The Micropolis, the Metropolis

Last Tuesday, the City of Hudson Common Council adopted an amendment to the zoning law that would make 350 square feet the minimum size for an apartment. On Friday, an article appeared in the New York Times about a micro-apartment complex made of modular units being prefabricated at the Brooklyn Navy Yard to be assembled at 335 East 27th Street: "Home Shrunken Home."

The apartments, which are leasing for $2,000 to $3,000 a month, range from 260 to 360 square feet. To permit this building to be constructed, the current New York City zoning and density requirement, which sets the minimum apartment size at 400 square feet, had to be waived.
