About the NYC TV & Movie Tour - On Location Tours
Have you got Serena van der Woodsen style as well as Spidey senses? Do 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’ NYC TV & Movie 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, glimpse the Daily Bugle offices from Spider-Man, and see the hotel from American Hustle. Other stops include the bar that inspired the main hangout on How I Met Your Mother and locations from Girls and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. 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 NYC TV & Movie 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 two hours and 30 minutes. Tours depart at 10am.
The NYC TV & Movie Tour is conducted in French on Fridays at 11am in April and May and 10am from June to December.
