I was watching Friends for the umpteenth time. Whenever they showed the apartment, I used to wonder if it still exists and if so what it looks like. So here I was Googling for 'Bedford Street' (I had seen it in one of the shots of the apartment) and then looking around in Google Maps.
After a bit of searching, and using the wonderful 'Street view' in Google maps, I located it!
Here is the link.
