I'm sure the dumpsters in Brooklyn are nicer than those in Newark.

In the summer, you would be more comfortable sleeping in a locked car with the windows up.

From where? It's illegal as all hell to run a line to that.
Does he have a meter?
I'm guessing he occupies the ground for free as well, in a city where a parking space can easily run $400 a month.

I only dive in Camden.  With the real people.

Is this supposed to make NYC look "down in the dumps"?

batteries. made from potatoes, lemons, and scrap metals. all he needs is like five volts to charge his iPhone.

Where the hell does he park this thing? You can't just put something like that anywhere you feel like. Also, how does he run electricity to it? It's not like you can tap into any outlet you please. Where does the toilet flush to?

I realize it's a damn fluff piece but you would think they could have asked a few basic questions about this.

It's all fun and games until he gets picked up and crushed.

I wonder if bums go behind and shiat and piss like they do regular dumpsters.

This could work, I mean you park behind the right bakery and you get doughnuts delivered everyday in a nice plastic bag.

Well Brooklyn has never really recovered from losing the Dodgers.

I love how they said Red Hook is a nice area. Ten years ago, you couldn't pay me to live in Red Hook. Now the artists and hipsters have taken it over. Also NYC housing authority will be all over this by next week.

Small apartment that is mobile that contains a bed, toilet, shower and electricity hook ups.  I want to see this guy compete against Jeremy, Richard and James on the next Top Gear caravan challenge.

It totally flew right over my head. Now that I see it, I think it's pretty darn clever.

I've seen that place.  It is in the garden of the Pioneer Works art space (previously known as The Intercourse), not on the street.  And I'm assuming it is only an art exhibit, not where he actually stays.  Pioneer Works has an artist residency program, and that's where the guy actually sleeps.  The one time I walked into that dumpster, it was horribly hot in there.

I was stealing electricity before it was popular.

1. Give money to artist that creates unlivable, mock-residence to presumably highlight obvious urban housing cost problem
2. Get one less homeless artist on the street.
3. Mission accomplished.

"Trending Now" girl is cute, but what's with the hair?
 
2013-08-10 06:59:43 AM
Okay... maybe the scripts are blocked but some pics would have been helpful. Article wasn't very informative either and considering some of the comments here it seems it is also full of sh*t.

Is yahoo one of our featured partners?

OMG I can built a home out of a dumpster and live in a small space with bare essentals. This is kinda a new low in the tiny house movement.
 
2013-08-10 07:31:59 AM
Kloehn strategically added wheels to the bottom of his new home to give it mobility. Strategically? Don't they normally have wheels?

I think we've reached peak hipster.

Hipster dumpster resident is behind the times. All the really cool kids have been living in converted CONEX's for years:

So you're too hip to be a hipster? My mind is blown!

I thought it was because I don't dress like them and I hate their music, culture, and attitude, but whatever's clever.
 
2013-08-10 08:10:44 AM
Well I do like SOME of the music, but that's about it. My main beef with hipsters is that I don't like how they co-opt everyone else's subculture. In this case they are co-opting homeless culture for some reason.

This leads to a very important question.  In a match between hipsters and the Borg who would be more successful at co-opting the other's culture?

Watch the video guys, this isn't this Hipster's real home, it's only his "mobile home" when he visits NYC only less mobile...

/Hipsters still suck the life out of living

At least the Borg don't deny it...

shiat, I wish I could afford one of those.  Dumpster brand trash bins are top of the line.

this and that

I imagine cops will still harass, ticket and beat him like any other dumpster curmudgeon

Every time you use the word "dumpster" as a generic term rather than the brand name of a Demptser Dumpster(TM) an employee of the Dempster Sales company goes insane.

Keep up the good work.

No love for Zoidberg?

Of course not!

I like Zoidberg though. I wish he'd get a little respect.
