I thought in one episode it mentioned that Jerry lives on the 10th floor. If this is true, how does everyone get up to his apartment so quickly? I absolutly love this show its just something i've been wondering.

No, i think in one episode Kramer says "I just climbed 10 flights of stairs". But since Jerry's apartment number is 5A, it's safe to assume he lives on the 5th floor. I think Kramer's "10 flights of stairs" statement was supposed to be just a figure of speech, like if you ran down the street and then said "I just ran 2 miles to catch up to you..."
Besides all that,I think a simpler answer would have been:" It's a f@#^cking sitcom, don't over analize...did you expect them to wait 10 minutes for everyone to get to his apartment??? Jeez....

i also think it's safe to assume that jerry lives on the fifth floor, though steve is right; jerry does mention to kramer in 'the stock tip' that they're ten floors up from the street.

Steve, have you ever lived ten floor up? Nobody outside on the ground would be able to hear you yelling out the window at them the way everyone does on that show... especially with New York traffic. Ten floors up? No way!

Hmm...but doesn't 5A refer to the floor?

You mean to tell Jimmy that they never actually hauled two-hundred-thousand dollars worth of production sound and lighting equipment up and down that stairway to and from his apartment each week? We've been GYPED!!!

just in case there's still any controversy surrounding this topic (and, since i had to go through four pages of posts to find it again, i'm assuming there isn't Smile ).....

in 'the sponge,' the elevator in jerry and kramer's building is on the blink, and kramer exhausts himself by climbing "five flights of stairs."

happy, pappy?

In the stock tip episode Jerry sarcastically tells Kramer that the woman Kramer is looking at through binoculars out Jerry's window really wants some guy staring at her through binoculars from ten floors up. So jerry loves on the tenth floor. Not the fifth.
