What's The Tiniest Apartment You Could Live In?
Nobody would accuse Mayor Menino's administration of going quietly into the night. While twelve candidates vie to replace Menino, his operatives are at work planning living spaces to attract young talent to the area. The Mayor's pushing for construction of micro-sized units of housing — as small as 450 square feet — within 1 mile of transit stops. Jim and Margery asked callers if they'd be willing to hunker down in one-room dwellings, or if they're currently giving it a shot.
