special needs parents seem to already have a bit of a handle on whats really important in life.

Until next time,
