My TINY NYC Apartment Tour ! (350 Sq Ft in Greenwich Village, Manhattan) Part 2


What’s up guys Jon coming to you from Greenwich Village In New York City My home neighborhood And if you’ve been watching my channel you’ve probably seen my finding an apartment in New York City series Let me tell you It was not easy Well today.. 7 months after I made my original tiny apartment video I’m going to show you part two Where I turn my tiny two-bed room apartment Into an equally tiny 1-bedroom apartment Stay tuned til the end And i’m going to tell you exactly how much We’re paying We’ve just walked into the lobby of my building And nothing has changed on that front Still no elevator After 7 months And i don’t think there’s ever going to be an elevator I live on the fourth floor And a lot of people that live in New York City understand the plight Of having to go up and down the stairs All the time But it does keep you in shape That’s the benefit Alright we have made it to my apartment.. Welcome home We’re going to start with the bathroom And it’s not a very big bathroom As this apartment is only 350 square feet to begin with So.. nothing in this apartment is that big We changed the shower curtain here New rug And this is my personal favorite Right here For you male viewers out there.. when you’re standing around Doing something you can just stare and kind of learn a little bit more about the neighborhoods Of New York City We completely decluttered this bathroom Just got this from Trader Joes Very cool cactus We’ve still got to fill this bookcase up.. At some point Now i’m going to show you all.. one of the big changes that’s occured In this apartment It’s what used to be my brothers room If you saw the last video My friend Mike was actually staying over The room was kind of a disaster It was a small bedroom I always found it kind of cluttered Completely different now So i’m excited to show you this And I’m going to let Adriana take over as the tour guide Alright Adriana How are you guys? Okay i’m going to show you this room It was basically a disaster The walls were so dirty So we painted them And I don’t know if you remember the video when we went to Ikea And we got this This perfect couch We couldn’t get anything bigger Because the room is not so big But I think it’s perfect for Jon And also.. we were thinking about a Big Tv But as you can see The distance is a little bit short So we decided that this one was much better for our eyes And this beautiful table from Amazon I think Jon.. he’s really going to enjoy this room What about the plants over there You almost forgot them Our babies We don’t have pets, we don’t have kids We have plants Here you have.. we got them a few days ago And I think they are the perfect touch for the room What do you think guys? When you have a room that’s extremely small Light colors are key Mirror right there It’s like our little living room slash TV room It’s just nice to have an extra space To escape to When you’re stuck in a small apartment all day This means everything Trust me Now we’re moving down the hallway To the kitchen area And this is Team Adriana’s desk right here She’s a very talented artist She has a lot of her work all over This is a little corner desk Which fits perfectly in a tiny space It even has this drawer right here Got the white chair to match Octubre I think you guys can figure out what month that is in Spanish This is one of my favorite pieces of the entire apartment The mirror right here A mirror can make a small space Look a lot better And maybe my favorite new thing about the apartment.. Is this table We just added it These two new chairs Square shape But we can pull it out if need be Got fruits here We bought this as well To put the coffee maker I like this corner I feel like we’re utilizing the space quite well We completely decluttered the shelves as you can see Not a whole lot going on And then Adriana literally created this piece Just for the apartment Take a look Check out my Refrigerator By the way This is one of my favorite little touches here I’ve got money from just about every country I’ve ever visited We line them all up Guys I have no idea where this Saudi Arabian note came from I’m not sure I’ve never been to Saudi Arabia This is the first time I’ve ever seen this Maybe my twin brother put it here Weird.. We’re about to walk into my bedroom And I really haven’t changed that much in here This is the one room that I would like to do.. some things to do If you guys have any suggestions. On how to decorate a tiny bedroom I’m curious I’ve been lazy I admit it This right here is my work area I showed this in the last video I made My Youtube Channels’ right there I’m always on it Desk Printer Little closet With the dresser stuff here Full size bed Could have gotten a queen But we went with a full here Just I didn’t want to take up so much space Mirror right there Pumpkins a nice touch During Halloween It matches Eckhart Tolle’s New Earth My favorite book ever Beautiful view of.. not much In New York City A lot of people don’t have views If you wathed my series on apartment’s I thought we had a bad view I saw a ton of apartment’s in Greenwich Village And Soho which had worse views Where it was like.. Darkness and shadow right up against the window So in retrospect.. this is not that bad This is also quite clutch up here This extra shelf space Very nice Let’s go to the roof And talk about pricing The best part of any New York City apartment The rooftop This is where I come just to.. meditate You’re above everything The city feels a lot smaller from up here Now the golden question How much do I pay to live in the heart of Greenwich Village A lot of money I’m not going to sugar coat it 2,700 dollars a month People that live in this area We’re paying for location We’re paying for conveniences.. to be Near everything that greenwich village And downtown Manhattan has to offer But i’m curious Tell me in the comments Would you pay that much money for an apartment Why or why not Considering that is one of the best neighborhoods in all of New York City Guys , if you’re new to this channel Make sure to subscribe I’ve got a ton of New York City tips videos And vlogs Coming up Over the next couple of months It’s going to get more and more interesting I promise you that Thank you so much For watching As always Until next time

  2. No way ! i own my own home it is 2000 sqf I pay less than 1000. It has 3 bdr, 2. Full baths a den , living room, dining room laundry room, Car garage, and a fenced in back yard . I live with in walking distance to a deli, restaurant's, movie theater, parks and bowling alley .Not to mention my neighbor is very quite .

  3. I could only pay it if $ were not an issue. I assume you pay for heat, elec, and garbage on top of that and other city charges. I would not want to feel like I could not enjoy city life b/c I am scraping by and have to hole up in my apartment all the time.

  4. 1350 each isnt bad actually. Space is overrated as it has been shown that people don’t utilize the space thry have anyway

  5. Looking forward to seeing more videos. No I am to old to go up that many stairs and much to busy in New York.

  6. Adrianna said what do u think guys? So i am going to tell you what i think. This hi priced closet is nothing to be
    proud of with what u r paying for it.
    It's a total rip off. If ppl like u keep paying this $ for this unworthy shit prices will just keep going up. There should be an uprising against this.
    The most i would pay in that area for that size apt would be around 900 to 1300 $. You r totally getting effed in the a**. Sorry but u asked. New York is not that wonderful and neither is New Jersey. California is expensive but at least the sun is always shining and the beaches r cleaner and the ppl in Cali r friendly and fun to talk to. New York? NAH , no thanku.

  7. Nice place. If you love it and make enough money to live there than happy for you. Me I dont think there anything in ney your that you cant find in other cities. Most have night life. Theaters and ect. Its just a trade off for what each of us find important.

  8. You must love the city to pay that much. You could pay yourself in a mortgage for less and have a bigger place. However we all have different priorities and dreams.

  9. 2700 is a lot of money but i live in Philadelphia. Here i can have my choice of neighborhoods and size. Also I'd never want to live in NYC. Nice to visit but not live.

  10. So many people in the comments are saying "Hell no, I wouldn't pay that much. You can live in a huuuge house with land for a fraction of the cost" etc. etc. Guys, come on, do you honestly think New Yorkers don't know they pay so much more for certain things? Please stop assuming these people are stupid, they very much prefer to live there for a reason. Not every person wants a McMansion in suburbia.

  11. On another channel I saw a 70 square-foot apartment for $1600 and it had a shared toilet and shower! This one is super cute and I would totally live here!

  12. I lived as 18-year old on 271 West 11th Street, fifth floor between Bleecker and West 4th for $1095 – tiny 1 bedroom and later on 395 West Street (2 bedroom for $1200) above Chinese Restaurant across from piers in 1992-1994 – I LOVED living in the Village, but $2700 for 350 sq feet is a lot.

  13. Most white people live in Manhattan or perhaps Brooklyn. Very few live in say the Bronx or the black Harlem. John prefers living around white people he should just be honest about it.

  14. Nono thats to much for a 350 square feet isn't worth it u can get a huge place fot half that price in florida!!! 2.700 is a down payment on a house spend ur money wiseley!

  15. If you don't save for retirement, you're going to regret it. But if you are working on your retirement funds, I see nothing wrong with paying to live in the neighborhood of your choice. $2700 isn't bad for Greenwich Village, a wonderful neighborhood. If you don't mind the space being small then it really doesn't matter that you could have a large place elsewhere for the same money. Happy Living In The Village, Here Be Barr!

  16. No judgement, but who would want to live in NYC period? Guess I am a country girl and don’t see the appeal whatsoever.

  17. You guys have done a great job. Your kitchen is bigger than I expected. Full size fridge is a bonus. Looks light and bright. The whole size isn't bad at all. Are you able to use the outside space outside your bedroom? I am not used to NYC prices. But if you can afford it and are happy, I say Good Job!

  18. Yes I would pay for location I just moved into a more expensive apartment so my son can go to a great high school in a better neighborhood we are 1.6 miles away from his school

  19. I would live there if I made enough money to live there but also I would have a roommate would cut the cost four nice area New York not bad cute apartment just like the way you decorated it in a small way downsizing the best way to go about it would love to hear more about New York I love visiting New York and originally from New Jersey but now in California

  20. I would pay that amount of money but not for that amount of space. We need to do something this crazy ass rent situation this shit is cruel lol it’s not right

  21. No I will never pay $2,000 for a house or so small an apartment. But it all depends on where you heart is. Mine is in AR, $348 a month own 🏡. It's all in the ❤

  22. Big TV: Big Heart! I sit 5 feet from a 65" TV and I'd cram the largest TV I could get up those stairs into this apartment.

  23. I would buy two of the box foot stools where the tops reverse into a table top. The foot stools can be used for additional seating in your living room or for putting your feet up while binge watching TV.

  24. God I'm blown away by the rent. My husband and I do not pay that much, in fact,we pay less than half of that In Louisiana for a huge nice apart ment with hard wood floors etc

  25. I dont care hoe many Starbucks and nightclubs they cram into your neighborhood…(gay-borhood, more like)…
    $2,700 a month is insanity!!! You only enable those rental sharks by paying that much for a sardine can!

  26. Possibly the most over rated city on the plant. Lost all it's soul after 9/11. Small family owned businesses went to the wall and the big conglomerates moved in.. Greedy place is nyc. 18% service charge. Not be in a hurry to go back

  27. Heck no paying $2700. That’s crazy. Take subway to the city. What’s so great about living in Greenwich. That’s why landlords hike up rents so much because people are willing to live like that. Ugh 😑

  28. I would never pay that. I would commute. I pay only $600/month for a 3 bedroom house, I'm 40 minutes from Ft. Worth. I get to come home to no traffic & no noise.

  29. That is an insane amount to pay for such a small apartment. I literally have 4x the space you have and only pay $1100 per month

  30. That’s about right. It’s a 2 bedroom so ideally you’d have a roommate to split the cost. Nice job in keeping it minimal in terms of decor. That along with it painted white, all the mirrors and the windows make it feel and look bigger than it’s actual size.

  31. like song who is singing? No I will not pay for that 2700. I like space, my brand new2000 sq ft townhouse for less money. I don’t need be in NY city.

  32. My house is 1,750 squat feet and my mortgage is 1,320 a month so the price for that tiny tiny place is shocking to say the least!😳

  33. I will do it, also, since there are two of you, it is actually not that bad. 1350 per person, which is very reasonable price if you live in the center of the NY. That’s the same price of a 2 bedroom here in downtown Seattle, probably newer and bigger here. But if I have a job in NYC, with my current pay I’d consider rent a place similar to yours

  34. I'm living in the East Bronx close to soundview ⛴ make Manhattan closer to us… u will pay less for bigger APT around $2000 parking included. ( Country Club, Pelham Bay & Throgs Neck) a lot to do around here

  35. If the govt would let people build there wouldn't be that rental problem. 5 story buildings are all over the place in NYC. They should build 400 story buildings. The rental prices are caused by govt policy.

  36. New Yorkers and their location 😂 He'll no I wouldn't pay that, I pay a quarter of that in CT for 2 full bedrooms, eat in kitchen bathroom and huge living room.. You can rent a huge apartment in CT for half that price and buy a car to drive to the locations you want 😁

    What's so great about your location anyways? And you better not say food 🙁

  37. 2700 isnt that bad. But im from a a city in California where average rent for a two bedroom is 1700. In the heart of San Francisco a studio runs about 2400.

  38. I live in Central Chicago. 450sf studio. $1000 rent. NYC is insane!! No city is worth what you pay in NYC, sorry. It is a city for rich people. Others should live in New Jersey or Pennsylvania and commute.

  39. I would not pay that unless I had an excellent job. If I had that good a job Id move to Connecticutt. 😃 Im in Florida and I paid 600 for a 1360 sq foot condo in an excellent location at my last residence. I pay 749 now for 880 sq feet

  40. I honesty pay $1,500 for a 339sqft micro studio in Denver,co. I feel the pain but it’s worth it to be in the heart of everything.

  41. Have been looking for a man easy nyc diagram of neighbourhoods for awhile, would it be too much trouble to ask for a link to the diagram somewhere? Just started following your channel for nyc content. Cheers from Australia!

  42. My real issue would just be so many windows looking into my house. Curtains are essential, but then there's no light, so for me, finding the rare place that was not lined up with anyone's windows would be the hardest part of finding a place. Other than that, that apt. has what it needs and is fine considering the location and conveniences.

  43. That seems quite a bit but for a TWO bedroom apt maybe it’s right on. I know that NYC is expensive but that is really insane. Nicely decorated though… good job 👍

  44. WOW! That's the payment for a huge house and two cars in Atlanta per month. You used the space wisely. I loved when you said "down the hall". Sir….you wished it was a hall.😁😁😁

  45. Omg $2,700! Lol I think I just had a mini stroke! I gasped so loud I scared my cat!😂😂🤣🤣 you decorated it very nice, I do like the seperate living space/TV room. Lol now I have to go pet my cat malicefent who's looking at me all crazy!

  46. That would be my worst nightmare, small little living space. I prefer at least loft style apartments, but single family homes are preference. I can't think of a reason I'd even want to visit NYC, let alone over pay for a place I'd hate. But the world needs all type of people so enjoy life how you choose

  47. So much to say that I’m finding it tough to start. Let me begin by saying no one from the city or the other boroughs would ever pay that much money for a shoe box nor would they move in even if it was free. These videos on non-New Yorkers moving to Manhattan and spending ton to live in a ridiculously small space is false advertising because only people from Kansas or Idaho or wherever you’re from would do this. If you are making coin you should be living in a way better place. If you don’t and still want to live in the city instead of one of the boroughs you still have options like signing up for a lottery apartment and targeting recently vacant rent stabilized apartments. My GF who makes under 40K a year is in a 600sf lottery apartment in which she pays $1200 a month and my friend pays $2700 for a 2BR in Battery Park. She got hers last year and my buddy got his 4 years ago. As for me, I pay $2200 for an 800sf rent stabilized 1BR with terrace, working elevators, doorman and in building laundry in Harlem. I just moved in in April. If you look intelligently you can still find deals.

  48. $2700 was my guess before the price was revealed. It’s a great deal for the neighborhood. I would rent this place! Though I live in SF so I am used to paying a lot for a small space. You make good use of the space.

  49. Wow! Your income must be pretty high too. No, don't think I would ever want to live in NY even if I had a bucket of $$. And with no elevator & 4th floor, I could go out perhaps 2x a wk. Age & disability.
    Glad you are young with plenty of energy & the big bucks. 😁

  50. No I wouldn't. I have a 3br home I pay 1,250 a month. No it's not n.y. but I get alot more for my money. I use to live in n.y. but this is exactly why I moved. Don't miss it at all

  51. $2,700 is a serious steal for that flat! You asked would I pay that? For the heart of Greenwich and that much space, absolutely. Gotta be honest with ya tho bro – I’m OBSESSED with Tiny House and Minimalism videos and you guys have SOOO much potential with that place. Convertible furniture, vertical storage (you’re window bays are DEEP shelve the one and get more “kids” – plants are freaking great for tiny living and your overall air quality. You’re not looking at much to begin with so USE the space with open shelving and plants. Really think you’re missing the monochromatic “sparkle” opportunity too. Your mirrors are great! Check out “Public Goods” online and their products. CHEAP and incredible quality and incredibly pure – with a gorgeous design palette that allows them to become decor! Live big by living small bro. Last idea, in your living room, consider painting the TV wall (probably that one) a variant shade of dark grey).

  52. I thought you were gonna say $1,600. No fucking way would I pay that much to live in a small space and look at someone else's windows. Sheesh. Buy a house and commute across the GW Bridge. This "location" isn't all that.

  53. Considering where the apt is, if I could afford it, sure. I noticed the high ceiling, if u had help/ladder, some pics would help. Maybe hang a lamp w/long chain and drape it. Plants make a room nice, maybe start an ivy up by window. Nice, though, at least u have option to go hang on roof instead of back down stairs. Enjoy, be safe.

  54. My rent is only $480 a month! But my apartment is an open space so it looks and feels bigger. I can’t believe the high rent your paying just to live in a shoebox!

  55. 2700 dollarsssssss wtf USD hell to the naw when the appartment is that much all the stores in the area charge more and it's harder to save money omg I would do some high low end neighborhoods like on the border line between a good neighborhood and a bad one that's were I find the pricing is more reasonable but 2700 a month hell you can buy some land and put a tiny home on it lol no shade if you like it I love it would I do it nawwwwww
