The TV Tourists

Our fair city appears again and again in TV shows these days -- in fact, there are so many, it would take forever to name them all; it might be easier to name the shows that are not set in NYC.

That said, there are a few shows currently on TV, namely "Gossip Girl" and "Mad Men", that are set in a glamorous version of NYC where the characters spend an inordinate amount of time in hotel bars. And since there's been a huge hotel bar boom in the last few years, some of them are using there appearances on these shows (and others) to lure in customers. You can read this interesting article here about how these hotel bars are using their fifteen-minutes of fame to develop long-term customers.

And for those of you interested in seeing parts of NYC that existed in other TV shows past and present, you can check out On Location Tours for more info.
