New York City apartments are pretty much known for being high in price and not that great in quality. Yes, even in some of the wealthiest neighborhoods, like the Upper East Side. While television shows like Gossip Girl tend to focus on the glamorous lives of more affluent residents, TikToker @taryntino21 showed what living amongst the elite is like — especially when you’re not nearly as well off.

“What it’s like to live on the fabulous Upper East Side when you’re not a squillionaire like your neighbors,” she said with a fake posh accent. “Do you like cabinet space? Me neither. I have never ever been able to open this.” 

Her kitchen was so small that the oven blocked the under-sink cabinet. 

“In a rush? Don’t shower. It’s going to take at least 15 minutes for that water to become lukewarm at best,” she joked as the Sex and the City theme song played.  

Then @taryntino21 looked out her window and pointed to the surrounding fare. 

“See that restaurant? I can’t afford it,” she said. “That restaurant? I can’t afford it. That restaurant shooed me out like a stray cat… because I can’t afford it.” 

The hilarious video garnered 17.3 million views on TikTok

“This is so damn real,” one person said

“This is amazing, your narration is so good,” another wrote

“Would watch the heck out of this show,” a user commented
