HBO’s Golden Globe winning hit-series ‘Girls’ exploded onto the national stage and has gotten tourists and New Yorkers in a flutter to find all of the hot locations mentioned on the show. NewYork.com, the ultimate resource for anything and everything New York, is offering the first ever one-stop guide showcasing all of the hidden places featured on HBO’s ‘Girls’ in order to help fans explore the trendiest spots in the city. Visit NewYork.com for the full guide along with insider information on New York City’s most popular attractions, Broadway shows, shopping, and more. Check out a sneak peak of a few of the locations featured in the NewYork.com’s one-stop “Guide to ‘Girls”’ below.
Tom & Jerrys, 288 Elizabeth Street in the Lower East Side
NewYork.com Insider Tip: Tom & Jerry’s is a popular watering hole for New York’s journalist and blogger crowd, though in reality, the space looks almost unrecognizable from the way its portrayed in the show. Worth it because this is the scene where you fall in love with Jessa, if you hadn’t already been drawn in by her British accent and bohemian clothing. It’s also one of the best “normal” bars to meet for a casual drink in the area.
Spoonbill & Sugartown in Williamsburg, 218 Bedford Ave
NewYork.com Insider Tip: Spoonbill & Sugartown handpicks thousands of new and used books every month. Expect to find a friendly staff and an in-house cat. Worth it for its easy accessibility and as a fun place to browse for books. The shop looks just like it does in Girls.
Cafe Grumpy, 193 Meserole Avenue in Greenpoint
NewYork.com Insider Tip: Cafe Grumpy is actually a chain of coffee stores with four locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn known for hand-roasting small batches of specialty-grade coffee on a restored Probat coffee roaster. Worth it because the real clientele is made up of Hannah-esque freelance writers and twentysomethings, and with so many scenes shot here, it’s a key stop. Plus they’ve got great coffee.
BabyCakes, 248 Broome Street on the Lower East Side
NewYork.com Insider Tip: The ladies on Sex and the City made Magnolia cupcakes famous, but Lena Dunham, known for eating cupcakes in the bathtub on Girls, seems to prefer the vegan and gluten-free treats at this independent cupcake shop. Worth it if you’re in the mood for something sweet and delicious, and the surrounding Lower East Side was the original gritty-cool neighborhood before Williamsburg.
