What you'll do

On Location Tours, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, has created a brand new tour that takes you to the heart of the East Village. The new tour explores downtown TV & movie filming locations. The tour begins at The Puck Building on East Houston Street featured in Will & Grace and American Psycho. I will walk the group north towards Cooper Square passing locations from Gossip Girl, Sex and the City - the movie and Spider-Man 2. The tour will head further east to St. Mark's Place, the site of many "nights out" in a number of TV shows and films including Desperately Seeking Susan, Broad City, Friends, Mad Men and more. Along the way we'll stop at Veniero's, a family owned pastry shop that goes back to 1894, starring in Law & Order: SVU and Curb Your Enthusiasm. I will lead you to Tompkins Square Park as seen in the new Netflix series Russian Doll, Die Hard: With a Vengeance, The Godfather: Part II and Eat Pray Love. We'll conclude the tour on the Lower East Side highlighting the famous diner from When Harry Met Sally.

This tour was awesome. Matthew was a great, charming and funny guide. His sense of humour and his transitions were absolutely smashing. His movie knowledge in combination with showing us different movie sites got us a perfect entertaining afternoon. For movie and tv series-Fans a definite recommendation and a big „Must Do“!
