On viewing the property, Meg Altman was told that the previous owner, a reclusive millionaire, had installed an isolated room used to protect the house's occupants from intruders. The "Panic Room" was protected by concrete and steel on all sides, a thick steel door and an extensive security system with multiple surveillance cameras and a separate phone line. Shortly after she moved into the brownstone an incident occurred which caused her to put the house back on the market.

otsoNY Comments: The property on West 94th Street was only used for exterior shots. All interior shots were done in a Hollywood studio. Today, the private home is still there for fans to see minus the actual panic room.

Meg Altman's a home located at 38 West 94th Street had approximately 5,411 square feet and was built in 1910.
