NEW YORK (PIX11) – In the constant struggle to land an affordable apartment in Manhattan, almost no torturous layout-oddity is beyond consideration, as evidenced by this Lower East Side pad that comes with a shower in the kitchen.

The 1-bedroom, 1-bath apartment at 27 Orchard has a stand-up shower about the size of a phone booth nestled beside the kitchen sink.  “This old world style apt is better than your average studio!” the post on reads.

But in New York City, where every square foot comes at an astounding premium, having to shower where you cook is actually a good thing, Lorence Dippolito of Misrahi Realty assures.  “Although the shower is in the kitchen, YES it’s in the kitchen, it has a separate room for your bed — so the kitchen/living area can easily accommodate a sofa and small table & chairs & more!”

No picture of the bedroom was provided, and Dippolito writes that it “will not fit more than a (twin?) bed.”  Still not filling out the rental application?  The best part is the price — just $1,795, and it may be negotiable.
