How much would this cost in Hoboken?

2/8/2008:

Here’s a little Friday fun a Hoboken411 reader sent me a few days ago.

I’m sure many have received this email already, and it’s probably a scam, but it’s still funny nonetheless.

Toronto’s smallest house is for sale!

It’s nothing short of a ‘Glorified Tent’ .. or is it?

If:

  • You live alone or with one other person (or an extremely small dog) .. or if
  • You don’t have much stuff (barely more than a homeless person) .. or if
  • You miss that cute little apartment you lived in while teaching English in Japan

THEN THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU ! !

This house, located near the intersection of Dufferin Street and Rogers Road is believed to be Toronto’s smallest house. Occupying what used to be a driveway, it’s a one bedroom, one bathroom home that sits on a parcel of land 7.25 feet (2.2 metres) wide and 113.67 feet (34.6 metres) long and has an interior area of just under 300 square feet (under 28 square metres).

It’s got room for a keg. It could be a bachelor pad.
