Bethesda Terrace and Fountain

Step into the heart of Central Park at Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, a location that played host to some of the most memorable scenes in Gossip Girl.  One of the most unforgettable scenes etched into Gossip Girl history took place at Bethesda Terrace – Blair Waldorf's wedding to Chuck Bass in the final season. The terrace's grandeur and elegance provided the perfect stage for this emotionally charged moment, making it a standout visual spectacle.

The fountain itself witnessed countless clandestine meetings and romantic rendezvous, adding an extra layer of charm to this picturesque location.

The Met Steps

No Gossip Girl fan can forget the Met Steps – the iconic staircase at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A favorite hangout spot for the show's characters, especially Blair and her minions, these steps were the backdrop for countless power plays, schemes, and fashion-forward moments.

Relive the scenes and feel yourself in the world of high society drama as you climb these steps, imagining the whispers of secrets and scandal that once echoed through the hallowed halls of the Met.

Gapstow Bridge

Not far from Bethesda Terrace is another enchanting spot in Central Park – Gapstow Bridge. This picturesque bridge, surrounded by lush greenery in the summer and amazing views of Upper East Side in the winter, became the backdrop for a charming Gossip Girl scene.

In one memorable moment, Blair Waldorf was seen feeding the ducks by Gapstow Bridge, adding a touch of tranquility to her often dramatic life.

Conservatory Water

Conservatory Water with remote control boats is where Gossip Girl characters enjoyed moments of leisure and contemplation.

In a dramatic twist, it served as the location where Damien dealt drugs from remote control boats, adding an edge to the series. This serene setting took on a darker undertone as it became the backdrop for Little J's first drug deal.
