Know More about this tour
Your adventure begins north of Times Square at McGeeâs Pub, the inspiration for MacLarenâs on How I Met Your Mother. Weaving down the crowded avenues youâll see the original âSoup Man,â from Seinfeld (still possibly the best soup in NYC), and north up 8th Avenue. Surrounding the circle is Trump Tower, the Time Warner Center, and the Maine Memorial, spotted in Tower Heist, The Other GuysÂ and Enchanted.
Cruising up Broadway away from the fan fare of Columbus Circle the next landmark you canât miss will be the famed Lincoln Center. The fountain positioned center among Lincoln Plaza has been featured countless times since the Centers completion in the 1960s. Unmistakable inÂ Moonstruck, Sweet Home Alabama, Glee, and most recently Pitch Perfect, the center has featured hundreds of performances and events.
Jerry Seinfeld and his gang called the Upper West Side home, showcasing many neighborhood hotspots over the years. Â From now closed H&H Bagels to Grayâs Papaya, where you can still grab a NYC hot dog for cheap, these guys knew how to hang. Their favorite spot to hangout - and our second stop - is âMonks,â a.k.a. Tomâs Restaurant featured in almost every episode ofÂ Seinfeld.
Turning east youâll head along 110th Street, the northern edge of Central Park, into the Upper East Side. Featured in hundreds of productions for its beautiful mansions, world-renowned museums, and of course Madison Avenue shopping.
Museum Mile is home to ten museums, and featured in far too many movies and TV shows to mention at once. Youâll recognize the City of the Museum of New York as Constance Billard School in Gossip Girl. Down the road is the Guggenheim Museum where Isaac and Mary meet in Woody Allenâs Manhattan. Most famous of all is the The Metropolitan Museum of Art and more importantly, âThe Met Steps.â Our third and final stop, thousands of people a day sit on these steps, just like Blair on Gossip Girl and Albert (Kevin James) in Hitch. Inside is the Egyptian Room where Harry and Sally realize their love for one another in When Harry Met Sally.
Crossing over 59th Street youâll be officially leaving Uptown Manhattan and in front of the most filmed building in the world, the Plaza Hotel. Featured in films likeÂ The Way We Were, Almost Famous, American Hustle, and Home Alone 2 the building is a never ending classic. Out front is the Pulitzer fountain, inspiration for the fountain the cast of Friends dance in during the opening credits.
Heading into midtown traffic youâll pass another Trump Tower, a fitting setting as Wayne Enterprises in The Dark Knight Rises and Jordan Beflortâs (Leonardo DiCaprio) penthouse in Wolf of Wall Street.Â Down the block and one of our last locations is the St. Regis Hotel, famous for where Agent Gracie (Sandra Bullock) learns to turn walking into âgliding.â
