The tour begins in Central Park, the most filmed location in New York City. The first location is Greyshot Arch, which was featured in disaster-film Cloverfield. Central Park is a combination of lush woodland, lakes, gardens and rocky areas. It is the biggest park in The United States, it is even bigger than some countries. Would you dare to get lost in Central Park?
On the verge of Central Park and the Upper West Side is The Green Tavern. This restaurant has been featured in many movies, under which Ghostbusters. Rick Moranis was attacked here and became the key master.
From the mysterious Central Park we go to the sparkly and cozy Upper East Side. The first stop is The Prasada, home to three bachelors from Three Men and a Baby. But wait.. remember the rumor of the boy? The neighborhood might not be so sparkly after all.
The Upper West Side has seen many updates. A lot of the special buildings that we see on this tour, replaced other interesting buildings that do not exist anymore. Perfect setting for a reincarnation movie like Audrey Rose, right? While we walk past locations of several horror movies, we will also see locations of several series ‘You’. Do you know what Joe did in Peach’s townhouse?
The Dakota, just like Tavern on the Green, has been featured in many movies, so a horror movie couldn’t miss out. You will also walk past a location of The House by the Cemetery and you will visit Christian Bateman’s apartment from American Psycho. We end the tour at another apartment building. The building from the recently released Only Murders in the Building.
