The chic apartments in ‘Uncoupled’ and where to find them in real life

Much like Darren Star’s past hits — Sex And The City, Emily in Paris — the Netflix rom-com series Uncoupled is as much focused on the bustling city as it is on the love life and misadventures of its characters.

Though this time around, Star took things one step further, incorporating the city’s iconic buildings in the storyline.

The protagonist, Michael Lawson (Neil Patrick Harris), is a real estate broker in the city — giving extra weight to the role the Big Apple plays in the new Netflix series.

That’s why we did some digging to find the apartment buildings featured on the show — and give you a better idea of how much they cost and what makes them stand out.

Michael’s apartment


If you’ve fallen for the apartment Michael and Colin share on Uncoupled, you’re not alone.

Michael’s apartment is set at 44 Gramercy Park North, one of the landmark buildings on Gramercy Park. Dating back to 1929, the prewar building consists of 75 upscale apartments spread across 15 floors.

Designed by Schwartz and Gross, the Gramercy Park landmark features Neo-Gothic details that include a limestone arch and casement windows.

The average price in the building is $1,327/square foot, according to CityRealty. There are currently 2 active listings in the building — each of them one-bedroom apartments priced at $1,295,000 and $1,350,000 respectively.

Claire’s apartment


Throughout the first season of the series, Claire’s apartment — on the market following her divorce — is Michael’s most coveted listing.

Claire’s apartment is set in the The Aurora/Oakwood Residence at 556 Third Ave, centrally located between 36th and 37th on Third avenue in Murray Hill, Midtown East, NY.

The Aurora is a luxury full service condominium with 24/7 doorman, a gym, business center, and an expansive rooftop with 360 views of the city.

We found two penthouses currently for sale in the building: one a 3-bedroom showstopper — on the market for $3,995,000 — and the other a sprawling 4-bed penthouse priced at $7,000,000.

Michael’s parents’ apartment


Rumor has it that Michael’s parents live in another Schwartz and Gross building — and one that’s no stranger to TV fans.

The eagle-eyed team at Decider spotted some uncanny resemblances between the Uncoupled apartment and the one Midge Maisel’s parents live in on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.

So they reached out to a Netflix publicity rep, who confirmed that an owner whose apartment was used in Uncoupled said their space was also used in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Jackpot!

The reveal confirms that the scenes were filmed at The Strathmore, an upscale 12-story building set at 404 Riverside Drive in Morningside Heights.

The prewar co-op was built in 1909 by the design team of Schwartz and Gross — the same architects that designed the building Michael supposedly lives in.

It has 48 apartments across its 12 floors. The most recent sale recorded in the building (for a 2-bed, 2-bath unit set on the 11th floor) closed for $2,495,000.
