New York is known for its incredibly high rents and tiny apartments. TikToker AJ Webber claims he lives in the smallest apartment in New York City, and in a now-viral clip with over 21 million views, he gives us a full tour.
He opened the video by saying, “Heres what it’s like living in the smallest apartment in New York. Whatever your expectations are, lower them.”
Opening the front door, we’re immediately met with a sink. Right next to it, there is a small kitchen and pantry stocked with boxed carbohydrates, such as mac and cheese, popcorn and of course, instant ramen noodles. “There’s no nutritional value here,” AJ says. Also on the shelves are a single bowl and plate.
He then shuffled over to his “living quarters,” and impressively shows off two beds that fit in his tiny apartment. “Some nights I’m a queen guy, other nights I chill on the twin.” He also showed us his closet and his piano before ending the video by playing a few keys.
“This is half a dorm room. Are you ok?” wrote one person.
Another person said, “Whatever you’re paying is too much.”
Calling back to AJ’s intro, another person commented, “i lowered my expectations and still, they were too high.”
