Unfortunately, Kathleen Kelly’s (Meg Ryan) beautiful children’s bookstore does not exist but her front is still easily recognizable. There has never even been a bookstore in this place but an antique shop whose warm and picturesque setting has seduced the production. She therefore rented the store for several weeks to turn it into a bookstore. The place is now a dry cleaners.

Address: 106 W 69th Street, New York, USA

Cafe Lalo

Kathleen is waiting for Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) inside after they finally decided to meet after their email exchanges. But each one thinks that the presence of the other is just a coincidence and that his real appointment hasn’t arrived yet. A memorable exchange around the book Pride and Prejudice ensues. The place hasn’t changed and the pastries are delicious.

Living in the same neighborhood, Kathleen and Joe cross paths several times without seeing each other at this beautiful little triangular park. Later, they talk together sitting on a bench or walk around the market, which is still held on certain days of the week. You can also see them eating a bite across the street at Gray’s Papaya, whose hot dogs are considered the best in New York.
