(2015-present)

The Washington Post Sunday - - ARTS & STYLE -

Some New York apart­ments are the size of a closet, while some lit­er­ally are clos­ets — like the room where Kimmy lives in the dwelling she shares with her room­mate, Ti­tus. But liv­ing in rooms that are not legally “rooms” is pretty par for the course for broke dream­ers try­ing to make it in the Big Ap­ple.

Lo­ca­tion: Green­point, Brook­lyn Char­ac­ter: Kimmy Sch­midt Room­mate: Ti­tus An­drome­don Jobs: Per­sonal as­sis­tant, re­tail at a Christ­mas-themed store (Kimmy); ac­tor, themed-restau­rant worker, cruise-ship per­former (Ti­tus) Show’s claimed cost: Any­where from $0 to $950. “We owe Lil­lian two months’ back rent, which is $950,” Ti­tus tells Kimmy. Real-life cost: $1,800 to $2,600 per month, but not spec­i­fied for an un­der-the-ta­ble base­ment apart­ment
