I’ve now been living in a small space in New York City for 16 years. My first apartment was a true studio apartment which is code for one small room. I’m now living in a Loft space which is also code for one room, but fortunately we have some extra space to section out rooms for our family. The high ceilings also help us feel less cramped and believe it or not none of our three kids have ever told us they would like a bigger apartment. Whew!
