In Housing Crunch, Some New Yorkers Turn to Unique Accommodations

New Yorkers are often forced to get creative when it comes to housing. Blame rising rents, out-of-control home sale prices and the limited availability fueling the city’s housing crisis.

For the past few months, City Limits has sought out New Yorkers in unique living arrangements to find out why they live where they live. We homed in on three people, all Bronx residents, with three very different accommodations: an old RV, a two-story houseboat and a room in a spartan warehouse. All three said they could not afford the kinds of homes they truly wanted, whether it’s an oceanside cottage or a simple studio apartment. It’s a sentiment most New Yorkers can relate to.

Here are their experiences. ([link removed])
