A fan of the pop-in? Now you can stop by Jerry’s apartment from Seinfeld

hulu is recreating jerrys apartment from seinfeld dvd box cover
Break out your cereal bowls, because you can now visit Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment. (“My home, Elaine! Where I sleep, where I come to play with my toys!”) Well, the fictional Jerry’s place, anyway. Hulu is creating a version of the Upper West Side apartment to promote all nine seasons of Seinfeld becoming available on the streaming service starting June 24, thanks to its $180-million deal.

Amongst the “interactive elements” in “Seinfeld: The Apartment” are the chance to recreate George Costanza’s sassy, shirtless photo shoot (“You are a lover boy!”), which actually took place in Cosmo Kramer’s apartment, but okay. Speaking of Jerry’s neighbor, fans can also reenact his famous slide-in entrance.

If you want to see the outside of 129 West 81st Street, however, you’ll have to go to Los Angeles, where the show was filmed. So how much would it have cost in the ‘90s to rent the place? About $2,500 a month, according to real estate site Movoto. You gotta wonder how Kramer afforded the place across the hall. (What we wouldn’t give to get a look inside that place, what with the chicken wire and Mr. Marbles).

The installation will be open at 451 West 14th Street from June 24 to 28 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., so be sure to pop in during those hours. Can’t make it in person? Check out Jerry’s apartment in virtual reality.

Here’s a list of things we’d like to see at the installation:

A take-out menu from the coffee shop

A J. Peterman catalogue

A puffy shirt hanging in the closet (perhaps next to a coat made from Gore-Tex)

A bottle of Hennigan’s scotch (“Boy, that Hennigan goes down smooth, and afterwards, you don’t even smell.”), and a bottle of Schnapps (for Elaine)

A Superman magnet on the fridge and statue on the bookshelf (there’s much debate about whether every single episode actually features some reference, however obscure, to the comic-book character)

Lady Gillette razors for chest shaving

A European carry-all

Chunky wrappers

A Magic-Eye poster

A box of Junior Mints
