Decorate An Apartment In F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Style – Monica’s Place

Last time we wrote about Central Perk, a coffee shop that all the friends use to hang out all the time. Today we are going to write about Monica’s apartment. All the six friends use to live in that apartment in the time of the show.
Also, almost every Christmas and Thanksgiving episode was taken in Monica’s apartment.

Monica Geller’s apartment is one of the most famous TV apartments of all times. This apartment belongs to the Monica’s grandma who let her to stay there after she moved to Florida. That story explains a fact that Monica could afford such an expensive apartment working as a chef.

It’s an interesting fact that two doors, the one to bedroom and guest room were fake entries. On the other side of the wall was a set of the Central Perk and the bedrooms were only put together when it was needed.

The apartment is at 90 Bedford Street in New York and right across the apartment of Chandler and Joey.
