  • Mead friends, like a ton of grunge here should go. But Rove went from not knowing well the address turned out to be an awful name friends building. If you are passing around this wandering near their friends, but don't address the right ggeonaedo let me know if you do not know well and ask for those passing through. Mead friends like actually woke up the building.

  • If you are into the show and have watched all the episodes, reward yourself with a selfie on the corner facing the building!  more »
  • Ok so this is just the outside of a building, but it's a must for any die hard Friend's fans. There were lots of walking tours of Greenwich village available but we found this very easily on our own.  more »

  • It is an apartment building. You can not get inside it. You can take pictures of the outside. On Friends only the outside of this building was used as the establishing shots for where they lived so it is OK to not go inside.
  • I've been a huge friends fan from day one. Went on a bus trip and among other important sites, I had to stop and see the friends building. It was amazing to see. Even though no actual scenes were filmed there; it was still super cool. Highly recommend you stop and take a picture but only if you're a fan. Otherwise you're just taking a picture in front of a Building. Our taxi driver dropped us right off at the corner. I was worried I'd be the only crazy fangirl who was super excited to do this; but there were lots of others there as well.
  • Great spot for Friends series lovers. Nice cafe too.
  • "Friends" is still so popular all these years on, this building pulls fans in. In the 5 minutes or so we were there, half a dozen people came by just take their own pictures. It still looks just the same as it did in the old cutaways... still not sure where Monica's balcony is though! 😉
  • This place makes you feel like part of the show.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
