Upper East Side

Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl focuses on a cast of rich young adults living in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. In their world, the people living in Brooklyn are in poverty and they only associate with the elite upper class. Many episodes are located at events such as Balls, Galas and Fashion Shows. They’ve had fashion icons as guest stars, like Alexa Chung and Vera Wang. The show has a huge focus on designer clothing and inspired a generation of people watching the show to want to be able to afford these clothes and live the lifestyle of Serena Van Der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf.
