Wollman Ice Skating Rink

Dec 28th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I’m sticking with my Christmas stalking theme for one more day – even though it’s already December 28th – as I had originally intended to publish this post on Christmas Eve, but, unfortunately, ran out of time.  As I’ve said many times before, though, it’s better to be late than never!   So, here goes!  One New York location that definitely belongs in any collection of Christmas movie locales is Wollman Ice Skating Rink, a spot which appeared in one of my very favorite holiday flicks […]

Bethesda Fountain and Terrace

Nov 16th, 2009 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

Just around the corner from the Central Park Boathouse Cafe, which I blogged about on Friday, is another New York landmark known as Bethesda Fountain and Terrace.  Because the area is one of my favorite places in all of New York, I’ve actually stalked it numerous times during my many trips to the Big Apple, but, for some reason, never thought to blog about it.  Which is actually quite ironic being that the fountain has been immortalized in countless movie and television productions over the […]

The Central Park Boathouse Cafe

Nov 13th, 2009 | By | Category: Marilyn Monroe Locations, Sex and the City Filming Locations

One of the locations that I was most excited about stalking while in New York last month was a little restaurant named the Central Park Boathouse Cafe, also known as the Loeb Boathouse.  And although I’ve stalked this location once before – and even blogged about it – because the restaurant is not open for business during the winter months when we usually visit New York, I’d never been able to actually eat there.  Until my most recent trip to the Big Apple, that is.  […]

Pete’s Tavern

Nov 12th, 2009 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

Yet another Sex and the City location that I stalked while in New York last month was a spot that touts itself as New York’s oldest continuously operating bar and restaurant.  And while there are actually quite a few watering holes claiming to be New York’s most long-established, Pete’s distinguishes itself thanks to the fact that it first opened up in 1864 – when Abraham Lincoln was in office! – and has never closed since.  Like not ever!  Not in the 30’s during Prohibition – […]

The “Big” Paddleball Court

Nov 6th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another day, another Big location.  And, sadly, this is actually the last Big location that I have to blog about.    Well, from this year’s New York trip, anyway.  Being that fellow stalker Owen recently tracked down both the MacMillan Toys headquarters and Tom Hank’s loft from the movie, it looks like I’ll have a few more Big locations to stalk during next year’s New York vacation.    But for now, the last and final Big  locale that Owen, my fiancé, and I visited during […]

The Plaza Hotel – New York’s Most Exciting Hotel Experience?

Jan 15th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

One New York building that I have long been wanting to stalk is the famed Plaza Hotel – a location that was referred to in Home Alone 2: Lost In New York as “New York’s most exciting hotel experience”. During my first trip to the Big Apple, in December of 2005, the Plaza was one of the very first locations I dragged my boyfriend to. And I was absolutely dismayed to discover that the famed hotel had been closed. How could a New York institution […]

The Exterior of the Bar from “13 Going On 30”

Dec 31st, 2008 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Another filming location I have been absolutely obsessed with finding for YEARS is the New York restaurant where Jenna hit on the 13 year old boy in fave romantic comedy 13 Going On 30. Ever since the movie was released four years ago I have been searching New York City streets hoping to find the restaurant featured in the movie, but having absolutely no luck. And then, just before I left on my recent New York vacation, a light bulb went off in my head […]
