When you're in New York for the first time, you feel like you've been there before. One of the reasons why this is the case is certainly the many films and TV shows that were filmed there.
Many of the interior scenes were filmed at Silver Cup Studios in Long Island City, a large portion of the series was shot on the streets, bars, restaurants, stores, clubs, etc. The real star of the HBO series was New York City. It's been more than ten years since Sex and the City aired, and we watch, quote, relive, recall the anecdotes and continue the debate about eternal love in the big city.
Some addresses where Sex and the City was filmed :
- Staten Island Ferry , where Charlotte announces she is getting married with a great view of the city.
- Onieal's. Scenes at Steve Pub, Scout, were filmed at this Little Italy bar-restaurant. Once a secret bar during the alcohol era, Prohibition , the building had a tunnel to police headquarters across the street. 174 Grand Street
- Magnolia Bakery , Carrie tells Miranda about one of her crushes while enjoying a cupcake from the famous bakery, 401 Bleecker Street.
2. Gossip Girl
America's favorite TV drama, Gossip Girl, based on the books by Cecily von Ziegesar. This show is fun because it's about "Manhattan's Elite" and "Gossip Girl." Cleverly shows how today anyone who has insider information through their job or connections can become an author.
Couple of the most famous spots:

The first sitcom in television history that had no plot and boasted that it was "a show about nothing." But of course that description was wrong. It was never a farce. It was social satire. Seinfeld simply argues that nothing is everything any reasonable person could expect from life. Most episodes of Seinfeld lead in a long, indirect way to two worldviews: Number one is that most people are bad and not very smart. Number two is that it is absurd Taking care of other people is also very inconvenient. All of this presented in a very funny way. Were you right?
- The famous dinner where many of the funny dialogues took place can be found at 2880 Broadway.
- Kramer once stands lost in the phone booth on the corner of 1st Ave. and 1st St. He says to Jerry who is on the other side of the receiver: “I'm at the corner of first, and first. Wait a minute. How can the same street intersect with itself? I must be at the nexus of the universe!”
I'm on the corner first and first, wait a minute, how can the same street be with you cross yourself. I must be at the nexus of the universe.
