I have never written a letter to The New York Times, but when I read the article about Zach Motl's tiny apartment, I decided to send one off. Unbelievably, the newspaper decided to print it! Here it is in all it's glory above, and here's the text below:
Re “A Roomy 178 Square Feet,” by Penelope Green (Feb. 11):
No matter the size of his space (at left), I wholeheartedly disagree with Zach Motl’s assessment that you don’t want to cook much in a small space. When I lived in a 265-square-foot studio, I cooked often. On one occasion, I even prepared a lobster dinner for six; while the apartment smelled a little fishy for days, I wouldn’t trade the experience of a home-cooked meal with friends for anything.
