Breakfast at Tiffany's Most Romantic New York Scenes, Mapped

The 1961 Blake Edwards-directed film Breakfast at Tiffany's, immortalized in the 1990s pop canon by Deep Blue Something, stands the test of time. The romantic comedy, which is handily available to stream on Netflix this Valentine's Day, stars Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly, clad in the now-iconic little black dress and pearls, as an aspiring lady who lunches (a.k.a. a gold digger, but of a very charming variety), who lives in a subdivided townhouse on the Upper East Side. (Which, by the way, is currently on the market for $8 million.) Opposite her George Peppard plays Paul Varjak, a struggling writer who moves into an upstairs apartment due to his relationship with an older woman. Holly, of course, immediately proves alluring, and their romance unfolds over New York City's streets. Based on the Truman Capote novella and featuring iconic music from Henry Mancini (including the mood-setting "Moon River"), the movie manages to be zany, sweet, funny, romantic, and poignant—all at the same time. Because it's a heart-warming classic, get versed in its geography.
