The Humphrey Loft and the Brooklyn Inn, Gossip Girl
One of the more notoriously inaccurate—and thus, fun to be smug about—depictions of Brooklyn, Gossip Girl famously told everyone the "artsy" Humphrey clan lived in Williamsburg, then proceeded to shoot any and all Brooklyn scenes around DUMBO. The interior of Rufus' too-good-to-be-true-for-an-aging-90's-rockstar loft was actually shot in Long Island City, but for the exteriors, the crew used a building 455 Water St. You could also hop on the F and head over to The Brooklyn Inn, which featured heavily as the "struggling former speakeasy" Vanessa and Chuck tried to save, in one of the show's more convoluted plot lines. In reality, it's just a bar, but it's a very good one.
