NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City's billionaire mayor says he lived in a tiny apartment for 10 years.
Michael Bloomberg said Friday on WOR Radio that his former home was roughly the size of the micro-units the city plans to build next year.
He slept on a convertible couch and recalls it was "a pain" to remove the pillows and make the bed.
It wasn't as convenient as the state-of-the art Murphy bed he demonstrated for reporters Tuesday while announcing a design contest winner for the mirco-units.
Back in the day, he also built and stained his own bookshelves.
To his annoyance, the shelves warped. Bloomberg said that for 10 years, his books "rocked back and forth."
