You, too, can be a Real Housewife of New Jersey! (Or the husband of one.) Three of Bravo’s five princesses of tacky suburban living reside in Franklin Lakes, where this house is located. The Bergen County town is a well-off enclave—as of the last U.S. census, its median household income was $132,373. Local broker Tammy King, who’s handling the sale of this mansion, says she’s been getting “lots of calls” lately because of the show. That said, Franklin Lakes does have its charms: the pristine namesake lake, well-regarded schools, and the commute-friendly location 25 minutes from the George Washington Bridge—or 40 minutes from the meatpacking district, where Jersey girls roam free.
