We have watched this story play out in many different ways on television, from shows like “Friends,” to “Sex and the City,” to “Gossip Girl,” to “The Bold Type.” On television, New York is portrayed as a place where you can have your own apartment—even though you work part time—and where drinks don’t cost an entire hour’s wage. This is the magic of television and the magic of New York itself. “Broad City” is no different.

Size: 400 square feet
Years lived in: 3 years, renting

When Thomas moved into his studio three years ago, functionality and style were his primary concerns. “This is the first place I’ve actually invested in.
