I always just assumed that Chloe ran some scam to get a rent controlled apartment.

Apropos of nothing, Richard Castle's apartment is *so* pimp (AND he can actually afford it).

George Jefferson was a successful businessman, owner of multiple dry-cleaning locations, and lived in Manhattan in the 70s. If anything, he could have had a bigger place.

Fissile: BadReligion: JolobinSmokin: Thank you for explaining to us low level non-Yorkers what is and isn't reality for an apartment.

I can only count to tomato apartment

Considering how supposedly great NYC is, the average apartment is seemingly terrible. I would never consider living there unless I was a multimillionaire.

=============

There are nice apartments in Manhattan.......rents start at $3K.


I did say "average apartment". I understand there are nice apartments there, but they are for people with 5 roommates of who make at least $250,000/yr.

The 20-something girls-Chloe and June-live in a massive two-bedroom apartment in what looks to be a nice area of Manhattan.

Granted I know nothing of New York real estate, but it never looked "massive" to me.


jaylectricity: Whatever, that show is a f*cking riot. Too bad they've gone from 5-6 million viewers in the first season down to 2-3 per episode. This will probably be the last season.


This. The show consistently surprises me. It's too bad it'll probably get cancelled since the 2nd season has shown marked improvement over the first. Which maybe people would notice if they SHOWED THE EPISODES IN ORDER.

Generation_D: Wait wait.  You mean we're supposed to care that a show about NYC is unrealistic, when the networks based out of NYC have spent years unrealistically portraying every other city/area in America?


You know what show is surprisingly accurate? Cougar Town. For realsies. The show's setting is modeled on Sarasota, and having grown up around there, it's freakish how closely they nailed the area, even down to the propensity of kids from there to all go to USF Sarasota because they're incapable of cutting the apron strings.

Well, there's poor poor, and there's TV poor.

Didn't always used to be that way; the Evans family actually looked like they were living in a tenement on Good Times.

True. The bits I have seen of CSI make it look like it is filmed in a much older city, it looks nothing like Vegas.

Thanks for showing me the comparison of th.......

Oh, ya. There's no comparison.
See, I live in the valley of my state so I have NO idea. I can only guess.
Each house around me has acres of land.
So, if I click on your farking link, maybe SHOW me a NY apartment instead of showing whats fake about a fake show.

Surool: We're getting into the realities of a show that has been shelved now?


It hasn't been cancelled. For some reason ABC got the idea to show it twice a week. That worked about as well as expected so they're back to once a week

At least Friends tried to explain away Monica's apartment as actually her grandmothers rent controlled place she inherited.

Odd that this common trope of broke twenty somethings living in huge apartments in a cool part of NY is the exact opposite of Dallas where a family of oil billionaires lived in one three bedroomed house.
