Confucius says: “He who lives in New York City understands that space is a luxury.” OK, he didn’t. But he may as well have. The eight-million plus residents have chosen lifestyle over personal space, which they purchase at a premium.

This tells the tale of the city’s fashionistas, many of whom have abandoned culinary pursuits in favour of clothing storage. If New York is a world where shoe and oven racks are interchangeable and appliances co-opted as closets, then Ottawa offers substantial and affordable square footage with adequate storage space.
