The apartment: While 16 Mercer does have floor-through, 3,000+ square foot apartments, they are not the multistory fun house that's portrayed in Sandler’s Razzie-winning film.
I would suggest 74 or 78 Grand Street as more accurate interpretations of reality. Renting slightly over $6,000 per month for 2,000 square feet, or available for purchase at around $2.5 million per floor for raw, Artist-In-Residence zoned space, these buildings retain original charm and deliver size for the best possible price.
Seeing as Sandler works as a toll booth agent, living off $200,000.00 in accident compensation, I doubt he’d be spending that on less than a year’s rent at the real 16 Mercer."
Joe McGauley is a senior editor at Supercompressor and even if he could afford to, would never live in The Dakota. Thanks, Roman Polanski.
