A large number of movies are filmed in New York City, so it’s pretty common to stumble across a landmark you recognize from the big screen. If you’re looking for NYC movie sites that were in your favorite movie, here are 5 famous scenes to start with.
The Devil Wears Prada
Head to Bubby’s Pie Company for some laid-back fun, just like Andy Sachs does when she struggles to find time away from her high-demand job. This scene is when her visit is cut short when her boss calls with an emergency.
Location: Bubby’s Pie Company, 120 Hudson St.
When Harry Met Sally
Head to Katz’s Delicatessen for a famous New York pastrami sandwich. You can look for the table where Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal sat and chatted in the movie. There’s even a sign in the restaurant that says, “Where Harry met Sally…hope you have what she had!”
Location: Katz’s Delicatessen, 205 Houston St.
P.S. I Love You
The Boiler Room, a mellow bar with cheap drinks, was used to film the scene where Hilary Swank holds a funeral reception. The dark bar was a perfect fit for a dramatic scene, as well as an ode to Gerard Butler’s background in the movie.
Location: Boiler Room, 86 E. 4th St.
Sex and the City
The tall ceilings and chandeliers of Buddakan give off a glamorous vibe, for good reason. This luxurious restaurant is where Carrie and Mr. Big held their rehearsal dinner in the movie.
Location: Buddakan, 75 Ninth Ave.
Maid in Manhattan
You can visit the upscale hotel that Jennifer Lopez works at in the movie Maid in Manhattan. On Park Avenue between 49th and 50th Streets, the posh Waldorf Astoria hotel, seen as the Beresford hotel in the film, is the main backdrop for most of the movie.
Location: Waldorf Astoria, 301 Park Ave.
