Carrie and Big’s Penthouse from the “Sex and the City” Movie

Jul 31st, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I know I am in the minority when I say that I like the 2008 Sex and the City movie.  Was it the greatest flick ever?  No.  But I did enjoy it.  Seeing it was like being with old friends again, friends I’d missed ever since the HBO television series went off the air in early 2004.  The more I watch it, the more it grows on me.  Though, again, I know I am in the minority.  One aspect of the movie that audiences did […]



Soup Burg from “Sex and the City”

May 10th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I am the first to admit that I get fixated on the most random things.  A few years back, I became obsessed with identifying the diner featured at the very end of the Season 1 episode of Sex and the City titled “Models and Mortals.”  Though the eatery only appeared briefly, I was consumed with tracking it down.  What can I say?  I love a good diner.  It took some legwork to find the place, but find it, I did.  Sadly, by that time, Soup […]



Strand Book Store from “Sex and the City”

Mar 8th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I have made no secret of my love for bookstores on this blog, especially in recent weeks (as evidenced here and here).  I literally cannot get enough of them!  So when I spotted a book boutique pop up in the Season 2 episode of Sex and the City titled “The Freak Show,” which I was re-watching shortly before my trip to New York last April, I knew I had to track it down and stalk it.  Come to find out, the place is one of […]



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 “Sex and the City” Starbucks

Aug 1st, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

One of the best things about starting this blog is the people it has put me in contact with – a myriad of fabulous individuals who share my unique affection for filming locations.  One such fellow stalker, a New Yorker named Gary, has gifted me with countless Big Apple locales since we first started exchanging emails way back in 2010.  Most of Gary’s knowledge comes from driving a cab for three years.  The job took him all over NYC, made him familiar with its nooks […]



Arnold’s Turtle – The Inspiration for Central Perk on “Friends”

Jul 25th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

It appears that my posts have been heavy on filming location inspiration as of late.  On Friday, I blogged about the Annie orphanage and the two buildings that it was modeled after.  And here I am today with another spot that served as inspiration – this one Arnold’s Turtle Vegetarian Café, the eatery that Central Perk from Friends was based upon.

I first learned about the place in a 2015 The Huffington Post article titled “8 Behind-the-Scenes Stories You’ve Never Heard About Friends” written by Todd […]



The “Sex and the City” McDonalds

Jul 13th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

Today’s location is a bit of a fail and a lucky twist all in one.  My mom always says to trust in the universe – and she’s right.  Things happen for a reason.  This locale – easily one of my most-wanted ever – is proof of that.  I am a pretty simple girl when it comes to most things, especially food.  I’ll take McDonald’s over a fancy restaurant any day.  So when Aleksandr Petrovsky (Mikhail Baryshnikov) and Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) dined at an […]



Stuyvesant Square Park from “Sex and the City”

May 25th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

At the risk of this blog becoming solely Sex and the City-based, here I am yet again with yet another locale from the hit HBO series.  For those of you non-SATC fans out there, don’t worry, I will be chronicling NYC sites from other productions soon.  I will also be interspersing New York spots with ones in L.A., as well, to break up any sort of location monotony.  For today, though, it’s all about SATC and SJP.  I bring you Stuyvesant Square Park, a spot […]



Famous Original Ray’s Pizza from “Sex and the City”

May 18th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

The Grim Cheaper and I used to visit New York at least once a year.  Prior to this recent trip, though, we had not been to Manhattan since October 2009!  Being separated from my favorite city for almost seven years was quite a hard pill to swallow.  During that time, I accumulated a ridiculously large list of must-see Manhattan filming locations that were chronicled in various files in my office and on my computer.  Because our recent trip was booked very last minute, I did […]



Two Boots To Go West Pizza from “Sex and the City”

May 13th, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

There’s nothing quite like a slice of New York pizza!  Just watching characters eat a piece on TV or in a movie is enough to make me drool.  So I, of course, had long been dying to stalk the Big Apple pizzeria that appeared in the Season 6 episode of Sex and the City titled “Great Sexpectations.”

In the episode, Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) head to a pizza place for a second dinner after not being fulfilled by their meal […]
