  • Arrived there expecting to see something more than just a building. Not what I expected. There is a tiny restaurant below which is very busy. Honestly not worth the trip. If u want the photo just Goog...  more »
  • We were expecting to see a friends apartment however it’s just the outside of the building. The little owl is a tiny room downstairs and long wait times to go eat there so not worth the visit.  more »
  • Great place for any Friends fan to visit. Feels so familiar after watching the series for so long. Definitely a highlight being in such a special place as a Friends fan. Easy to find.  more »

  • Great place for any Friends fan to visit. Feels so familiar after watching the series for so long. Definitely a highlight being in such a special place as a Friends fan. Easy to find.
  • As expected! Cool corner/intersection in Greenwich village. Not all that hard to find and I imagine there’s always a little - large crowd of people on the opposing corner so you can just flock to them. Surrounding area is pretty residential but just a block or two away is Bleecker which was full of shops and restaurants if you want to make a full afternoon around visiting the area.
  • This is neat, but only for the biggest fans. It is not particularly near other tourist destinations (about a 10-15 min walk from the nearest subway) and you cannot go inside. Good opportunity for a selfie but I'd leave it off the itinerary next time.
  • For anyone who was in his 30' around late 1990' this is an awesome and interesting experience. The building itself resemblance the opening theme of Friends. Place is easy to find - just follow the mark on Google Maps and you get there. Most probably you will see others lookig5at the building.
  • Simply put this is a building exterior, to most there isn't anything unique about it but to fans of the show Friends it is a cool photo moment. When in the neighbourhood be sure to check out the local restaurant/cafe hot spots.

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.
