Here's how much each 'Mad Men' character's dwelling cost then and now

Realtor.com has done the world a public service by figuring out how much each apartment or house that appears in the television show “Mad Men” might have cost at the time — and how much each would cost today.

What that post doesn’t do is adjust the 1960s numbers for inflation, thereby allowing us to see just which character might have gotten the richest if they held onto that property into old age.

The answer, unsurprisingly, is Peggy.

(Numbers are rounded a bit from the official CPI calculations.)
