It took ages to find but did not disappoint if you are a Friends fan! The cafe underneath is a quaint gift shop.

As a fan of the show, I wanted to visit the apartment featured in the show however, we pretty much wasted a morning looking for it! Having said that, Greenwich Village is nice to wander around although there are plenty of other/better things to do...More

We walked miles to see the Friends Building. It’s tucked away in quite a nice area. But really it’s just the outside of an apartment block - there’s no Central Perk nearby, just the outside of the building. Plenty of other things to see instead.

To others is might be just a building, but if you are a fan of Friends, than seeing this building is necessary. The area is quite nice to walk around in.

A must for any F.R.I.E.N.D.S fans! It was easy to find with Google maps and definitely worth a visit if your in the area, great photo opportunity!

We were walking down 7th Avenue from Times Square to One World Trade and it was just a little walk from the main street. Although just a building, well worth a look to say you have been.

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 neighborhood 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.
