  • Ted Mosby on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#9) Ted Mosby

    • How I Met Your Mother

    The Apartment:

    This New York City, NY, apartment is far beyond Ted's means. His unit is a two-bedroom with generous windows and a fireplace. Located on the Upper West Side, the flat also has exposed brick walls, a piano, and a separate workspace area.

    The Income:

    Ted is an architect, so it stands to reason he isn't bringing home chump change. Still, an apartment that size might be a financial burden. A similarly-sized Upper West Side apartment may cost about $3,500. With Ted's paycheck, which is probably around $4,900 a month, he would have to scrimp and save to afford the bare necessities.

  • Hannah Horvath on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#6) Hannah Horvath

    • Girls

    The Apartment:

    Hannah lives in a two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn's trendy Greenpoint neighborhood. While the place isn't incredibly lavish, it's a palace by New York City standards. The living room is generous enough to fit sofas, chairs, and a television. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the bedrooms are of moderate size.

    The Income:

    A roommate (first Marnie, then Elijah) usually occupies the other bedroom in Hannah's apartment, but even with someone sharing the rent, the monthly expenses should put Hannah in the poorhouse – especially considering her erratic work history and the low-paying nature of many of her jobs. Seriously, she's a barista, public school teacher, and freelance writer. An average price for a similar apartment would be about $3,000 a month, meaning Hannah would have to make $60,000 a year to afford her half.

  • Danny Tanner on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#7) Danny Tanner

    • Full House

    The House:

    Danny Tanner houses his entire immediate family, some of his extended family, and a friend in an enormous home in San Francisco, CA. The space has three bedrooms upstairs, a huge finished basement and attic, and a small living room alcove that also serves as Joey's bedroom. Oh, and the kitchen is massive, and there is a yard big enough for Comet, the Tanners' pooch, to run and play.

    The Income:

    Even with all the adults living in the house and, presumably, contributing to the mortgage, it would still be expensive. A similar home in the same Western Addition neighborhood sold a few years ago for nearly $2.9 million, creating a $14,000 mortgage. Danny hosts a morning talk show, Jesse is a musician, and Joey is a stand-up comic. Plus, they're raising three kids who come with expenses of their own.

  • Josh Baskin on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#4) Josh Baskin

    • Big, Big: the musical

    The Apartment:

    The young character in Big really lucks up and lands a fantastic apartment. A huge Soho corner unit, the place comes with hardwood floors, high ceilings, and wall-to-wall windows.

    The Income:

    Josh lands a job as a toy-tester for a major toy store in New York City, NY. It's the perfect gig for a kid trapped in a grown man's body. Yet even in the '80s, a fun job like that wouldn't cover the rent and the cost of living in the metropolitan area. By today's yardstick, that apartment would cost about $9,000 a month to rent. Even if a present-day Josh made $100,000 a year, he still wouldn't have enough money.

  • Kimmy Schmidt on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#10) Kimmy Schmidt

    • Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

    The Apartment:

    Kimmy and Titus share a one-bedroom basement apartment in Brooklyn, NY. Titus has the bedroom, and the title character sleeps in a closet. In the unit, there's a small kitchen, living area, and bathroom. Landlady Lillian calls the unit a "garden-level maisonette."

    The Income:

    The space is small and a bit dank, but still, it would demand a small fortune in New York City. A one-bedroom in that neighborhood usually calls for around $3,200 a month. Neither of those characters are consistently employed, and when they are, they don't rake in the dough. At one point, Kimmy works as an Uber driver; a median salary for a NYC Uber driver is around $3,700 a month. Assuming she's covering the rent (because Titus's full-time job is being Titus), that doesn't leave much left over.

  • Dana Barrett on Random TV And Movie Characters Who Can't Afford Their Homes

    (#8) Dana Barrett

    • Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II, Ghostbusters III

    The Apartment:

    A penthouse unit on Central Park West, Dana's apartment is colossal, especially because she doesn't have roommates. There's a living room with views of the city, a large bedroom, and an absolutely massive kitchen.

    The Income:

    Dana is a symphony musician, so it's hard to imagine how she affords her spot, even in the 1980s. A one-bedroom in the same building sold for nearly $1.3 million in 2014. Symphony musician salaries can vary, ranging from a few thousand dollars a year to upwards of $150K. Still, though, if Dana wanted that apartment today, she'd have to be incredibly creative to make rent.
