90-Square-Foot Apartment May Give You a Panic Attack

The first night that professional organizer Felice Cohen stayed in her 90-square-foot apartment (it measures 12 feet by 7) overlooking Central Park, she had a panic attack. That's kind of how we felt watching this 5 minute video of her talking about her apartment, in her apartment, with a visitor in her apartment. The good news is, after the first night she never had another (panic attack, not visitor), and she says she doesn't feel the slightest bit stressed about her $700 a month rent. Probably because making all that Shrinky-Dink art is relaxing. Seriously. She's been there three years. Goddammit, it's cozy! Watch (after the jump)!

A commenter on the Daily Mail, where they think Americans who live in tiny apartments are crazy, would beg to differ.

I'm sorry but I don't agree with this, it is too small for her and it actually offended me looking at the pictures and seeing how cramped it is, I really hope she finds somewhere bigger as no one should live like this it is an outrage...I will be writing to her and asking her to leave as soon as possible.

Lady, you'd never make it in New York City.

She is a horrible organizer.  She could install shelves and make better use of space.  She needs to think in terms of cubic feet instead of square feet, and go higher.  How is she a professional organizer.  Must be clients out there that don't know any better.

Sometimes people don't just normally stay calm when thereare certain things happen that may cause panic. During the situation be sure toit that you are staying cool and don’t be panic because that is also one thingthat may lead to nervousness.

Surely people who suffer from fear of traveling in an escalator or fear of staying in a cramped place will get panic attacks when put in a 90 square foot apartment. I don't know what phobia is this, but surely many people do get panic attacks when squeezed inside a small room.

It is best toknow what is important to do first if anything might happen in case ofemergency. You don't have to panic; you must know the first thing you have todo. In that case you might prevent any panic from yourself. Panic Away Review
