Spotted: Five Locations The "Gossip Girl" Bus Tour Won't Hit
Don't be mistaken, we are genuinely excited about the "Gossip Girl" bus tour coming in May from On Location tours. After all, it is no longer okay to be seen boarding the "Sex and the City" bus, and the presence of a tour seems to say that our favorite Upper East Siders have made their mark on Manhattan (as if there was ever any doubt). But there are some places that even the best designed bus tour can't reach, and thanks to our Gossip Girl Map, we know exactly where they are:
Bethesda Terrace in Central Park -- Blair and Serena had a teary reunion in the first season in a place inaccessible by bus. They probably did that on purpose, but how did they get their drivers to go in?
The Humphreys' neighborhood -- Granted, the show we know and love tends to play fast and loose with locations in Brooklyn, placing the loft where Rufus, Jenny and Dan live on some corners that don't really exist. But that bus was never going to another borough anyway, so it's best to explore on foot.
Any club mentioned on the show -- Groucho Marx once said that he wouldn't belong to any club that would have him as a member. Well, any club cool enough to be mentioned on "Gossip Girl" won't take a busload of tourists. (The "Sex" bus gets around this by opening a bar at about 4PM especially for the tour.)
Communitea, Vanessa's sometimes-job -- Crazy V is often puttering around at the art gallery for plot-related reasons, but she also waits tables in Long Island City, where the van der Woodsen-Humphrey clan celebrated Thanksgiving in the first season. Break out your best neon colors and giant earrings!
Carter Baizen's secret poker game -- Even though the show gave out the location on GPS, we're told it has since moved after that whole Nate Archibald thing.
