If you are a die-hard fan of "Friends", then a visit to this building is worth it. It is pretty neat to see the building on TV right in front of you, and you can imagine that Joey, Chandler, Ross, Monica, Phoebe and Rachel are...More

We walked thru the Village to try to find the "Friends" coffee shop and apartment on a trip to NYC. The write-ups and information about this place are confusing. Most say this was the inspiration for the show even though it was filmed in Hollywood....More

Here I am! Here is the "FRIENDS" apartment that main character of 6 person lived in. There are many tourist where take a picture even now. "FRIENDS" is seems to be a world wide popular drama still. ここに来ました! ここはTVドラマ『フレンズ』で、主役の6人が住んでいたアパートです! 今でもたくさんの観光客が写真を撮ってますね。 フレンズの人気は今でも世界レベルみたいです。

Yes, everyone knows that it’s only the outside building and that nothing was actually filmed there, but still, it’s Friends! It’s in a beautiful area (Greenwich), so make sure you walk around and enjoy the area as well.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

This is the exterior shot of the building used in the comedy TV show "Friends." "Friends" was never shot in New York.
