About New York TV and Movie Sites Tour – On Location Tours
Have you got Holly Golightly grace, Serena van der Woodsen style, Spidey senses or a Tony Soprano twinkle in your eye? Do you shoe-shop like Carrie, break into song like the cast of Glee or make an entrance like Kramer? Whether or not you identify with these classic characters from the big screen and small (or just plain get a kick out of them), one thing is certain: you can identify the city stage upon which all of their trials and tribulations unfold…New York, New York.
With On Location Tours’ New York TV and Movie Sites Tour, you can expect to see where the cast of Glee performed "I Love New York", visit the apartment building that housed your favorite Friends, stop at the brownstone filmed for I Am Legend, glimpse the Daily Bugle offices from Spider-Man, and walk through the building where Will & Grace’s fairer half had her design studio. You’ll even get a chance to take a photo outside the Huxtables’s house from The Cosby Show. In total, you’ll see about forty locations, guided by an actress or actor who has movie-set experience and a deep, informative familiarity with all the city’s best sights.
The New York TV and Movie Sites Tour begins near Times Square, where participants board an air conditioned bus that traces a route through the neighborhoods most prominently featured in film and television, including the historic-building-laden Midtown, Flatiron and Chelsea areas, trendy Meatpacking District, picturesque West Village, chic shopping haven SoHo, and real estate heaven TriBeCa.
Throughout the ride, enthusiastic tour guides toss out trivia questions, point out noteworthy New York buildings like The New York Public Library (as well as neighborhoods that are populated by the city’s celebrities) and play favorite scenes from New York-centric movies and TV on screens throughout the bus.
Approximately three hours and 30 minutes
The New York TV & Movie Sites tour is conducted in French on Fridays at 11am from April to December.
Ice Skating Option
In season, there is also the option to add tickets to Wollman Rink, Central Park's classic ice skating rink. Tickets include admission to the rink and skate rental.
Visitors who want to experience the various neighborhoods of Manhattan, but do so with a fun TV-and-movie focus. Guides make a point to highlight important sites like the Empire State Building and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, even if they don't have any movie ties. For those who are used to seeing Manhattan on a screen, this tour is the ultimate way to connect to the city by walking in the shoes of your favorite movie or TV character.
