Speaking about living in a shoebox! Felice Cohen lives in a studio apartment that measures 12 feet by 7 feet. When faced with the old urban dilemma – space vs. location – she clearly chose location. This beautiful Upper West Side neighborhood is enviable for many. By settling for a tiny 90 sq ft studio, Felice managed to afford it on a budget of $700 (whereas the usual monthly rent for a studio here comes up to $3,600). Check out the video below to see the tricks she used to make the place not only livable but even charming and cozy.

It was very refreshing to read and see the video clipping on Simple Life in Manhattan – many of the comments, from Yahoo to this one, were down right mean in character and sarcasm – many of them may be out of jealousy, don’t you think? look at what she has that they don’t – peace of mind, setting of priorities, contentment and most of all, the guts to follow her dreams without hurting others or at others’ expense – after all they don’t pay her bills, do they? and thumbs up to the landlord who made it possible ; )
hey folks, you may have a big house, but looks like you got an empty heart.
I guess you could say “eat your heart out…but then again…you already done that, and it is vacant, folks!!!
