The Real World: Back to New York is the 10th season of "The Real World." It aired from July 3, 2001 to December 4, 2001.

It is the second season of The Real World to be filmed in the Mid-Atlantic States region of the United States, specifically in New York after "The Real World: New York."

The season featured seven people who lived in a four-floor loft at 632 Hudson Street in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City.

As its title indicates "Back to New York" is the first season to take place in a city that had hosted a previous season, as the show's first season was set in New York in 1992.

The season was filmed January 9, 2001 to June 2, 2001.

The cast appeared in a cover feature in the Fall 2001 issue of "Time Out New York."


The loft at 632 Hudson Street in Manhattan's West Village where the cast lived. The cast lived in an 8,000-square-foot (740 m2), four story loft at 632 Hudson Street in Manhattan's West Village, just over a mile from the SoHo loft used in the filming of the first season.

The building was built in 1847 and for 40 years following World War II, housed a Spanish-style sausage factory called the Esteve Packing Corporation.

The building was purchased in the early 1990s for $450,000. The 5,000-square-foot (460 m2) third and fourth floors, which included the penthouse level and roof deck, were renovated for the series.

The production equipment included 15 video cameras, 29 monitors, 142 studio lights, dozens of microphones and a mile of cable.

After completion of the season, the building was placed on the rental market for special events and short-term stays.


Beginning with this season, the producers instituted the new rule that participation in the assignment is mandatory for the cast, and that a roommate who was terminated from the assignment would be evicted from the residence and from the cast.

The housemates were assigned jobs as receptionists for Arista Records during the day and helped gain publicity for their up-and-coming bands at night.
