You may have never stepped foot in New York City in your life, but if you've seen Mariah Carey's 2002 episode of "Cribs," then you'll feel like you've been a guest at Mimi's 11,000 square foot Tribeca penthouse. Not only have you visited Carey's "first apartment ever," but you've also toured a specialized shoe room and even taken a bath alongside a betoweled Mariah.
Yes, it's safe to say that her episode of "Cribs" was perhaps the peak of Mariah Carey's storied and ongoing career.
Here are eight of our favorite things about Carey's classic episode.
