Pershing Square Restaurant from “Friends with Benefits”

Sep 9th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Though most of my stalking adventures consist of copious amounts of time spent tracking down locations from movies and television shows and then heading out to see those sites in person, it does happen on occasion that a locale I have previously visited pops up unexpectedly in a production.  When this occurs, it thrills me to no end.  Such was the case with Pershing Square, a brasserie situated just outside of Grand Central Station in New York.  My family and I had dined at the […]



The Ansonia from “Single White Female”

Aug 29th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

There is no shortage of strikingly beautiful, ornately embellished buildings on New York’s Upper West Side.  I blogged about one of them, The Apthorp, and the circuitous route some friends and I took to stalk it on Friday.  That route included a stop at another gorgeous UWS structure, The Ansonia, easily one of the most breathtaking properties I have ever laid eyes on.  Since the site has appeared in countless productions over the years, including the 1992 thriller Single White Female, I figured it was […]



The Apthorp from “Funny Farm”

Aug 26th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I am the first to admit that, though I am not a natural towhead, I am a dumb blonde through and through.  The Grim Cheaper often kids that all of the hair dye I’ve used over the years has obviously gone to my brain.  Case in point – during a 2008 trip to New York, the two of us came across a massive and beautiful building on the Upper West Side.  We were both struck by the structure’s size and elegance and stopped to peer […]



The Rum House from “Birdman”

Aug 19th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

The Grim Cheaper typically could care less about filming locations, but he is absolutely obsessed with the movie The Godfather.  So I included a couple of locales from the 1972 Best Picture winner on the itinerary for our recent trip to the Big Apple.  One of those spots was Hotel Edison, a historic Theater District lodging that made a brief appearance in the flick.  While we were stalking the place, we happened to strike up a conversation with the super-friendly doorman who informed us that […]



The Inspiration for the “Annie” Orphanage

Jul 22nd, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

My movie obsession began at a young age.  I can pretty much pinpoint it to 1982 when Annie premiered.  I was hooked on the musical from the start.  I watched it over and over and over, eventually wearing out the VHS copy that my parents bought me.  Its locations have also served as a longtime fascination.  Ever since taking my second Warner Bros. tour in 2008, I have known that the Hudson St. Home for Girls, aka the orphanage in the film, could be found […]



Ashley’s Apartment from “Just My Luck”

Jul 20th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I do not have the best taste in movies and am the first to admit it.  Case in point – Just My Luck, a 2006 Lindsay Lohan romcom that I absolutely love.  Have I lost you already?  If so, it’s understandable.  But I find the film adorable.  I’ve seen it about a hundred times and never tire of it.  Part of the appeal is the fact that it takes place – and was largely shot – in New York.  (Some filming also took place in […]



The “You’ve Got Mail” Breakup Restaurant

Jul 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Locations from the movie You’ve Got Mail have been well-documented online on countless sites.  I chronicled quite a few of them on mine – in a December 2007 post, as well as in follow-up posts that you can read here and here.  One spot that hasn’t been mentioned anywhere and one that I was desperate to find was the café where Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) and Frank Navasky (Greg Kinnear) so amicably broke up in the 1998 comedy.  So I got to work in tracking […]



The British Consulate from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 15th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Much of my free time as of late has been spent tracking down missing locations from Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  Ever since writing my post on the apartment where Terry Dolittle (Whoopi Goldberg) lived in the 1986 comedy, I have been just a wee bit consumed with finding other spots featured in the flick.  So much so that I even purchased director Penny Marshall’s 2012 autobiography in the hopes that it might shed some light on the subject.  One locale that I did not need to […]



Terry’s Apartment from “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”

Jul 6th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I’ve made no secret over the years of my love for Jumpin’ Jack Flash.  (You can read the posts I’ve done on the 1986 comedy’s locations here, here, here, and here.)  Whoopi Goldberg is literally perfection in her role as zany New York bank employee Terry Dolittle and I pretty much go around quoting her and the other characters on a regular basis (“Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!  Get Larry, the heavy-set guard!”).  So when a fellow stalker named Mick emailed me in July 2013 […]



Jules’ House from “The Intern”

Jun 8th, 2016 | By | Category: Movie Locations

For our recent Big Apple vacation, the Grim Cheaper and I took a red eye into New York, leaving Palm Springs at 11 p.m. and landing in NYC at 6:30 a.m.  Working off zero sleep, we were obviously exhausted upon arrival (me especially considering the copious amounts of calming drugs I ingested to curtail my flight anxiety), but obviously were not able to check into our hotel at such an early hour.  So what else were we to do, but head out for some stalking?  […]
