Here’s How Much The Apartments In Your Favorite Rom-Coms Actually Cost

For anyone who can’t help but wonder how expensive Carrie and Big’s dream apartment is. It's pretty obvious that most movie and TV characters would never be able to afford their fancy apartments in real life. I don't care what Monica says — no way would she be able to pay for that "rent-controlled" apartment. Anyway, ForRent.com found out how much some of the most iconic homes from rom-coms would cost today, and it's equally shocking and annoying. Here are some of the best ones: NBC Carrie and Big's apartment in the Sex and the City movie: $40–$50 million Carrie wasn't kidding when she said she "died and went to real estate heaven" when she first saw the penthouse apartment she and Big bought at the beginning of the first movie. The exterior shown in the movie is real, and it's located across from Central Park, at 1010 Fifth Avenue. But the inside you saw in the movie was filmed in a four-story walk-up on 62nd Street that costs $190,000 a month to rent, and $40–$50 million to buy. Dead, indeed. HBO Films Marisa's apartment in Maid in Manhattan: $1,300 a month One of J.Lo's most classic film roles actually showed a realistic side of New York City real estate. Her two-bedroom Bronx apartment at E. 175th Street between Grand Concourse and Jerome Avenue in the movie would cost $1,300 a month today. Columbia Pictures View Entire List ›
