I promise that this is my very last post about my New York trip (honestly) it might just stem some film related posts though, but don’t worry I still have a few film/tv related photos to share. Some of them are from knowledge gained on the On Location Central Park and/or Bus Tour.
Following the walking tour in Central Park the next day it was time for the Bus TV and Movie tour. Which was leaving next to Ellen’s Stardust Diner which meant we just had to go back for breakfast! To start the tour we are shown a DVD which would go onto show us many different clips from films throughout so we can remember just what scenes were filmed at the location we were currently at, heading to or had been at!
Following the sensational performance of Hello, Dolly we went straight for the stage door and got a fantastic spot at the front of one of the barriers. Quite a lot of people congregated hoping to see Bette, but rumours around the crowd were that she never comes out on a Sunday. Which turned out to be true.
David Hyde Pierce did come out though and he was fantastic, taking plenty of time to make sure he signed everyone’s Playbill and made eye contact saying hello as he was signing. I was super impressed with Niles, yes I could not resist that Frasier reference!
I had been told about this place a lot before going on the trip as the waiters all take turns to sing in the one of a kind diner. So naturally it was on the list of places to go to, we ended up going twice as well. Both times for breakfast, didn’t have to queue early on in the morning which as a bonus, as well as the food being fantastic and the entertainment even better.
Before heading to NYC I had booked in two tours with On Location Tours, which are all TV and Movie themed. Showing the different filming locations in New York City from so many movies that you know and love.
The first one we did was the walking tour around Central Park which was only $12 due to a combo booking with the Bus Tour.
After seeing War Paint on Thursday evening the CD was due to be launched the following day with it going on sale at 9am at Barnes & Noble. You had to head across and get yourself a wristband, was in the queue outside for what felt like forever considering the rain was extremely heavy when in reality it was 15 minutes.
