I was wondering how Beckett has such a nice NY loft on a detective's salary. It's not like she's a rich reporter like Lois Lane!
Maybe she had an extremely good insurance policy on her old place before it got firebombed.
This is a completely new apartment, right? It's not on a spaceship, so I'm not as obsessive as I could be about production design, so it's possible that I missed it if it was the same one, rebuilt.
