The 'Gossip Girl' Guide to New York

Even though Gossip Girl won't be returning until January 28th, those of you in New York City can occupy your idle time with The 'Gossip Girl' Guide to New York -- order a grilled cheese sandwich with truffles at Gilt à la Chuck Bass or shop for luxuries at Henri Bendel à la Blair Waldorf.

I was with my freshman physics teacher last year on the fourth of July, when I desperately needed a restroom run. Luckily, she used to teach at the Packer Collegiate Institute in Brooklyn and convinced the security man to open up the building for use of the restrooms. I remember thinking that the dining hall reminded me of Hogwarts from Harry Potter -- but apparently the Gossip Girl set designers found inspiration in the building too.

Who needs a tour of New York City on one of those touristy double-decker buses when you can experience the city through the Gossip Girl characters themselves? Remind me to refer back to this post when I'm in the city this summer.
