They said based on Google Trends Data, HBO Max's Succession is a massive hit in New York and Connecticut. In fact, the Empire and Nutmeg States were ranked in the Top 5 for Succession interest. Here is the rest of that list.

1 - Washington D.C.

2 - New York

3 - Massachusetts

4 - New Jersey

5 - Connecticut

West Virginia was the least interested in the HBO series. This data makes complete sense for obvious reasons. These characters we love to hate, are living around us in New York and CT. These stories are more relatable, genuine and thought provoking for us.

The Succession craze in everywhere now and it's becoming big business for the real estate world. Properties, offices and buildings featured in the show are being viewed with even more prestige, as if they didn't have enough. The NY Post says Kendall's NYC apartment is now on sale for $29 Million.

The report goes on to explain the ritzy address, saying:

The five-bedroom dwelling is at the top of the tallest tower north of 72nd Street on the East Side. At 5,508 square feet — with an additional 3,500 square feet of outdoor space over three levels — the sprawling residence comes with high ceilings, glass window walls, and panoramic views of Central Park and the city skyline. The penthouse’s private 2,100-square-foot rooftop terrace, which is 467 feet above street level, features a gas fireplace and a dining area.

The real life apartment is on the Upper East Side. This kind of place makes me sick, I want it so bad. I can view wealth from afar and not feel real envy until it involves NYC real estate and then I am the green-eyed monster himself.

P.S. I'm taking a lot of risk saying this but I've not seen 1 minute of Season 4. This is not because I don't love the show, I am obsessed with it. My wife Erica and I made a decision to let the episodes build up so we can binge them one after another once they all air. The problem with that is, these episodes are making headline entertainment news every week and it's getting harder and harder to avoid spoilers. I definitely heard about episode 3 even though I tried like hell to avoid it.
