Why I could never live in Manhattan

Greg over at Daddy Types had a link to this article in the New York Times about this crazy guy who renovated his 400 square foot apartment while living in it. He is incredibly inspiring in his diy-ness, but also reminds me of why I would never live in Manhattan. They can get practically the entire space in one shot, and that is truly frightening. And he paid $220k for it, which is a steal in Manhattan. Dude, I can get a very nice house over 5 times the size of his for that price here! It's insane!

Of course, now he's going to have a baby and it sounds like they have not really faced up to the dilemma of where they are going to put him. Good luck with that folks. Sure he can sleep with you, but you have a LOFT BED eight feet in the air! Perhaps they can put bedrails on it to keep their infant from taking a nasty tumble in the middle of the night...

Wow, that's a nice place, but I agree that keeping a baby there is going to be a challenge. I also don't want to be the sleep-deprived one carrying the baby up the ladder.
