This Is How Much Monica's Apartment In "FRIENDS" Would Cost
Most of our favourite TV characters live in the apartments of our ~dreams.~ There's Carrie Bradshaw and her incredible New York walk-up, Blair Waldorf and her penthouse, and of course, Monica Geller's shared apartment with Richael. The one that basically made you wanna move out of home.
Fans of the series would remember that Monica, (a chef), and Rachel, (a stylist), only paid a meek $200/month for their 1,1125-square-foot West Village apartment. But in reality, there's no way she could actually afford to live there. Not on a chef's wage, anyway.
According to Coinage, the 2017 rent for a similar space would be a whopping $4,500 PER month. And that's just rent. No food, no drinks, no Central Perks.
Unfortunately, none of our favourite '90s shows were honest about the cost of living. Carrie Bradshaw's $750/month stylish East Side pad, IRL would cost you $2,800/month.
Yeah, nah. Not here for it.
