1990s to 2000s

Se­in­feld (1989-1998)

The Washington Post Sunday - - ARTS & STYLE -

As suc­cess­ful as co­me­dian Jerry Se­in­feld be­came in real life, his “Se­in­feld” char­ac­ter wasn’t as high on the com­edy food chain, lead­ing us to ques­tion his spa­cious one-bed­room. Although the ever-in­fa­mous “rent con­trol” claim was made, it still seems fishy that he would pay one-third of the av­er­age price. Funny in­deed.

Lo­ca­tion: Up­per West Side (129 W. 81st St.) Char­ac­ter: Jerry Se­in­feld Job: Co­me­dian Show’s claimed cost: Rent-con­trolled; another apart­ment in his build­ing opens up for $400 per month. Real-life cost: $1,550 per month for a one-bed­room in 1993
