My boyfriend and I are experiencing the pleasures of searching for an apartment in NYC and this one is a winner because you can shower and cook breakfast at the same time. No, really, the shower is IN the kitchen. And only for $2,700 /mo. pic.twitter.com/tr9Fn4dl8x

The best thing about the listing for the $3,100 NYC apartment with the bathtub in the kitchen is it includes a mocked up image of how it would look once you include a dining table & chairs https://t.co/vaCvFtNzPQ pic.twitter.com/2QScGeDUSG
