The current housing crisis — one that is being addressed by cities worldwide, but particularly in New York — is creating a skewed market. Recent reports in the New York Daily News and The Atlantic falsely assert that living in a modern micro-apartment causes substance abuse. 

Anyone familiar with the Citizens Housing and Planning Council’s (the authority on housing and demographics in New York City for more than 70 years) would know that regulations designed to prevent small-space living are now contributing to the housing shortage.
