After all, 400 square feet is palatial, by NYC standards! New Yorkers have a markedly different definition of what it means to live large in a small space and they have been adapting to limited space for hundreds of years.

Here are six genuinely tiny spaces that prove New Yorkers are taking this movement to the next level…

5. Using every nook and cranny
