Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Explore Breakfast at Tiffany's TV & movie locations!
On the New York TV & Movie Sites Tour you will see all the iconic spots in Manhattan that were featured in the classic Oscar-winning movie, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, starring Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly. In Breakfast At Tiffany’s, struggling writer Paul Varjak (George Peppard) moves into Holly’s building and becomes very fascinated by his pretty and quirky neighbor, Holly. However Holly isn’t so predictable and confuses Paul when in public she parties with a sexy, sophisticated air, but when they're alone she changes into a sweet vulnerable bundle of neuroses.
Head to the glamorous Tiffany & Co. on the fabulous Fifth Avenue where in the opening of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Holly Golightly stands at the shop window early in the morning after being on a date all night. The Tiffany & Co. flagship store is a location that cannot be missed when visiting the Big Apple! Its beautiful granite exterior is well known for its tiny window displays, and the store is on the U.S National Register of Historic Places. The store dates back to 1837 when founded by Charles Lewis Tiffany and Teddy Young as a “stationary and fancy goods emporium.” Tiffany & Co. is strongly associated with its Tiffany Blue color, a registered trademark, and has opened stores in major cities all over the world. The flagship store was also used in the film Sweet Home Alabama, starring Reese Witherspoon.
Holly Golightly’s apartment building, where Mickey Rooney played a Japanese landlord, is located at 169 East 71st Street. While not visited on the TV & Movie Tour, the Upper East Side neighborhood is the focus of our Gossip Girl Sites Tour.
