The Washington Post Sunday - - ARTS & STYLE -

Per­haps the most egre­gious ex­am­ple of liv­ing out­side your means, Rachel and Mon­ica’s sup­pos­edly rent-con­trolled apart­ment would be way too ex­pen­sive for two 20-some­things. Chan­dler called it a “freak­ing steal”; we call it a freak­ing lie.

Lo­ca­tion: West Vil­lage (90 Bed­ford St.) Char­ac­ter: Mon­ica Geller Room­mates: At dif­fer­ent points — Rachel Green, Phoebe Buf­fay and Chan­dler Bing Jobs: Chef (Mon­ica); wait­ress, buyer (Rachel) Show’s claimed cost: A rent-con­trolled sub­let from Mon­ica's grand­mother; rent not spec­i­fied. Real-life cost: $4,500 per month for an in­cred­i­bly spa­cious two-bed­room
