All over the world, viewers have been charmed by the humor, empowering message, and rich aesthetics of award-winning series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. But history buffs and New Yorkers get a bonus treat out of it: a trip back in time to 1950's New York that shows the nightclubs, department stores, and other locations lost to the ages.

What hasn't been banished to the past are the jaw-droppingly large and gorgeous prewar apartments Miriam "Midge" Maisel and her family inhabit. These homes would appear fabulously and unrealistically extravagant, and the S&P Case Schiller Home Price Index would back up that claim: An apartment the size of the Maisels' would cost $462K in 1959...or around $8 million today.

However, a Refinery29 article revealed that the show's apartments have a basis in history, having been inspired by The Strathmore, a prewar cooperative on the Upper West Side. This building does not currently have any openings, but there are still classic co-ops to be found that would fit right into Mrs. Maisel's world. Bear in mind that while the apartments may be beautifully preserved, the prices have not been frozen in time: A four-bedroom home in The Astor would have been worth around $631K in 1959, but is now listed for $5.45 million.
