Ugly Betty might be moving to the Big Apple come summer, and Michael Urie, who plays fabulously scheming assistant Marc St. James to Vanessa Williams‘s villainous Wilhelmina Slater, is ready to pack up and go on one condition: as long as he and costar Becky Newton can find apartments in the same building. (The two currently live in the same Los Angeles apartment complex.)

“We’re going to have to be neighbors there too, that’s all there is to it,” Urie told PEOPLE at Wednesday’s Hot in Hollywood Legendary Bingo’s 10th anniversary at West Hollywood’s Hamburger Mary’s. “I’m going to do all I can to make that happen.”

As for what nighborhood the castmates are looking into, Urie says, “I’ll probably stay in Manhattan. I did Brooklyn and Queens for eight years so I think it’s time… I’m an adult!” Another upside of relocating to New York that Urie is looking forward to: the food. “Pizza and deli sandwiches,” he says. “It is impossible to find food in L.A. quickly without it being crap. But in N.Y.C. it’s everywhere.”

As for next week’s Ugly Betty finale, in which Lindsay Lohan makes her much-anticipated appearance, Urie told PEOPLE that while he wasn’t on set when Lohan filmed, the buzz among cast and crew is that the actress “was really funny.” –Natasha BurtonMichael Caulfield/WireImage
