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 “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 […]



Scout Bar from “Sex and the City”

Nov 19th, 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 O’Nieals Grand Street Bar, which stood in for Scout, the watering hole owned by Carrie and Miranda’s ex-boyfriends, Aidan and Steve, on the show.  And even though I had actually stalked this location during last year’s New York vacation and also blogged about it, because I had not been able to venture inside, it was a place I had always planned on returning to.  So, since my good […]



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 – […]



Commerce Restaurant

Nov 10th, 2009 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

One of the locations that I was most excited about stalking while in New York this past month was a little restaurant named Commerce which appeared in the very last episode of fave show Sex and the City.  Well, truth be told, at the time SATC was filmed, the restaurant was known as Grange Hall, but that space closed its doors back in 2004, shortly after filming took place.   A few years later, a nouveau American cuisine restaurant named Commerce opened in the same spot […]



Cafe Luka

Oct 2nd, 2009 | By | Category: This and That

One of my very favorite places to grab a bite to eat in all of New York is a small restaurant located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side named Cafe Luka.  The tiny, little cafe also just happens to be the spot where I ate my first ever New York meal on my first ever New York vacation just about four years ago. My family and I actually happened upon the restaurant quite accidentally one freezing cold morning in December of 2004.  We had just taken […]



Top of the Tower

Feb 10th, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

While there are several restaurants in New York that I LOVE, there is one in particular that stands out far above the rest. That restaurant is named the Top of the Tower and it is located on the 26th floor of the Beekman Tower Hotel. Although the Top of the Tower has been one of my favorite places in all of New York for several years now, I had yet to blog about it because up until a few weeks ago, I didn’t realize it […]



I’ve Got the Hippy Hippy Shake!

Jan 21st, 2009 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I have been a fan of Tom C. Ruz ever since my early teens and during that time Cocktail was, of course, one of my very favorite movies. So I was floored when I found the address of the bar Tom Cruise first worked at in the movie in a book I picked up just before my recent New York trip called Manhattan On Film: Walking Tours of Hollywood’s Fabled Front Lot . So, while in New York last […]



The Campbell Apartment

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

One of my favorite bars in all of New York is called the Campbell Apartment and it is located right inside the most famous train depot of them all, Grand Central Station. I discovered the bar thanks to a guide book I was reading during my first trip to New York, back in December of 2005.

The Campbell Apartment was never actually an apartment at all, but rather the business office of millionaire railroad tycoon John William Campbell. In 1920, after retiring from his position as […]
