“At first we didn’t have a lot of access to New York City, but very quickly, I think people recognized if you were on the show that was a good thing. We always saw the show as a love letter to New York City.” – Josh Schwartz
Whether you were a fan of Chuck and Blair or Serena and Dan, it’s hard to deny the real star of Gossip Girl was New York City.
Not since Sex and the City has a TV show captured the glamor, fashion, food, music, and iconic architecture of NYC with such love and passion.
The series even became a tourist destination, drawing fans from around the world who wanted to catch a glimpse of the cast filming, too. Over the past few years we’ve helped OLV readers from Australia, Brazil, Germany, Spain, Venezuela, China, and dozens of other locations across the world meet the cast of Gossip Girl on the streets of New York City.
And, on a personal note, Gossip Girl helped make OLV what it is today. The enthusiasm GG fans shared for the show spilled over onto our site through their photos, tips, and comments. We will also be forever grateful to all of the Gossip Girl fans who helped spread the word about our site and have stuck with us even though show has ended.
