There are places in the world where a little goes a long way. And then there are places, like Manhattan, where a lot goes just a little way. A friend of mine, a successful advertising executive, discovered this when he recently moved to New York and decided to follow the mantra of “location, location, location” and plunked as much money as he could toward a place there.
I won’t reveal how much he spent but will say it was … up there.
Then I see pictures of his place on Facebook and … wow … it was really … tiny. You know that apartment on Friends that Monica (a wannabe chef) and Rachel (a one-time coffee barista) had in Manhattan? His pad was maybe half that size. Apparently the apartments in Friends have been mocking New Yorkers since 1994. Anyway, my friend didn’t even have a normal fridge, he had (temporarily, he said, until he found something suitable) two mini fridges stacked on each other. Good grief, Charlie Brown.
For people with small spaces and places, like my dear New Yorker pal, the very slim LG LRBP1031 refrigerator may just be a suitable alternative to dorm room style food storage. Skinny (23.5” wide) and nearly 68” tall (like a model!), this fridge is 10 cubic feet and is 24” deep – which matches most counter depths (like a model!). The freezer is on the bottom and has three see-thru drawers. The fridge portion includes two tempered glass shelves and two vegetable crispers.
Plus, this fridge has the bells and whistles of a grander fridge. It comes in either Titanium (whoo!) or white, has a door open alarm, an energy saving vacation mode and is designed with vents on every shelf for even air distribution and longer-lasting food freshness.
Reviews have been pretty glowing for the slick and sleek LG LRBP1031 Fridge, so it may well be worth the ticket price of $599 for the white and $799 for the Titanium.
