Judy Judge is selling for $9 million.

They just call it a pied a terre because the kitchen sucks.

It's a term referring to a small apartment in the city, typically owned by someone who has a larger house somewhere else, r2. The little apartment is their "foot on the ground," their little acre of earth in the city.

It's an idiom so the origin may be obscure--possibly something like having one foot on the ground

Not sure this is what you are asking R2, but it's a fairly commonplace term for a small living space that is not one's primary residence, usually secured for business purposes. If it waws a vacation residence, you'd call it that.

When we lived way out in the boonies my father kept a small studio apartment downtown, where he worked. He'd use it if he had to work late or if there was a snow storm. Later we found out he used it for several trysts.

Somebody sure likes beige!

That's not that big. The kitchen is tiny. $9 million? Really?

Since when is 3,000 sq/feet small?

When you're asking $9MIL for it, R9.

R8, when you live in the Sherry-Netherland, and pay $17,000/month in maintenance, you don't need a large kitchen. They have a huge mansion in Connecticut and don't stay in the apartment for long stretches.

[quote]but the maintenance at Judge J's is still, brace, a whopping $17,411/month.

Holy shit.

Why do people want to live in a place that feels like a 2 star hotel? Horrid furnishings. And $17,000 a month in maintenance? More money than sense.

Don't assume this is Judge Judy's furnishings. Most likely her stuff is out and the place has been staged.

What does that $17,000 a month cover??

by Anonymousreply 1501/17/2013

For $17,000 a month, I'd expect repairs, cleaning, all meals cooked, a car services, and a high-end escort agency on call.

I love the Sherry-Netherland.

It does include daily maid service.
