New York apartment advertises shower in the kitchen and people share why it's a good idea

July 16th, 2020

Paying $1650 a month for an apartment doesn’t sound outrageous, right? Sure, it’s a little on the spendy side for an apartment, but what if I told you that the apartment was located in New York City? Now, it sounds like a steal! Well…there’s just one catch…

The shower in this studio apartment happens to be located…in the kitchen.

Yep. You’re not misreading the above line. The shower is literally in the studio’s kitchen. The apartment is located in the super trendy neighborhood of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, so the price tag is actually seriously appealing. You just…have to shower where you cook!

The listing was first brought to the world’s attention by Twitter user angelicaalzona when she shared this Tweet.

The bizarre studio apartment was listed for rent on the website Street Easy and even though the shower in the kitchen is seriously quirky, the listing actually tries to make light of the situation. In fact, whoever wrote the listing is actually quite hilarious because…well…you have to be if you’re going to sell this place!

“Luxuries or weird ??! Kitchen or Bathroom vibes? You decide!” says the description in the listing.

It’s not like the shower was put into a corner or hiding behind a wall in the kitchen. Oh no! It’s literally smack dab in the middle of the kitchen. Right in between your fridge and your sink! Think of all the time you’d save showering AND eating breakfast at the same time!

“This is A old School loft apartment in Williamsburg, Weird but good priced if you don’t care (or do care and wanna be a weirdo!)” the listing continues. “This price for a spacious loft/apartment is rare for the area! Unit comes with separate kitchen with windows and sectioned off sleeping area with toilet.”

“All you gotta do to call this home is deal with this bathtub situation :-),” the listing says.

Would a shower in the kitchen be a deal-breaker for you? For many, that’s probably a ‘yes,’ however, to no one’s surprise, the oddball studio apartment didn’t stay vacant for long! It was actually rented less than 2 weeks after the hilarious posting was shared online. Apparently showering in the kitchen is totally cool with those people, and you know what? Who are we to judge?

Of course, the studio apartment’s listing left the entire internet baffled. People were wondering who on earth would want to live there? And also who in the world actually designed this bizarre layout? Was the shower in the kitchen totally on purpose or a complete afterthought? We’re confused.
