The Big Apple has been featured in so many shows and movies, attracting people to areas that may otherwise have been considered uninteresting and therefore undiscovered.
Many people head to NYC in hopes of drinking a cup of coffee at Central Perk, the coffee shop made famous by the cast of Friends. Unfortunately, the only cafe with the same name is not the same place Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc and co. lounged on the show.
The famous brownstone building Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) lived in has become a major New York City attraction. The lead character of Sex and the City would sit on the steps, clad in sky-high Jimmy Choos, dreaming of love and contemplating life. Since then, the location has become a major tourist attraction, even today, years after Sex and the City went off the air. There's even a Sex and the City bus tour that travels to all the sites made famous on the set.
For many women, taking a photo on these steps is just as important as having a picture in front of the Statue of Liberty.
Personally, I'd want to check out the Devil Wears Prada set. Add Gossip Girl to that list too -- where all the high life, glamour and chic partying goes on.
