Looking for your next apartment and have plenty of cash to squander? Then why not grab yourself an apartment made famous from the likes of TV shows or owned by celebrities, then pretend to live it large like a Hollywood A-lister. Here’s an idea: invite your mates round and play out scenes from your favorite episodes of the series the apartment was filmed in. Like the Monica Geller rant scene (you know, the Chandler in the Box episode). Oh yes, crazy fun to be had!
Check out the following famous apartments which are either sold, available to buy or have the option to rent if one is that way inclined.

Whilst Carrie Bradshaw paid $750 per month… the apartment in real life went for $9.85 Million back in April this year.
With four stories and five bedrooms, I’m sure the current owners of 64 Perry Street, New York, are living the sex and the city dream.
2. 30 Rock – Liz Lemons Apartment – $2,000 -3,500 per month
The fictional apartment is actually in the place they said it would be – 160 Riverside Drive in the Upper West Side which would cost you around $2,000 – 3,500 a month.

6. Friends : Monica Gellar’s Apartment – $3,000 to $5,000 per month
As a pass me down from her Grandmother, the apartment was said to cost only $200 per month as it was rent controlled. This is highly possible as her Grandmother could have owned the apartment during the rent controlled period just before and after World War 2.
