To Live in a Tiny Lofted Studio Behind this LES Gallery

Posted on: July 21st, 2017 at 5:17 am by

Behind the non-descript MAW gallery on Henry Street is a cramped cubbyole studio. And it can now be yours.

It appears that the gallery listed the 300 square-foot studio on Craigslist, and currently seeks transient tenants. The furnished apartment features a lofted bed, futon, “exposed brick and a minimalist design.” There is also a doorway directly to the storefront gallery. According to the posting, the rent is $400 per week.

Given the rear-door location, the apartment comes with a strict set of instructions.

It is located in the back of a new trendy art gallery that opened last year. You enter the space via the main hallway and the building’s front door. Access to the gallery is prohibited unless during regular gallery hours, you may come visit us! From 12-6pm Friday-Sunday a gallery representative will be on location and can help with any of your questions and or needs.

No smoking
No parties or events

This is the heart of Chinatown! The apartment is on a wonderful and safe street with beautiful view of the One World Trade Center. It’s surprisingly quiet too, but located near a few fun bars (Mr. Fongs!) and wonderful restaurants, plus galleries!

Sounds like a nightmare.
