When Anna and her friends got to Paris, the Hotel Gulaszky exterior scenes are shot at 1107 Fifth Avenue, a building also used as a filming location in The Undoing. The lobby of the Lotte New York Palace Hotel (a favorite location on the original Gossip Girl) as the interior of the Parisian hotel. In the exterior shots, a Parisian style newsstand has been added to the block along with other details but you’ll catch an MTA bus sign in the background that was not edited out!

For the episode, they also film in the Upper East Side French restaurant Orsay and filmed the fashion show scenes at the Manhattan Municipal Court underpass at Police Plaza.
