What do Eloise, Harriet the Spy, Stuart Little and Lyle the Crocodile have in common? They’re all characters from beloved children’s books, they’re all New Yorkers and they all live in homes worth millions of millions of dollars. A talking mouse I can believe, but affording a $35 million townhouse on Gramercy Park? Now that’s unrealistic.
That’s all according to a new study from CityRealty which used some pretty impressive detective work (Harriet would be proud) to figure out the current valuation of the fictional homes of six well-known characters.
There’s nothing little about the market value of Stuart Little’s home. He’s the fictional character that calls the most expensive digs home at $35 million. Perpetual Plaza troublemaker Eloise comes in a close second with a theoretical $20 million apartment, and Harriet the Spy follows with a $6 million Yorkville home base.
