The iconic show Seinfeld wrapped up in 1998 with a historic finale watched by – get this- 76 million viewers. That tells you a lot about the impact and reach of the show. Furthermore, even 20 years after the end of Seinfeld, it is still a beloved feel-good sitcom for many.
This is why streaming mogul Netflix has acquired the rights of the American Show from Hulu. Starting 2021, prepare to binge watch Seinfeld all 180 episodes of Seinfeld. But now returning to Elaine Bene’s townhouse.
The present owners Harry Azorin and Lori Monson bought the house back in 1995 for $950,000. Even though the house needed some renovation, they were drawn to the “soul” of the place. It has character and not to mention, beauty.
But for most, the townhouse is a historic landmark from their favorite show. And even the owners know that. Approximately twice a month, one passerby will ask them if it really is the house on Seinfeld.
Fun fact: The show’s finale was shot in the home with Azorin and Monson present.
In regards to its floor plan, the Chelsea building has 6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, and 2 half bathrooms. All of this is scattered across its 5 floors. Built-in 1839, you get a front and back, large windows to let in light and big walking space. With high ceilings and expansive fireplaces, the townhouse is a luxurious dream.
Its location is also very notable. The townhouse is near the famous Chelsea Market and is a stone’s throw away from the Whitney Museum of American Art.
