    This New York Apartment Is So Cramped The Shower Is Actually In The Kitchen

    Oh, New York.

    Apartment hunting in any city can be tough, but the New York City real estate market is notorious for high-priced, terrible living quarters.

    The Tumblr The Worst Room has collected some of the most horrifying examples for ages.

    One recent listing for a studio apartment on Manhattan's Lower East Side manages to really stand out. The shower is in the kitchen. That's right: The shower is actually in the kitchen.

    A shower kitchen is apparently not an unusual arrangement for tenement apartments.

    Also, the bedroom "will not fit more than a bed," the broker wrote.

    Here's a look at the bathroom, sans shower.

    This beautiful space can be yours for the low, low price of $1,795, according to the Misrahi Realty Padmapper listing.

    Situated south of delancey on orchard-This old world style apt is better than your average studio! Although the shower is in the kitchen, YES it's in the kitchen, it has a separate room for your bed- so the kitchen/living area can easily accommodate a sofa and small table & chairs & more!

    Gotta give it to them for trying to make this sound like a positive.

    In all fairness, this could be the perfect setup if eating in the shower is your thing.


    (Shout-out to @Wilson__Valdez for the excellent reference.)

    At least the broker says the rent "may be negotiable."
