Crowds Of Friends Fans Try To Get Into Monica And Chandler's Apartments Every Day
Who hasn't dreamed of lounging around Central Perk, nursing a bowl of coffee with five of their best friends?
Turns out, thousands of Friends fans have flocked to the apex of Grove and Bedford Streets, New York City, hoping to do just that.
It's the exact spot where Joey, Chandler, Monica and Rachel lived. Sitting in Central Perk, they often referred to 'upstairs', proving Monica and Chandler's apartments were in the same building.
BUT GUESS WHAT. CENTRAL PERK IS NOT ACTUALLY THERE.

And you can't get into the gang's apartments, either.
A tiny cafe called The Little Owl sits in Central Perk's place, receiving a constant stream of disappointed Friends fans.
Employee Austin Cook told The Independent they can be seen peering up at the wall above, hoping to catch a glimpse of Mon and Rach on the balcony.
“Lots of people want to go upstairs into the apartment,” he says. “They're so disappointed when they learn [the show] was shot on a soundstage.”
So there's really no Central Perk? This sucks.
"Then they realise that’s not real, either,” Mr Cooks says, “Because there's no way that could fit in this tiny space.”
Sigh. Who'd be so gullible as to hope that everything is exactly the same in real life, as it is in the show, which ended 12 years ago? Not us. Nope. Nooo way. Nah.
If you need us, we'll be in the corner (crying, booking a one way trip to LA, where the sitcom set really was. Or at least looking up FriendsFest tickets).
