  • If your a fan and walking down Greenwich Village its nice to walk by, but if you go to New York for a couple days don't spend time to see this building except if you are an hardcore fan! Because its j...  more »
  • I'm still a fan of the show "Friends" and when I was in New York City this past weekend I had an opportunity to visit The Little Owl Restaurant. I sat at the bar and had their signature wine and meatb...  more »
  • Ok so it's just a building but being a Friends fan it was good to view it in person. A little bit out of the way to get there but nonetheless glad we made the effort.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • "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.
