The reboot of the jaw-dropping series stars Jordan Alexander as the influential Instagram model-slash-personality Julien Calloway and Whitney Peak as Julien’s artsy half-sister Zoya Lott. The series also stars Savannah Smith as part-time schemer, full-time perfectionist Monet De Haan, Zion Moreno as part-time shade-thrower, full-time stylist Luna La, Thomas Doherty as the new Chuck Bass archetype Matt Wolfe, Eli Brown as uber-rich social activist Otto “Obie” Bergmann IV, Emily Alyn Lind as overachieving socialite Audrey Hope, Evan Mock as Audrey’s boyfriend Aki Menzies and Tavi Gevinson as the spearhead of the new Gossip Girl initiative Kate Keller.

Think How Stella Got Her Groove Back but make a high school influencer from the Upper East Side style. Julien tries to get her brand back on track by going man-hunting for a new prince. But after multiple fails, Max enlists himself to come to Julien’s aid to rebrand her as a more fun version of herself. This turns into a whole different journey that calls for some light-to-medium deceit involving their parents.

Located on 428 Lafayette Street, is the temporarily closed live music venue where Julien was dancing like there was no tomorrow. After hopping from one location to the next on an adventure curated by Max, they stumbled upon some juicy gossip even Gossip Girl themselves couldn’t get ahead of. Don’t let this glamour photo at the bar from Max’s Instagram fool you, a potential (and very public) family scandal was afoot that night.

Bleecker Street is a couple of blocks down, but you can find the most epic food, shopping and club scene on this street. This area is and has been depicted in movies and shows such as No Reservations (starring Catherine Zeta-Jones,) What I Like About You (starring young Amanda Bynes,) Girl Meets World and multiple Marvel movies, including Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. It was also one of the many places protesters marched for justice.

Located on 63 Bedford Street, the Greek cuisine was not something that interested Julien. She was hot on the trail of the mystery woman (played by Elizabeth Lail, who also starred as Beck from the Netflix show YOU) that was on her father’s arm during her escapades with Max. Julien not only found out that they were dating, and he was hiding the woman from her, she also found the secret apartment they would rendezvous at.

THE FRIENDS APARTMENT AND PHOEBE’S APARTMENT BUILDING

If this photo looks familiar, don’t stress yourself out trying to remember where you’ve seen it from. to tell you it’s the building from Friends. Located at 90 Bedford Street stands the building only a few blocks away from Snack Taverna. If there was a bucket list of places in New York City to get a photo in front of, this would be in the top 10 for sure! You could even knock out two birds with one stone around this location! Phoebe’s Apartment is two blocks down from here as well, located at 5 Morton Street.

THE PUBLIC THEATER

Located on 425 Lafayette Street, even though they were at a theater, much of the drama happened off stage. Julien confronted her father about his lies, Max exposed one of his fathers about his potential infidelity and a couple other secrets were revealed. Let’s just say not everyone was being their authentic selves that night.

ARCADIA EARTH

Located on 718 Broadway is the massive Acadia Earth Museum. This place is powered by virtual reality and has so many interactive exhibits that it will make your head spin from shock and delight. Definitely more family-friendly than the show they saw at The Public.
