Green, 67, said her brand-new aPodment offered more light and more stylish finishes than the one-bedroom apartments she looked at in her price range.

She pays $850 a month for a sixth-floor room that features a sleeping loft, a private toilet and shower, a kitchenette with a sink, fridge and granite countertop, a skylight, two windows and a sliding-glass door to a small private deck. The loft brings the total square footage to 200.

She shares the kitchen with seven other tenants on the second floor. She said she keeps fit walking up and down stairs — there’s no elevator in the building.

“I’m a minimalist,” she said. “I think this is a wonderful thing.”
