Q: After many years of renting in NYC, I bit the bullet and started shopping for studios in Manhattan. After seeing what can only be described as glorified dorm rooms on a champagne budget, I finally stumbled upon a gem in Chelsea. This studio has the rare separate kitchen and a huge closet, 11 foot ceilings and white painted brick. After all the messed up places I saw I immediately fell in love with this mini loft due to the beautiful renovations and (slightly) reasonable price. Cut to paying the deposit and making my third visit and taking measurements - it was nowhere as large as I imagined it was! Those tall ceilings tricked me! The floor plan gets extra tricky because I can't tuck a bed in the top left corner due to an AC unit under the window. This floor plan is the best I could do with standard double bed measurements, and I wanted to see if anyone had any better ideas!
