About this New York tour
The Big Apple is a big ham, showing up in a million movies and TV shows and often stealing the scene without saying a word.
New York's rugged good looks are a big part of the explanation. See, movies in L.A. and many other big production towns tend to shoot on back lots and giant soundstages. But in New York, it's the real-life texture of the city itself that sets the stage – the buildings, parks, landmarks, bars, coffee shops, bridges, even the actual streets, mean or otherwise. They're where Gossip Girl and the Sex and the City girls and the Girls girls roam into adventures. And where the Friends, and Will & Grace, and the Seinfeld gang live and go out to eat (but not for soup). It's also where Law & Order solves its crimes, and Apprentice contestants get fired.
This action-packed tour covers many of these locations and more, including some 40 settings made famous in movies like The Devil Wears Prada, Spider-Man, and I Am Legend. And you'll be well entertained; you may even find yourself belting out TV theme songs or killing it at TV Trivia.
And, since this town's also home to a slew of live shows like The Tonight Show, The Late Show, America's Got Talent, and SNL, your tour guide will share tips on how to get tickets for some of the most popular ones.
The journey ends at McGee's Pub – inspiration for MacLaren's Pub in How I Met Your Mother. They have a ton of cool show swag around the place, and a HIMYM menu – no doubt featuring "The Best Burger in New York."
Question 1: What Smurfs body part ...
The 2005 pilot of How I Met Your Mother featured a blue French horn that Ted stole after Robin said she liked it on their first date. From that point on, it occupied a permanent place in her apartment – and HIMYM fans' hearts – as it began a story arc of its own that lasted nine seasons. Even today, Etsy is awash with listings for blue French horn charms and paraphernalia.
