Join us for a Marvelous tour!

Take a look at where acclaimed series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was shot on location in New York City. All over Manhattan, you’ll see locations from all three seasons of the Amazon Prime series, and you’ll learn about how the crew disguised modern day NYC to make it appear as the 1950s you see in the TV show. At the start of the series, Mrs. Miriam “Midge” Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) lives in the Upper East Side with her husband Joel (Michael Zegan) and two kids. As the series progresses, her life gets upended by her decision to pursue stand-up comedy, as she starts to explore downtown and performing in the West Village.

Midge lives in the same building as her parents Abe and Rose Weissman, played by Marin Hinkle and Tony Shalhoub. She also meets Susie Myerson (Alex Borstein) at the Gaslight Café, who eventually becomes her manager as the two navigate a male dominated industry. The first season is shot almost entirely in New York, and the second season takes some of the characters to Paris and the Catskills. The third season of the show introduces several new characters as Midge beings touring the country, and the rest of the ensemble continues with life in NYC.

Gramercy:

Hot set! The first location is the swanky arts center where Joel introduces his parents to Midge… and to Penny Pann. You’ll then head to the old timey bar where Joel gets drinks with his friend Archie and it still looks like the 1950s inside! You also might recognize the bar from Mad About You, where Ursula works (Phoebe’s twin sister from Friends, both played by Lisa Kudrow!)

NYU Campus & Bowery:

Next, it’s time for a stroll in the park seen multiple times in the series. You might remember it best from the episode where Miriam finds herself in the spotlight yet again at a protest against a proposed highway that was almost built right through Manhattan. You’ll then head to the Irish Bar where Midge and crew visit. In real life, they didn’t let in dames until the 1970s!

Greenwich Village:

Right from the first episode, visit the kosher butcher where Mrs. Maisel picks up the lamb for her famous brisket and black-and-white cookies. Now permanently closed, you’ll see the main comedy club from the series as well as an old café which was seen in Maisel as well as Mad Men and Inside Llewyn Davis. Home to many poets and musicians while it was open, you’ll remember this location from season 1. 

Next, it will feel like you’re going into a time machine when you step into the music store, the very store where Midge gets the old “dirty” comedy records to listen to. Golly! You’ll then jump forward to the second season to see the cafe where Abe (Tony Shalhoub) meets with his lawyer. Yikes!
