$2,200-a-month NYC apartment has shower in the living room
It’s a known fact that living in New York City is expensive. Rent is sky-high for an itty bitty apartment in most parts of the city, and most places come with their own fair share of problems.
But this one takes the cake.
One real estate agent took to TikTok to share a video of a New York City apartment that has a shower in the living room—leaving non-New Yorkers stunned by the monthly rent price of $2,200.
Claudia Degteva showed off the place in the clip. which soon after posting went viral.
The layout of the apartment includes a walk-in shower that has a clear glass door.
“When you pay $2,200/ and have to shower in the living room,” reads the text overlay of the video.

In the caption, she asked her followers, “Would you?”
At the start of the TikTok, the real estate agent shows that the toilet is in a separate room.
Then, the camera pans to the kitchen which features a stove, a refrigerator, a sink, and cabinets.
The biggest flaw of this apartment is glaringly the shower in the living room, which had it not been for the shower, seems to be a pretty good find with two windows and a fireplace.
