ABOUT THE WEBSITE AND BOOK

No doubt about it, New York City is the pop culture capital of the world. And for good reason. Movies, TV shows, iconic photographs, works of literature, landmark buildings, amazing sculptures, and historic cultural events: they all happen here.

While other NYC guidebooks can get you to Central Park, they won't tell you where in the park to find the exact spots where over a hundred of your favorite movies were filmed or dozens of famous album covers were shot. That's why every pop-culture-loving explorer needs a copy of this one-of-a-kind treasure map to all the famous places you've heard or read about over the years.

Ready to explore? The website and book features a multitude of maps and addresses to thousands of locations where some of the greatest moments in pop culture took place, The Pop Culture Lover's Guide to New York City (and the book "Pop Culture New York City: The Ultimate Location Finder ") will lead you to:

• The locations of classic films like Breakfast at Tiffany's and The Godfather, and popular TV shows such as Friends and Gossip Girl *

• Buildings where hundreds of celebrities live, including Celebrity Row along Central Park West *

• The epicenters of cultural revolutions like the Studio 54 nightclub and the Stonewall Inn

•  Hundreds of iconic buildings and sculptures you can see for free * And so much more!

So whether you like movies, TV, theater, music, sports, comics, video games, or literature this book will take you on an exhilarating, not-to-be-forgotten adventure!
