The Wake Residence is the apartment of Alan and Alice Wake in New York City.


This is one of the home's of Alan Wake in New York City before he and his wife Alice Wake head to Bright Falls. The apartment has a kitchen that connects to a living room. Alice and Alan both have their own offices; Alice's office contains the tools required for her photography job whilst Alan has a typewriter for his writing. Finally they have a bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

Events of Alan Wake[]

The apartment makes two appearances from flashbacks: The first time is three years prior to the incident in Bright Falls, where Alan has returned home and Alice is working on the covers for his latest (and currently last) Alex Casey book, The Sudden Stop. Alan also introduces the clicker to Alice after the power had cut out. In the second flashback, which was two years prior, Alan had woken up from a hangover, as he partied the night before, arrived home at seven in the morning and "passed out mid-sentence", according to Alice. He received a voicemail from Barry to check the television, where Alan watches The Harry Garrett Show in which he was being interviewed. Alice later walks in and the two make up after his previous behaviour.

The apartment makes one final appearance when Alan jumps into Cauldron Lake at the end of Departure. He suddenly wakes up in bed with Alice, but the lights are off and the Dark Presence is everywhere, and his wife, Alice, is not afraid of the dark anymore. Alan suggests that what he saw was not his wife anymore.

The Signal (DLC)[]

The apartment appears in the Dark Place again as Alan appears through the closet and finds himself in his bedroom. Here he meets with Thomas Zane in his living room, before the Dark Place shifts and suddenly outside his apartment window is a warehouse that appears, where he has to fight television of himself.


  • The address for this apartment is 1512 Dunwich #23, Upper East Side, Manhattan NY 10075 (per Alice's driver's license[1]).
  • The photographs decorating the apartment are real images, taken by Remedy staff while shooting reference material for the Max Payne series[2].
  • When going through the apartment again, Barry Wheeler calls Alan to watch a show on TV, at the end of it, the second guest after Alan Wake is Sam Lake, who is the story writer and concept designer of Remedy Entertainment, making a cameo appearance.
  • In the PC version of Alan Wake, there is a QR code in Alan's office. When scanned, it reads: "Huh. Turns out this isn't too bad even if you're not sitting on a couch when you play it. Who knew!" An explanation of the meaning behind this quote can be found on the QR Codes page.
    • In the Remastered version, this QR code has been changed and now links to YouTube video: Vision 02.
