Gossip Girl Locations in New York City

The all important pilot shot is perhaps the series most memorable – Serena Van der Woodson enters Grand Central Terminal right before her official return to NYC. It’s also a stunning display of architecture in its grandeur design – and a must see for visitors to New York.

The Campbell Apartment

While you’re there, be sure to head over to this swanky (and oh so nyc) bar inside Grand Central Terminal, where the opening scene of Serena and Nate takes place on this very bar. Drinks are pricey but the atmosphere is so worth it!

New York Palace Hotel

Home to the Van der Woodson’s and affectionately known as Serena’s lair – the New York Palace Hotel is an icon in the Gossip Girl series. The restaurant inside ‘GILT’ is also known for the scene where Serena enjoys a grilled cheese – a popular item from the menu for fans of the show.

Columbia University

While the only character that decides to attend the university in season 2 is Nate Archibald, we rarely see him there in his freshman year in season 3. In season 4 the Hamilton House is introduced, where Blaire and Serena are recruited into.

The Archibald Townhouse

The stately manor of the Archibald family is located just off 5th avenue and is a popular stop for fans of the show. It is one of the least visited locations in the city, so you can expect to have it all to yourself.
