We all know that fictional TV shows and movies set in New York take certain...errrr...editorial liberties when it comes to where their characters can afford to live. Makes sense—would Friends have been able to employ such a wide variety of storylines if Monica and Rachel had shared a tiny studio? We think not. So what's the actual value of this NYC real estate? Supercompressor asked a realtor to estimate the current prices of many of your favorite fictional NYC pads.
Big: $2.3 million
This Soho loft at 85 Grand Street would be worth a few mill? Not too bad for a ten-year-old kid.
Rosemary's Baby: $3,222/sq ft
The famous Dakota building on the Upper West Side was creepy enough for the devil's spawn and posh enough for a multitude of celebrities in real life.
Sex and the City: $600,000
Carrie's place is perhaps the most realistic of all, price-wise. Or maybe not, considering we all know Carrie spent most of her writer's salary on shoes.
The Cosby Show: $11 million
Although the show is set in Brooklyn Heights, the Cosby house is actually in the West Village and recently sold for $11 million.
Will & Grace: $700,000
Will and Grace also lived on the Upper West Side, in a fab pre-war, Riverside Dr space.
There are five more to see including the homes from Seinfeld, Gossip Girl and Wall Street. See them all at Supercompressor.
