A New York City realtor named Cameron Knowlton has left his TikTok viewers stunned after giving a video tour or what he called “the worst NYC apartment ever” in one of the most desirable areas in the city – Manhattan.

This after he showed a tiny apartment with no room for a stove, full fridge or freezer, with rent priced at an astonishing $1650 (R24,699) per month.

The apartment is simply a narrow room which serves as both the sleeping and living space, with a sink in the corner and a mini-fridge attached to the sink. It also has a singular closet.

Before you ask if that’s all, it really is. The bathroom is located outside the apartment and it is a communal space to be shared with everyone in the complex.

 

According to a report by Insider, the bathroom is actually two separate “rooms” – the shower and the toilet.

The toilet area doesn’t even have a sink and a key is your only way of keeping other people out while you go about your business.
