EXTAPT09.jpgThis Elliman listing is now online and ready to crush your soul! The realtors are offering this "brand new alcove studio with three, large, east-facing windows allowing for robust sunlight throughout the day" all for just $1,275/month. What else will you get for your hard earned rent money?

"Floors are contemporary dark-wood, and kitchen appliances are newly-installed, jet-black. Cabinet space is generous. Bathroom is new with rainforest showerhead. The building is a gut-renovated pre-war structure with laundry in the basement and a garden for exclusive use by tenants."

And while the "alcove" may look legitimate with whatever trick photography they used for this listing, the Daily News has a shocking photo spread that tells it like it is with aerial views. Let's take a closer look—the alcove is shown like this in the listing:

And here's what it looks like IRL. Yeah, that slight indentation at the top is an "alcove" in realtor speak now.

All in all the apartment—located at 14 Convent Avenue—is much smaller than the micro units, coming in at 100-square-feet... and that's basically all kitchen (and bathroom... at least there's a bathroom?).

UPDATE: The listing has been taken down, but here's a screenshot we got before it did.
