Let a licensed tour guide show you the greatest back lot in the world


The motion picture industry was born here in New York City. Although production would eventually move entirely to Hollywood California, all the big studios had their corporate headquarters here in New York City. And every studio had a "New York" street. Over the last 50 years location shooting became a regular part of movie making and New York City has certainly served as a not just a backdrop but as a character in a great many films. From the first Shakespeare play ever to be put on celluloid to Seinfeld's diner to the entrance into Mount Olympus, New York City has played it's role like an Oscar worthy performance.

Itinerary

The itinerary depends on you and what you are interested in cinematic-ally. Do you want to see where Carrie Bradshaw's wedding was going to take place? Do you want to see where Holly Go-Lightly lived in "Breakfast at Tiffany's"? The "Friends" or "Ghostbusters" building? Are you a Woody Allen fan and want to run into Annie Hall at the same spot Alvy does at the end of "Annie Hall"? Got a Godfather thing? It is all good and all these sites can be visited. Sites selected are based on what you tell me you are interested in seeing.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: At your Manhattan based hotel or other mutually agreed upon location.

End location: A mutually agreed upon location.

Duration: 3 hours

The weather, traffic, time of year (seasonal crowds for example) as well as how the group moves can effect the duration of the tour and sites covered.

Transportation

We walk and we use the New York City subway system.

What’s Included

Me! One of the greatest guides to ever lead a tour on this rock I call home.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 USD - This is an estimate as there maybe purchases you wish to make.

What’s Extra

Any transportation costs. I use the subway as it is the fastest and cheapest way to get around this town. You will need to purchase a Metro Card for access into the subway system. Depending on our tour and how long you will be in NYC, I will advise on a tour by tour basis which Metro Card is best for you.
Also, any admission fees, medical fees, legal fees or bail postings are the responsibility of the client.

A Recent Review of this tour
