    The Steps at the Metropolitan Museum of Art are where Blaire often has lunch with her friends on Gossip Girl. The show makes it seem as if the museum steps are just across the street from the school, but in reality, the locations used for the school and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are many blocks away.

Henri Bendel was used as a shooting location when Jenny Humphrey calls her brother Dan having a "fashion emergency" as she looks for a dress for the Kiss on the Lips Party.
