If you’ve seen “Friends,” then you know that there are quite a few locations in New York that the characters visit. You can visit some of these same locations if you have a trip planned to New York so that you get to take pictures of some of the same scenes and items that were in the television show.
Ross was always into dinosaurs in the series. The American Museum of Natural History worked at this location for a few years. He enjoyed working with the dinosaurs, and you can see some of your own if you visit the museum. Aside from dinosaurs, you can check out the space exhibit and an exhibit with animals.
One of the popular locations that you should visit in New York is the apartment where the group lived. You can’t visit the actual location where the show was filmed because it’s in California, but you can view the exterior of the building where the group lived. Bedford Street offers the best view of the apartment building as well as Grove Street. These are also locations where the group sat in front of the building during the opening credits.
Bloomingdale’s was a store where Rachel was seen quite often in the show. She got her fashion career started in this store, and it became a place where she enjoyed shopping with her friends.

The large fountain

The fountain itself isn’t really there, but you can see the background images that were in the credits. There is a small fountain at the location, but it’s not a replica of what you see. However, there is a small pool of water where you can throw coins in and use as a backdrop for pictures.
Joey used to act on stage quite a bit in the show before he became a big-time doctor on a television soap opera. The theatre where Joey acted is a location that is the same as the one in the show. You can take a tour of the building and even catch a show or two if they are showing.
If you really want to seek the truth behind the series, then take a tour of Warner Brothers.
