The micro-units on display in Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers, may be works of architectural imagination, but a growing number of New Yorkers are happily creating and inhabiting minuscule spaces that are both highly functional and immensely attractive. On Tuesday, July 30th, Constance Rosenblum, a reporter for the Real Estate section of The New York Times, former editor of the paper’s City section and author of the new book Habitats: Private Lives in the Big City (NYU Press, 2013), leads a discussion with Sturgis Warner and Jonathan Cerullo, longtime theater professionals who occupy such apartments and whose lives and homes are profiled in her book.

The event is co-sponsored by the Citizens Housing & Planning Council and New York University Press, and presented in conjunction with Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers.
