"Mad Men" may be over, but Joan would never leave New York

WHO: Actress Christina Hendricks recently did a turn on Sesame Street explaining to kids what technology is. She pointed to a laptop, a cell phone, and a tablet, but didn’t mention the device that allows you to summon any train in the NYC subway system  to arrive the minute  you hit the platform. They have invented that right?

WHERE: Hendricks, who  played the ad agency secretary turned  partner Joan Harris in Mad Men, bought a $1.16 million one-bedroom condo in the Parc Vendome in Midtown, where the median sales price is $1.5 million and the median rental price is $3,750.

WHAT'S AVAILABLE: Want to live near the bombshell? There's a studio for sale for $700,000 in the same building, but most of the available apartments are actually rentals.  Rentals range from a $2,900 studio to a $5,500 one-bedroom.  The four-building complex has two roof decks, so maybe you'll actually run into Hendricks while you sunbathe.


To live like Paul McCartney, all you need is love — and a Fifth Avenue penthouse

Is this downtown neighborhood fit for a Dame?

Suffice it to say, we'd all like to live in Kelly Ripa's  NYC

Christina Ricci may play some creepy characters, but her Brooklyn townhouse is pretty charming
