  • Most people have watched the show "friends" and most people would find it a cool, unique photo op to get a selfie with the building behind them. It's 10 minutes and near bleaker street. Worth the time...  more »
  • For fans of the cult tv series of the 1990s Friends this place will always be important for everyone else-nothing special. House with stairs. Made the photo myself and went on.

  • For a fan who followed the whole series is that it has great melancholy ... to see the location outside of the House where lived the famous tenants is a daydream ... Must!!!

  • 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.
