The King of Queens House

Oct 30th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

As mentioned in Wednesday’s post, I have many stalking adventures to share from the day my fiancé and I spent with fellow stalker Owen in New York City, including one that actually led us off the island of Manhattan and into the Garden State, aka New Jersey.  In all of my many trips to the Big Apple, I have only actually been off the island once and even then I only ventured as far as Brooklyn.  So, leaving Manhattan to head to an entirely different […]



John Barrymore’s Apartment Building

Oct 29th, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

Another Greenwich Village location that Owen, my fiancé, and I stalked during our recent whirlwind day in New York City was the Greek Revival townhouse where beleaguered actor John Barrymore – Drew’s grandfather – once lived.  For three years, from 1917 to 1920, John rented the top floor penthouse of the building pictured above, which was originally constructed in 1839.  Barrymore decorated his apartment, which he nicknamed the “Alchemist’s Corner”, with Gothic elements including gold wallpaper, fake wooden beams, ironwork accoutrements, and stained glass windows.  […]



Julianne Moore’s House

Oct 28th, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Homes

While in New York a couple of weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of finally meeting fellow stalker Owen in person.    Because Owen lives in nearby Connecticut, the two of us made plans to get together for one stalking-filled day during my Big Apple vacation.  So, early on the morning of October 2nd, my fiancé and I ventured out to Grand Central Station to finally meet up with Owen.  And, let me tell you, the three of us had an absolute blast together.  […]



Grand Central Station

Oct 27th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

 
Yet another Gossip Girl  filming location that I stalked a few weeks back while vacationing in Manhattan is the train station known as Grand Central Terminal.  But being that Grand Central has actually been featured in more than a few hundred productions since it first opened in 1913, it’s not really accurate to refer to the place simply as a “Gossip Girl filming location”.  Truth be told, being that the building is a National Historic Landmark and has been in operation for close to a […]



The New York Palace Hotel

Oct 26th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

Yet another Gossip Girl location that I set out to stalk during this year’s Manhattan vacation was the New York Palace Hotel, a locale which has appeared in pretty much every single episode of the series since it began back in 2007.   Truth be told, though, I actually first stalked this location quite a few years back during my very first trip to the Big Apple, long before Gossip Girl was even on the air.  And, let me tell you, I absolutely fell in love […]



Gossip Girl’s Constance Billard School for Girls and St. Jude’s School for Boys

Oct 23rd, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

Another Upper East Side location that I set out to stalk while in New York two weeks ago was the building used to portray Constance Billard School for Girls and St. Jude’s School for Boys on my new favorite show, Gossip Girl.  So, you can imagine my surprise when, while doing some location research before my trip, I discovered that not one, but FOUR different spots have actually been used to stand in for Nate, Chuck, and the gang’s elite prep school throughout the series […]



Blair Waldorf’s Gossip Girl Apartment Building

Oct 22nd, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

Well, it must be Gossip Girl week here at Iamnotastalker.com because here I am once again blogging about yet another location from the ubiquitous CW series.  While in New York two weeks ago, one of the locales at the very top of my stalking list was the Upper East Side building where Queen Bee Blair Waldorf lives on my new favorite show.  I found this location, once again, thanks to FanPop’s awesome Gossip Girl page and, because I love me some BW, I just simply […]



The Central Park Conservatory Water

Because I spoke only very briefly about the Central Park Conservatory Water in yesterday’s post regarding the filming of Gossip Girl, today I thought I’d do a more in-depth blog on that location and the myriad of filming that has taken place there over the years.  So, here goes.     The Conservatory Water is so named because in the original plans for Central Park, which were drawn up in 1857 by designers Frederick Law Olmstead and Calvert Vaux, an oval-shaped conservatory, or greenhouse, containing tropical […]



Watching The Filming of Gossip Girl

Oct 20th, 2009 | By | Category: Celebrity Sightings

Two weeks ago while in New York, thanks to fave website OnLocationVacations – who I am now seriously thinking of naming my first born after – I was able to watch the filming of Gossip Girl live and in person no less than THREE times!!!!!  Yes, you read that right – THREE TIMES!  For those not familiar with the site, OnLocationVacations features a “Daily Filming Locations” page that chronicles which productions are filming where all over the U.S. – most notably on the island […]



Nate Archibald’s Townhouse

Oct 19th, 2009 | By | Category: TV Locations

Rather than suffer through the re-run abyss airing on most television networks this past summer, my fiance and I instead decided to purchase and watch the first two seasons of the hit CW series Gossip Girl, which neither of us had ever before seen.  Even though Mike, from MovieShotsLA, had been telling me for months that I would love the show, I steered clear of it as I had been under the incorrect assumption that it catered mostly to the teeny-bopper set.  But, let me tell you, once we finally sat down to watch, it didn’t […]
