Default You think your apartment is cramped?

100,000 people in Hong Kong live in 40 square-foot cubicle rooms. Warning: You may get claustrophobic looking at these overhead photos.

And it gets worse.

Hong Kong, one of the world's richest cities, is abuzz with a luxury property boom that has seen homes exchanged for record sums.

But the wealth of the city has a darker side, with tens of thousands priced out of housing altogether and forced to live in the most degrading conditions.

These pictures by British photographer Brian Cassey capture the misery of people - some estimates put the figure as high as 100,000 - who are forced to live in cages measuring just 6ft by 2 1/2ft.

How does this size compare to the cupboard under the stairs?

The first link looks exactly like the dorms at some racetracks (I won't name which ones) the ones here at the one we are at now are 10 x 10 sq ft lol the horses at most tracks get bigger accommodations ... The standard stall is 12 x 12 sq ft.

This is mad though, never seen anything like that before. Just shared it with someone I know who lives in Hong Kong, interested to see if he has heard of it! Poor people.
