What You'll Do

With dozens of iconic film scenes set in the Big Apple, New York City is perhaps the world's biggest movie star—particularly when it comes to romantic comedies. Entertainment writers Jennifer Armstrong and Erin Carlson lead you to some of these settings, including sites from When Harry Met Sally, You’ve Got Mail, and The Apartment, and share behind-the-scenes stories and trivia along the way. The day culminates at the bar, where you and your guides watch You’ve Got Mail, followed by a discussion.

Entertainment Writers

During Jennifer Armstrong's decade-long stint writing for Entertainment Weekly, she focused on women's issues in entertainment. Ask her, however, and she'll likely tell you that some of her favorite writing comes from when she was just a kid—one who was obsessed with romantic comedies and Nora Ephron. Since then, her love for film hasn't waned, and after leaving Entertainment Weekly, Armstrong authored two books on pop culture.

Erin Carlson currently works as a staff editor at The Hollywood Reporter, and she has written on the subjects of women's culture and entertainment for Crushable, Yahoo and The Associated Press. Like her friend Jennifer Armstrong, Carlson has a self-professed infatuation with romantic comedies, particularly ones with John Cusack.
