WEEKENDEDITION An absolutely tiny apartment on the Upper West Side asking nearly half a million dollars isn’t anything new, but then most listings don’t “fold.”

The 450-square-foot foldable apartment has hit the market asking $469,000, according to Gothamist. Third-grade-teacher Eric Schneider purchased the West 73rd Street apartment for just $235,000 in 2005. Soon after, he hired architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects to renovate his apartment.

The architects added what looks like a large closet that turns the studio into a four-in-one unfolding box, with a bedroom, living room, office and closet all inside. [Gothamist] Christopher Cameron

    NOBODY in their right mind thinks 450sf is a desirable space to “live” in.Not worth it…even at half the ask.That being said…I’m sure there’ll be multiple offers.Go figure.
