Micro-apartments the way forward in New York

With space increasingly at a premium, developers in the US city now have an innovative solution: micro-apartments.

    New York City, like many of the world's megacities, is overcrowded. Currently the city's population stands at seven million people, and that number is only growing.

    Space, however, remains at a premium, and so many of those coming to the city find it difficult to find a place to call home.

    Developers are now looking at an innovative solution that's popular in Tokyo and Mumbai: micro-apartments.
