The Original 'Real World' Loft in New York City Is on the Market for $7.5 Million

May 31, 2019

Good news for anyone with an extra $7.5 million to spare – the original home from MTV’s “The Real World” is up for sale in New York City. 

“The Real World” made its mark in the reality television world almost instantaneously when it first aired in May of 1992 and lasted for 32 seasons total. The premise was to throw seven strangers into a New York City loft and let the drama unfold on its own. 

When the show first began, strangers Becky Blasband, Andre Corneau, Heather B. Gardner, Julie Gentry, Norman Korpi, Eric Nies, and Kevin Powell were sent to live in a 4,000 square foot duplex in SoHo for three months. 

Contestants on the show even revealed that they assumed they were being sent to some sort of tight-spaced closet of sorts. They were shocked to learn their actual living fate – a much nicer setup than many of them were used to. 

The show may have been a joke to some fans, but the living arrangements certainly were not. The listing for the property describes the five-bedroom, five-bathroom loft as an “exceptionally gracious sprawling full floor home located in Prince Tower.” 

Other amenities of the space include two living spaces, a master suite with two full bathrooms, and a library.
