NYC Microlofts Can Be Hazardous To Your Health

December 22, 2013

Apparently, living in a small New York apartment can cramp more than your  style. Even though Mayor Michael Bloomberg has championed the micro-unit, some  experts are concerned that living in 250 to 370 feet spaces could be  risky.“Sure, these micro-apartments may be fantastic for young professionals in  their 20’s,” Dak Kopec, director of design for human health at Boston  Architectural College, told The Atlantic. “But they definitely can be unhealthy for  older people, say in their 30’s and 40’s, who face different stress factors that  can make tight living conditions a problem.”According to Mr. Kopec, the space-saving trend of tiny apartments can lead to  increased claustrophobia, domestic abuse, alcoholism, and wanderlust.
