it's like Friends but a lot more racially integrated and sometimes meaner

Nah, they're all soccer moms being driven around in Towncars, with a few crappy apartments thrown in, in my part at least.

Most of us leave our apartments a lot more often.

Or some of us leave our apartments a lot less often due to not having enough money to go out to the coffee shop all the damn time.

yes, exactly.

don't let anyone ever say otherwise.

now excuse me i have to go buy some 400$ pair of shoes on my freelancer writer's salary in my UES side apartment.

don't let the jealously hit you too hard.

oh yeah and being pretentious is a very important life skill there, otherwise you're eaten alive
22nd-Dec-2010 11:20 pm (UTC)
Nah. But it is EXACTLY like Sex and the City.
22nd-Dec-2010 11:51 pm (UTC)
More like Die Hard imo

It's also just like Kate and Allie.

k & a is a great show.

though their apt never made any sense. they lived in a basement, but it had an upstairs and a basement of its own. and a back door area.

The best serious answer I can give:

It's hard to get a sense of what the city is like from friends because they hardly ever leave their standing sets. But basically, it's hard to imagine that they could ever afford those apartments on their salaries. You'd generally have to have a total apartment income of at LEAST $150k to afford those. And that coffee shop would have been a lot more crowded.

except, duh, they had episodes to explain why they had those apartments :P

That depends - is England anything like the Full Monty? Dr. Who? Love Actually? East Enders?

If you're wealthy, mildly racist, and don't get out much, sure, it can be.

Congrats! You've won the internet.

The apartments are actually a lot bigger.

If it is, you're doing it wrong.
24th-Dec-2010 05:45 am (UTC)
...or right. If there's some kind of magic that allows me to have an apartment that big while spending my days tooling around with my friends and drinking coffee at a cool spot, I want to learn it.

and whatever you do, DO NOT LEAVE MANHATTAN.

There are roving gangs of Nomads in Queens, the Bronx and Brooklyn just like Road Warrior.
Staten Island has a really bad problem with alligators and bears.
