So, you may have heard at this point: Hamilton tickets are a little expensive these days. As in, so expensive that someone's selling tickets to Lin-Manuel Miranda's final performances to the tune of $10,000. And if you were hoping for last-minute tickets to tonight's performance, here's a snapshot of the options available on Ticketmaster, ranging from around $1,200 to $3,500 (apiece!):
For a certain type of New Yorker—Broadway-obsessed or money-is-no-object types—these numbers aren't shocking enough to derail a starry-eyed trip to the Richard Rodgers Theatre tonight. (For the rest of us, how does "a bastard, orphan, son of a whore" afford those ticket prices?) Still, there are probably more productive ways to spend one's money than on a single ticket to the hottest show in town, even if it is expected to sweep this weekend's Tony Awards. Say, pay for a month's rent.
We've rounded up rentals currently on the market at $10,000, $3,500, and $1,200/month. After all, as the founder of our nation's entire financial system, wouldn't Hamilton more likely endorse this as a smarter way to spend one's hard-earned cash?
For $9,500/month, you could also rent an entire four-bedroom townhouse in Carroll Gardens, complete with a stone patio and landscaped yard in the back.
In lieu of an orchestra seat to tonight's performance, you could also rent out this duplex two-bedroom on the Upper West Side (as Hamilton sings in the show, "it's quiet uptown"); it's asking $3,450/month, and includes a fireplace, exposed brick, and a private rooftop terrace.$3,230/month two-bedroom a One Duffield Street, a brand-new building in downtown Brooklyn that has extras like parking, bike storage, a gym, a furnished roof deck, and common spaces including a courtyard, lounge, and game room (where, we presume, duels are strictly frowned-upon).there's this studio at Beach 119th Street in the Rockaways, located right on the beach and asking $1,150/month.
One more option in the lower price range: this studio in Flatbush Gardens, an apartment complex that includes a shared outdoor garden. The asking rent is $1,195/month.
