Storage and closet space isn't a luxury that most New Yorkers can afford. Instead, most city-dwellers are doomed to squeezing their clothing, shoes and accessories into a joke of a storage area.
Interestingly, Jonathan J. Miller, the president of Miller Samuel, a real estate appraisal company, told The New York Times that "in general, regular closets are 3 by 5 feet, while walk-in closets are 5 by 8 feet." How does yours measure up to these averages?
Well, apparently not all Americans are as space-starved as New Yorkers.
