Living in New York City is a dream for many young adults, but the Pure House apartment in Brooklyn appeals even more to the Millennial desire for connection, meaningful experiences, fun and of course, freedom of choice.

People must apply to live in the apartment, which is said to house a "highly curated community of like-minded individuals." Unlike many residences for young people, this one puts an emphasis on fostering socially and spiritually mature individuals through dinner parties and guided meditation sessions.

The dorm-like community welcomes people who are new to the city and gives a fair chance to newcomers who have income but no rental history—there's also no credit check required and no 12-month lease. Instead, new Pure House members are only required to sign a 30-day membership agreement and pay for shared accommodation with other like-minded young people with big dreams.
