  • This could be any building anywhere in New York. If you're nearby it's worth seeing as it's the iconic friends building but really don't bother going out of your way.  more »
  • I'm one of the others, not a friends fan but can obviously see the attraction to those that are. Taken here as part of a tv and movie tour and got photos outside of it. The fact that it was only used ...  more »
  • The truth is that it has no appeal, is the typical image showing the building where "live" Monica, Rachel, chandler, and joey but live is smaller muuuuuucho

  • "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! 😉
  • If you like friends, then this is where it's supposed to have happened. Although I don't understand why they went to central perk for coffee, which is presumably near central park, when they had a perfectly good coffee shop at the bottom of their building..
  • Priceless experience for the Friends lovers! Of course don't expect Central Perk on the ground floor.
  • If you are seeing this means you are like me, friend's fan. You absolutely have too see this. I was so amused. Its cute area with nice streets. You may like to explore the area.
  • Slightly disappointing how much smaller it is in person. You still see small crowds of people show up on the corner taking out pictures.
