The Many Apartments of Carrie Bradshaw on “Sex and the City”

Nov 17th, 2017 | By | Category: Sex and the City Filming Locations

While it is quite common for locations to shift after the pilot episode of a television series is shot (as I’ve mentioned countless times before on this blog), changes are typically few and far between from that point forward.  The vast majority of my favorite shows tend to play fast and loose with their locales, though.  On Beverly Hills, 90210, for instance, not only did two different pads portray the residence of Dylan McKay (Luke Perry), but three exteriors were used to represent both the family […]



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 […]
