I assume they are close to Central Park (since they hung out at Central Perk coffee shop).Monica and Rachel lived in the apartment that Monica's grandmother lived in. Monica was subletting illegally basically and it was rent controlled.
Chandler actually had a real job so could probably afford where he and Joey lived all by himself which he in a sense was as Joey never seemed to have a dime..
Ross would have been making decent money.
Phoebe is the strange one as her major source of income seemed to be singing " smelly cat".
What's most interesting to me is how competent different  Joey and Chandler's place was from Monica and Rachel despite being across the hall from each other.


Didn't I just post this? I thought it was Monica's aunt, but you might be right about it being her grandmother. As I already said, we found out in one episode that Joey had never paid Chandler any rent. Phoebe was a masseuse.

You weren’t getting any pussy until after Friends was over so, you might as well watch it.

I can't believe no one mentioned this but the Cosby show.

There was nothing wrong with that show. It was fairly well acted and very well-written compared to almost anything else in the ‘80s.

It was boring and never had a funny moment.  And worse they gave him another go at it with another sitcom that lasted 4 seasons.

I liked the Cosby Show, but IMO it started going downhill as the kids grew up and they started adding more characters to the household. Funniest moment to me in its more latter stages was the Thanksgiving episode where Cliff kept having to go out in a rainstorm to get various items from the store. Thought the way he played that was great. Never watched the CBS show. Saw him perform live a few years back and it was a huge disappointment. He just sat in a chair the whole time and talked about one thing before moving on to some of his classic material for about 5 minutes and calling it a day.

I thought the Evans family on Good Times was pretty run down.

With a three camera shoot, you need room to move the cameras around and room for the characters to move around too. Plus you can have two characters in the kitchen and another as close as the couch with some separation. It requires willful suspension of disbelief.

With "Rosanne", you'd be surprised how much house you can get in some of these Midwestern industrial towns and small cities, not just now but in more prosperous times as well. I've never thought that house was unfeasibly big or nice.
Just like Married with Children. A shoe salesman that rarely made a sale could afford a pretty good house in Chicago of all places and still manage to support a wife 2 kids and a dog and have 2 bankers as neighbors.

Actually never watched Good Times so you may be right.

The CBS Cosby Show was the only sitcom taping I ever watched in person, filmed at Kaufman Astoria Studios within walking distance of where I lived.  I thought that show was  fine for what it was, but it was also one of the first times that TV just took an existing show and made another one exactly like it to try to recapture the magic.  I think it did OK, but obviously nothing like the NBC show.

Oh boy was that show a disaster. The only good thing that came out of that show was Howard Stern relentlessly goofing on Magic and the show. Great radio.

I can’t speak to the quality of the writing for the Cosby show but during my preteen days I was all about Denise Huxtable.

Yet both Heathcliff and Claire were very black as were the other three kids. Then again Ray Romano was an olive skinned Italian and his red head wife had three blond blue eyed children.

There was a Canadians show called the Beachcombers that ran forever.. A character on that show named Relic lived in a dump for the whole 27 seasons.
I recall that Johnny Fever's apt in WKRP was also a shithole.
