New York City Part 2

As I said before, I’m awful with directions.

It’s a good thing Jennifer knew where she was going.

She got us safely to our OnLocation movie tour where a bus would drive us around to different places where movies were filmed.

I really liked our guide. She was full of energy and her name was Roseanne. I love the show Roseanne.

We drove by Central Park:

Scenes from Enchanted were filmed here.

Trump Tower. There’s Donald Trump going, “You’re fired!”

The Flatiron Building.

You see that guy? His head was bleeding and he was walking around going, “Could somebody PLEASE give a cigarette to a guy whose head is bleeding?” There certainly are characters in New York, let me tell you. Jennifer and I also passed a singing naked old lady cowgirl. We were disturbed.

Here’s Jennifer and I in front of the I Am Legend house. I never saw it.

Katz’s Deli! You can't really see it but it's in the corner. You get a happy dance if you know the significance of it.

Jennifer walking into Dash. Yes, that’s the Kardashian’s store. No, I wasn’t impressed. Some security guard was inside going, “You can’t take pictures of the merchandise.” Someone from our group did buy something. It was a chick who was a Snooki lookalike. It was disturbing. Newsflash: orange skin does NOT look good. Nor does poofy hair.

Law & Order is filmed here a lot.

This is the firehouse where Ghostbusters was filmed.

The firemen and women are proud of this fact:

Some rich guy in a Lamborghini passed the bus:

Does this look familiar?

Yup. The Cosby Show house. The owners got $1300 per outside shot. Not from us. The show. I wish a sitcom wanted shots of my house.

After the tour, we went to the Hard Rock Café for dinner:

Yes, I needed that drink. After all the walking, my feet were like, “What is going on?” Plus, it was hot. I felt like my face was going to melt off.

Then we got to see Wicked!

Go see it. It’s fabulous. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to know who the heck played Boq because he was pretty attractive and plus, I liked saying the name Boq.

I’ll end with a photo of this:

Let’s pretend you’re on Jeopardy. I’m Alex Trebec except I have a vagina.

What building is this?

*Cue Jeopardy music*


  1. The building in "Friends"!

    Umm.. Katz Deli has awsome hotdogs and pastrami...

  2. Even if he DID have a vagina, I would still think Alex Trebek is hot. Just sayin'.

    I especially loved your illustration of Donald Trump. You captured his hair perfectly!

  3. looks like a great time! I love Katz's!

  4. It's the Friends building!! Duh!!! :o)

    I still watch that show.. everynight @ 10pm... gosh... I miss it..

    Looks like you had a great time in NY!!!

  5. yes I recognized the Friends building! Except, where is their balcony, the one they would watch the ugly naked man from?

  6. Yay, you guys rock, it is the Friends building. *Happy Dance*

    The balcony was on the set that they had in Los Angeles. They just used this building for an outdoor shot.

  7. I love NYC and I've seen Wicked. SOOOOOOO GOOD!

  8. I liked Wicked, but I didn't LOOOOOVE it. I think it was all the hype. It just didn't live up to my expectations.

    I miss NYC so badly!

  9. um either friends or Seinfeld!!!

    looks like an awesome trip!!

  10. Is it me or does Trump Tower make you think Donald Trump might be compensating for something?

    If you don't like scary movies I don't suggest you watch I Am Legend. It scared the bejesus out of me. I'm talking popcorn and soda flying scared. What a mess!

  11. I would totally LOVE to go on this tour.

    What an awesome trip.

  12. One of my all time fave shows...Friends!

    Looks like a fun trip!

  13. Sounds like a great trip, NYC is fun.

  14. Man, I love NY! I miss you, NYC!

    Looks like a fabulous time... I'm jealous.

    And Wicked is awesome, I saw it in Chicago, moved up to my favorite musical :)

  15. the jeopardy music is stuck in my head. TYVM. ;)

  16. Love the opportunity to see the GHOST BUSTERS land mark!!! Love it!
    Looks like you had a blast!

  17. Looks like you two had a lot of fun! That tour looked amazing!

  18. Wow you really saw it all....naked cowgirl is scary but the naked orange cowboy is just as scary!

  19. Start your happy dance - Katz's Deli from When Harry Met Sally!

  20. Wow, it looks like you had a great time! I *might* be a *tad* jealous - but I won't let that interfere with our friendship! ;-) One of these days I'll get to NYC; one of these days....

  21. I know it, but everyone else already answered, so you won't know if I really knew or if I peaked.

    FWIW, Snookie is NOT from Poughkeepsie. She is from Marlboro, which is not only the other side of the tracks (2 sets, actually) but the other side of the river and in a different county... and yes, it DOES matter! Princess of Poughkeepsie my toe!

  22. Thanks for the fun tour! Sounds like you had a GREAT time in NYC!

  25. If you haven't seen I am Legend, don't bother, it was BOOOORRRRINNG!! And pointless.

  26. Just neat! Glad you had a ball!

  27. Totally from Friends! I love that show, I've got a few of the seasons, and I think I've seen every episode at least once. I was an avid watcher when it was on Thursday nights. I miss it...

  28. LOVE New York! I've only been once but really want to go again sometime.

  29. You look really skinny.

    Glad you had fun.

  30. I really suck at Jeopardy. I am glad you have smart readers.


  31. I thought Fiero was pretty attractive. But that was a few years ago and he was actually Joey MacIntyre. Shocking.

  32. Great shots of your New York Trip! And after all that running- you totally deserved that Bannana Split & Frozen Hot Chocolate. (oxymoron?) LOL

  33. Great shots, Amber- I am so envious of your trip...I miss the North, and home.
    Dont watch Legend. You'll cry when the dog dies. Worst part of the whole movie. Somebody shoulda warned me.
    Cant let that happen to you...


Thanks for the comment!
