NYC Sightseers Can Now Take the TCM Classic Film Tour

Did that recent Anthony Weiner-New Yorker cover give you a hankering for more King Kong action? Do you pine to honor the arrival of Kim and Kanye’s baby with some Hitchockian flair?

Well, even if it’s just a matter of getting rid of out-of-town visitors for a few hours, there’s now the option of the TCM Classic Film Tour. It encompasses the Empire State Building, North by Northwest and more:

You’ll stop at the market showcased in Manhattan and You’ve Got Mail. You’ll see Holly Golightly’s brownstone from Breakfast at Tiffany’s… You’ll even have the chance to match Central Park filming locations to movie clips from various periods in the city’s history.

TCM is partnered with On Location Tours. The three-hour excursion departs every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 11:30 a.m. from the vicinity of Broadway and 51st Street. Tickets are $43 for adults and $27 for children.
