We all know this sentence from the famous series Gossip Girl. And if you’re a real fan you have to go to NYC and explore all the famous spots. You can find the locations everywhere in NYC, so the best idea is to take a bike and ride there really quick. You can reach all the spots so much easier and faster.
So first things first. All the rich kids live on the Upper East Side, but that’s not exactly true because Serena van der Woodsen’s apartment is on 300 East 55th Street and not actually at the Upper East Side but is shown in the series as it is for the residence of the van der Woodsen family.
Is the beautiful hotel from Chuck Bass real and how is it actually called? Yaaas, the hotel is real and the name is the same. Thought Cuck’s suite only exists on a TV set in the middle of nowhere? Nop the Empire Hotel (44 W 63rd St, New York, NY 10023) is a very real NYC icon.
Where to meet Blair Waldorf and her Minions? You like to know where the famous steps are? They’re at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (1000 5th Ave, New York, NY 10028). This is where Blaire often has her lunch. In the series it seems that the museum steps are just across the street from their school, but actually the location which is used for the school and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are many blocks apart.
In the first scene Serena is coming home to NYC. But where is this beautiful train station? The Grand Central Station (89 E 42nd St, New York, NY 10017) with it’s beautiful constellations are definitely worth to visit!
Away from Manhattan: Dan Humphrey’s home in Brooklyn is actually a really fancy place. Yes Blair didn’t like it, but the area is most known for its bridge and artsy walls. Trendy Dumbo’s cobblestone streets and converted Brooklyn warehouse buildings are the backdrop for independent boutiques, high-end restaurants and trendy cafes. And it is also known as THE Instagram photo location. Check out the beautiful area in Dumbo (80 Pearl St, Brooklyn, NY 11201) for a Insta worthy photo.
Now it’s time for the Central Park – a must-see on your Gossip Girl spots list. Blair is often feeding the ducks there with Dorota. But there is also the location where Chuck and Blair got married in the final episode. It was a rollercoaster moment for all fans. Blair said “I do” seconds before the cops showed up. You have to check out this beautiful spot: The Bethesda Terrace is located at 72 Terrace Dr, New York, NY 10021
After you biked to all the famous spots, you should definitely dress up for old Serena’s playground and favorite clubs. 1Oak or The Box are the clubs to be for a wild night out!
