Manhattan is a place where the majority of people live in tiny apartments with 2 or 3 roommates that they are forced to have. There is one kitchen and one bathroom for all the inhabitants in an apartment.

This is called an ideal situation for many.

Well, my grandmother was receiving a pension in Leningrad in Soviet Union and she lived right in the center of the city in a big room that is the size of a whole apartment in Manhattan. This room was one of many rooms in her apartment with one kitchen and one bathroom. How many poor, old ladies get to live in a big room right in the center of Manhattan?

You see, before critiquing Soviet Union Americans should have looked at Manhattan.
