Jerry Seinfeld’s Apartment is everything but an actual cast member in Seinfeld. The apartment has so much charm and so much of the show takes place there, that its layout has become ingrained in the minds of Seinfeld fans everywhere.
In fact, it has taken on so much of the show’s fan consciousness, that official and unofficial recreations of the apartment are popping up everywhere.
Here’s six of the best ones we found…
#1: A Virtual Reality Replica
Jerry’s Place is a virtual reality replica of Jerry’s apartment. Built by Greg Miller, over the course of a month, the experience is relaxing and incredibly detailed. If you have a Oculus Rift CV1/DK2 or the HTC Vive, you can download the experience for free. If you’re not into VR, you can watch this YouTube walkthrough…
…or this video on how it was built.
#2: A Real-world Replica
About 2 years ago, to celebrate Hulu’s $180 million purchase of streaming rights for Seinfeld, the company made an exact replica of Jerry’s apartment in downtown New York. They opened it to the public for about a week in mid 2015. You can view a real 3D walkthrough via the Associated Press.
#3: A Lego Replica
Reddit user max-zilla just built this replica of Seinfeld’s apartment out of Legos and we’re really digging it. The best part is that it sits next to a cool Chinese theater with a bunch of other characters watching.
Here’s the source if you would like to add to the discussion…
#4: A DOOM Replica
This replica of Jerry’s apartment made using the video game DOOM’s graphics and physics is my favorite replica on this list. Not only is the apartment accurate, but it comes complete with all the cast members. Of course, being DOOM, you can shoot the characters.
The best part is Elaine’s wounding sound: “Get Out!”
#5: A Floor-Plan Poster Replica
This floor plan poster is a great way to show your devotion to the show while having a classy wall hanging. Nothing on the poster gives away that it’s Jerry’s apartment other than the layout and the address. Only true fans of the show will recognize it on your wall. It’s a great way to weed out guests that you don’t want long-term relationships with.
#6: A Handmade DIY 3D Model Replica
If you’re more into the DIY scene, you can buy this printable 3D model of Jerry’s apartment. It comes complete with things like:
- The shirt Kramer convinces Jerry to wear in Season 5, Ep 2, “The Puffy Shirt”
- The umbrella from Jerry’s days as an umbrella salesman.
- The toothbrush Jerry’s girlfriend uses after it falls into the toilet
…and more. It’s on Etsy currently for $12.95.
If you’re a Seinfeld fan, these replicas of Jerry’s apartment should bring you back to a simpler time in the 90s when nothing mattered and we all watched shows about nothing.
