This apartment building is off the beaten path of tourist attractions, and is just that - an apartment building. The show was not filmed here, nor did anyone from Friends step foot here, so you have your "wow - cool!" moment of recognition, take your...More

As a huge friends fan this was a must see for my sister and I. It’s one of those moments”oh that’s cool” and you take a photo and move on. However it is located in Greenwich Village so it’s a lovely place to explore. It...More

It’s got to be done if you are a Friends fan. Disappointed there is no Central Perk below as it would be so cool ... Other great coffee shops in the area though 🍮

This has to be the most idiotic waste of time someone could spend in NYC. Droves of tourists taking selfies in front of a building that appeared in a TV show for two seconds. No..FRIENDS was not filmed here. No one from the cast ever...More

The cafe underneath definitely missed a huge marketing opportunity. You can take a picture of the building but that's it. If the cafe below was slightly friends related I would have gone it. However it's not worth the trip if your tight for time.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the

addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and

this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

This is the exterior shot of the building used in the comedy TV show "Friends." "Friends" was never shot in New York.
