New Yorkers have always lived in small spaces, but city living could be taken the extreme thanks to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s new plans for 300-square-foot “micro” apartments.The units, which will be built in Kips Bay, are about the size of a large walk-in closet. And closets could be one amenity missing in the “micro” units.
