Real life and reel life small apartments in New York

Who hasn’t dreamed of moving to New York, at least for a couple of years?  Pretty much everyone, which is why living space is at such a premium in that city.  And when people pay such a lot for such a little space, they get pretty creative with how they use their limited living area.

A recent discovery of mine, YouTube program SPACEStv brings us this super sleek space-age apartment — completely finished in recycled materials.  Watch this and learn more about it:

Incredible that this space was built by just one guy!  It looks like something from 2001 (the movie, not the year).

And from Inhabitat we see a similar space but a completely different take.  The HBO series Girls features a very home-made looking space-saving studio suite built by and for the character Charlie. As in real life, this apartment uses every square inch for living.

The space was designed by production designer Laura Ballinger

There’s something about the “Tron” apartment that looks a little toooooooo white and clean.  But since the builder/occupant is an environmentalist it was important for him to get away from the dirt and the garbage he deals with every day.

Which would you choose?
