Monica's apartment on "Friends" was as much a member of the cast as the core six characters. The iconic purple walls, gold frame surrounding the front door's peephole -- and that balcony! Ah, the Ugly Naked Guy memories that balcony holds.
The apartment was so central to the story that every single character lived there at some point: Ross had stayed there when he and Monica's grandmother was still alive; Phoebe lived there with Monica before the start of the series and again after an unfortunate fire at her own place; Chandler and Joey famously won the apartment as their own after a bet; and Rachel was there up until Monica and Chandler moved in together.
