Name: Erica Thomas
Location: Williamsburg — Brooklyn, New York
Size: 494 square feet
Years lived in: 6 months, renting
I live in a 494-square-foot studio apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This is the first apartment I’ve ever lived in that has a really fantastic layout that utilizes all of the space well. It has 10-foot ceilings and a wall of eight-foot windows, so it definitely feels bigger than it is. I’ve lived here six months and prioritized getting the space decorated and organized as soon as possible. Otherwise, I know myself, and I would be living with a bunch of unpacked boxes indefinitely.
