See Where Big Fat Goalie and Chanandler Bong Laid Their Heads

Only on television could a waitress, a chef, a mostly out of work actor, and a — whatever it was Chandler did — could afford large, beautiful apartments in the heart of one of the world’s most expensive cities The Big Apple. For most of the series, Chandler and Joey lived in apartment 19 across from their pals Rachel and Monica, where they regularly met along with Phoebe and Ross.

The gang’s apartments (the girls were in number 20) were site of many of the show’s fans favorite moments. Who can forget the chick and the duck, the epic foosball matches, or the game taking the world by storm Fireball? But the boys’ apartment has its drawbacks. There was the singing neighbor (though Joey loved him, at least), the much too thin walls which left little to the imagination, Ross overstaying his welcome, and let us not forget Joey managing to lose all their things because he had to prove to a total stranger that their entertainment center was large enough to fit a person.

The main meeting area for the group outside of the coffee shop saw plenty of memorable moments as well of course. There was the closet of mystery, the downstairs cranky neighbor that the gang came to learn wasn’t quite so different, a seeming eternity spent hiding while Ross and Rachel had yet another fight, or last but not least the famed apartment switch contest. In case you’ve forgotten, Monica’s nickname when she was a field hockey goalie was none other than the ever so clever “Big Fat Goalie.” Oh, and ‘could I be wearing any more clothes?’

Others in the group, and occasionally outsiders, would fine themselves as residents from time to time in apartments 19 and 20, but to Friends fans everywhere they’ll always belong to Chandler and Joey, Monica and Rachel.

40 Amazing Pictures of Incredible Home Secret Passages

Creative Home Engineering is the company we all wanted to run when we were six years old. Oh, who am I kidding, it’s the company we all want to run now. The company is the leading manufacturer in the hidden passage industry (I didn’t know this was an industry, but I like it) for home owners looking for a secret room for valuables, to serve as a panic room or just simply a really cool conversion piece at a party.

Their vault doors are made of stainless steel and are secured with 10 one inch diameter pins. They can be setup to interface with a homeowner’s existing security system and can be equipped with surveillance monitors so those who are forced to retreat within will know when they can safely exit. And if that’s not security enough, CHE can use biometric scan technology so only select people are able to open the door.
