    It's worth a visit if your in New York, located in a lovely quiet area. It is also only about 15mins walk away from the highline so we tied it in with doing that at the same time.  more »

    Don't book a tour for this as its free to go see yourself. It's a quick stop but it's worth it for any Friends fan. We loved having the photo op as we've been fans for years. We also popped into "Cent...  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.

    "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! 😉

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.
