TAKE A TOUR IN A 1957 STUDEBAKER!
Step back in time and follow in the footsteps of 1950s Manhattan from a classic car featured in the show. Join your tour guide, a local actor, as you cruise around New York City and channel the chic fashion of the era.
On this ‘just-dandy’ tour, you’ll get whisked away to locations used in the series, and you’ll learn about how modern-day New York City was disguised to make it appear as the 1950s. If you want to learn some ‘swell’ insider secrets about filming a period television series, this tour is for you.
A 1957 Studebaker Commander is used for the tour. The vehicle can accommodate up to 3 passengers.
A minimum of two car tours is required for the car tour to operate. If there is not another tour booked the day of your tour, you will be either rescheduled or refunded.
About The 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 perform 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 gig manager. Their work relationship blossoms into a friendship as the two work together to overcome hurdles they encounter when navigating 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 begins touring the country, and the rest of the ensemble continues with life in NYC.
What Will You See On This Tour?
- See the comedy club where it all begins, and reminisce Midge’s debut performance when she’s on ‘Cloud 9.’
- Have a coffee where Abe, Midge’s father, meets with his lawyer in the tense scene in season 2.
- Visit the historic cafe in the East Village where dreamboat Joel and Midge visit.
- Stroll through the famous park where Midge uses her voice and joins a protest.
- Grab a bite at the Euro-American diner central to Midge and Joel’s relationship.
- …and so much more!
- In front of CUNY building at 34th Street and 5th Avenue. Exact location will be provided upon booking.
TOUR STOPS & DETAILS
The first location on the tour is the swanky arts center where Joel introduces his parents to Midge and, well, a ring-a-ding-ding, Penny Pann! You’ll then head to the old-timey bar where Joel gets drinks with his friend Archie. You betcha it still looks like the 1950s inside! You also may 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 Midge finds herself in the spotlight yet again at a protest against a proposed highway (that was almost built right through Manhattan). Rock around the clock and head to the Irish Bar where Midge and crew visit. In real life, they didn’t let dames in this bar until the 1970s!
Taking it back to the pilot episode, you’ll visit the kosher butcher where Midge picks up black-and-white cookies and the lamb for her famous brisket. Now permanently closed, you’ll also 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. This was home to many poets and musicians while it was open.
GREENWICH VILLAGE (cont.)
Fancy some tunes? You’ll 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!
