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 […]



Old Town Bar from “Sex and the City”

May 2nd, 2016 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

My recent trip to New York was nothing short of epic and I somehow managed to stalk a good 100 locales while there.  I cannot wait to blog about all of them!  The spot I was most excited about visiting was one that had been perched at the top of my NYC To Stalk list for years, but that I had never actually made it to during any of my previous Big Apple vacays.  I am talking about Old Town Bar, a historic Union Square-area […]



The Den from “Sex and the City”

Jul 13th, 2015 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

It goes without saying that I have a tendency to obsess on things (that fact should be apparent to even my site’s most casual visitors).  Recently, I found myself obsessing over two locations featured in the L.A.-based Season 3 episode of Sex and the City titled “Sex and Another City.”  The first locale I was itching to find was the coffee shop where Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) met up with her old friend “Letterman Lew” (Sam Seder).  The second was the steakhouse where the two […]



Musso and Frank Grill from “Sex and the City”

Jun 29th, 2015 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

I deserve a facepalm for today’s location!  For ages I had been trying to track down the Los Angeles steakhouse where Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) dined with “Letterman Lew” (Sam Seder) in the Season 3 episode of Sex and the City titled “Sex and Another City.”  Because the episode had been filmed over 15 years ago, I figured the restaurant was most likely no longer in existence, but still spent quite a lot of time searching for it regardless.  Then in April, I had a […]
