Follow in Gossip Girl's Footsteps
Gossip Girl is one of America’s most popular television dramas based on the book series written by Cecily Von Ziegesar. Let’s follow its steps and check out the New York City spots where hot young actors like Blake Lively (Serena van der Woodsen), Leighton Meester (Blair Waldorf), Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass), and Chace Crawford (Nate Archibald) take on the roles of young socialites living in Manhattan. Venture into Gossip Girl’s elite society on our Double-Decker Bronx Bus Tour!
Elite Upper East Side
Our Bronx Tour explores one of New York City’s most exclusive neighborhoods, The Upper East Side. You’ll feel as if Gossip Girl is talking to you personally when she says “Hello, Upper East Siders!” as you become an expert on the lifestyles of Manhattan’s elite and experience a day in the life of a young socialite. On this unique NYC sightseeing tour, you’ll visit sites from the show and have exclusive access to special discounts throughout the city.
Further down “Museum Mile” you’ll stop for a photo-op at the famous Metropolitan Museum of Art, on the steps of which many a “Queen B” lunch crew sat. In real life, these steps are often frequented by the girls from the Marymount School, another elite Upper East Side school for girls.
Bustling Midtown Manhattan
A New York sightseeing tour wouldn’t be complete without a view of Central Park, so the Gossip Girl Tour continues west in Midtown past Central Park South. Central Park provides scenery for many Gossip Girl moments including where Blair and Chuck get married in the final episode.
Continue down Fifth Avenue, passed the Empire State Building, where Chuck attempts to “Affair to Remember” Blair (which Blair coined as a verb) in the Season 3 finale. Blair gets caught up in the excitement of Dorota’s new baby and is too late in meeting Chuck.
Take a peek inside this beautiful New York City landmark, Grand Central Station, where the very first scene in the first episode of Gossip Girl takes place when Serena returns to New York City after her mysterious disappearance from “Boarding School” and where Lonely Boy sees the love his life Serena before she has any clue who he is.
