Friends - Different Apartment Numbers
In almost all the episodes of Friends, the girls apartment number is 20, and the guys apartment number is 19. Well, in the first few (and I mean the first few) episodes the girls apartment number is 5, and the guys have apartment no.4. I wonder if all 4 of them moved and they got the same design of their old apartments.

i noticed that too. and apparently so have the producers cuz they gave out an explanation "Initially, Chandler and Joey's apartment number was 4, and Monica and Rachel's was 5. Shortly after production began, it was decided that the apartment building where much of the show takes place was too big to have upper apartments with numbers as low as 4 & 5. The last episode where you can actually see those numbers in use was the sixth episode, "TOW the Butt." Then in the next episode, "TOW the Blackout," we don't get a good look at their doors, but we see that Mr. Heckles (downstairs) has apartment number 8. Immediately following this, in "TOW Nana Dies Twice," the numbers have changed to 19 (C&J) & 20 (M&R)."

You're kind of right, however the producers say that it is still the same building, it's just they decided it was better for the friends to be higher up in the building, not only because of central perk, but both the Mr heckles underneath them and when joey was counting how many steps it takes from their apartment to central perk...

The producers PURPOSELY changed the apartment numbers. They did it hoping nobody would notice, it wasn't a mistake. They did it to make the apartment complex seem larger and the apartment seem higher up.

This was explained by the producers. Every time you see a shot from the outside of the building they live in you always see the camera head up to their 'apartments'. If they live in 4 and 5 then why are their apartments so high up? They decided to change the numbers so it wouldn't conflict with the screen shots from outside the building.

this wasn't really a slip-up at all, unless you count having numbers as low as 4 and 5 being at the top of that building. the actual change was intentional.

They couldn't have all moved, because isn't Monica still renting her apartment under her grandmother's name (to get the lower rate)? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Hello Genghis!! Robby was being sarcastic, he didn't actually think that they all moved to different apartments that look exactly the same!

the reason that the apartment numbers were changed was because the writers thought that the numbers were too small. the reason being that at the beginning of every show they zoomed in on the upper floors from outside the building and the apartments could not be 4 & 5 but something more like 19 & 20.

Speaking of Central Perk, was it always downstairs from their apartments? I don't remember them saying that before a couple of seasons ago.

What the heck? I don't understand why we all care so much about the apartment numbers. Don't people usually watch a comedy show for the comedy and not for the particulars in the scenery? Or is it just me....

actually, the numbers were changed because the producers noticed that they showed the exterior of the building and made there apartments much hire than the apartment was so they switched the numbers to 29 and 30. Because 3(?) and 4(?)belong lower in the building.
