"Gossip Girl" Filming Locations in New York City

Explore NYC's Upper East Side!

  • 22

Created by Roadtrippers - June 14th 2016

The appeal in the TV drama "Gossip Girl" is, in my opinion, mostly that everyone wishes they had the glamorous life of a young, popular, rich New York socialite like Serena or Blair. They wore designer clothes, did classy things like go to the ballet, ate truffle grilled cheeses, and (most importantly) had exciting drama, like deciding whether to marry the Prince of Monaco or your on-and-off-again bad boy ex. We commoners can at least get a taste for the rich life of NYC's elite by visiting these Gossip Girl filming locations on the Upper East Side.
