Aw...the NY Times has one of those cutesy stories about Three Men and Their Baby, the baby being a shower that had not been installed. That's not all...
From the first day, the conversion of the loft was a job in itself, and much of the money they made during the day went toward supplies — paint, wood and innumerable tools — that would turn the loft into a nice, livable space.
Lacking beds, they slept on the floor, and on cold nights they lay near the windows in expectation of eventual sunlight. There was no kitchen, and after a while the women at the local Polish deli started giving the young men funny looks when they came in twice a day and asked if the women would please put their borscht in the microwave.
Not once in this story does the Times question why this "living space" came without any of these things. Nor did they mention the fact that converting an industrial space into a residence without permits is dangerous and illegal. The thinking is something like: As long as you can publish a funny hipster fixer-upper story, who cares if they die sometime later? It will be just be more news to cover!
