We’ve seen apartments with showers proudly displayed in the kitchen before (like this $1,795/month unit on the Lower East Side), but now city dwellers who can’t afford a separate bathroom can get an upgrade–in the form of a fancy clawfoot tub in the kitchen.

EV Grieve noticed two listings in the East Village at 328 East 6th Street for studios that seem to tout their “tenement roots” by overemphasizing the “beautiful claw foot tub in the living space” (and by living space they mean directly next to the sink where you’ll wash your vegetables). They’re available for $1,800 and $1,900/month, which, according to the listings, is “the best deal for the dollar in this hood.”

The slightly larger unit has another tenement-era feature–a tuberculosis window. These interior windows were thought to cure the disease by bringing light and air into the cramped quarters.

Interestingly, the listing calls these units “1 bedroom/studio office.” The larger unit may have a separate sleeping alcove, but we’re pretty sure “office” is a major stretch. Other “charming old school” features include black lacquered hard wood floors, wood countertops, and decorative plaster moldings.
