Do we smell a new living trend on our hands? Judging from this recent Craigslist ad (which we’re not really sure should be taken at face value), it looks like dumpster living might just be the big next thing in NYC real estate. The listing on the popular classified advertisements site offers up an “art deco hipster retro mini apt” for $1,200 a month or $200 a night. While the succinct description doesn’t mention much more, the trash receptacle abode does bear a striking resemblance to the one owned by dumpster denizen Gregory Kloehn, wouldn’t you agree?

Adding to the oddity of the dumpster rental listing is the specified renter type stipulated. According to the ad, which was posted this Wednesday, the rentee is specifically seeking a “hipster type” for the one-room dumpster located in Williamsburg. In other words: No yuppies please!

Of course, if you’re looking for an eco-friendly abode, fret not because this could be just the place for you. Underneath an alluring shot of the backside of the forest-green dumpster, reads the following creative description: “This art deco hipster retro mini apt from a converted dumpster is green friendly and sustainable. And trendy.”
