1. THE FLIGHT AGENT SoHo, NYC
HBO’s hit show Max “The Flight Attendant” named nine Emmy stars Kaley Cuoco as the main character, whose life is turned upside down by a murder. As Cassie, she needs friends to help her figure out what happened, which leads her to one of the most fascinating TV apartments in New York City. She takes comfort with her best friend Ani, who lives in a large, state-of-the-art SoHo loft with a few distinctive touches, including high wooden ceilings, dramatic archways leading to the kitchen and bedroom, and Manhattan’s ultimate eccentric architectural design – a glass shower located in the middle of the living room.
2. THE UNDOING Fifth Avenue (Billionaires’ Row), NYC (HBO / Warner Bros)
“The Undoing” is HBO’s 2020 two-Emmy-nominated hit miniseries that stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant as a wealthy couple whose lives are turned upside down when a murder occurs. Their Upper East Side brownstone is gorgeous, but the penthouse where his wealthy father (Donald Sutherland) lives is the stuff some dreams are made of. Located at 1215 Fifth Avenue, on Billionaires’ Row near the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this is a New York gem. Interiors were actually shot at 1107 Fifth, an apartment with floor-to-ceiling windows, crown molding, room for a piano (and a huge dance floor) in the living room and two bedrooms, four bathrooms.

5. LOVE OF SYLVIE Harlem, New York (Amazon Prime)
Set in the 1950s and 1960s, “Sylvie’s Love” was nominated for an Emmy (Outstanding Television Movie). Starring Tessa Thompson and Nnamdi Asomugha as cursed and steeped lovers of the then Harlem jazz scene, most of the film was shot in Los Angeles. But Sylvie lives in a Harlem brownstone, which would likely be located on 120th Street and Lenox Avenue, on Astor Row (130th Street between Fifth and Lenox), or on 137th Street in historic Dorrance Brooks Square.

And while the basement apartment in Manhattan where Beth’s rival / mentor / chess coach Benny lives, might be on the Upper West Side or the Village (you never know, but the Brown Stone above his house gives some clues), there is one thing go for it – there is plenty of space!
8. FRIENDS: THE MEETING (HBO / Warner Bros.)
While the show “Friends: The Reunion” actually reconstructed the iconic apartments in the same hall in which most of the gang members lived at one point or another on a soundstage, the current building is in Greenwich Village. at 90 Bedford Street. Nominated for three Emmy Awards, the series also known as “The One Where They Get Back Together” was actually filmed in Los Angeles, so the apartments in that building were not used. But the two iconic TV apartments were two bedrooms with spacious living rooms and kitchens, and one had a terrace.
