You've Got Mail (1998)

Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) awakens to the latest comments by her newspaper columnist boyfriend Frank Navasky (Greg Kinnear) on how computers are ushering in the fall of civilization, accomplishing strange tasks like instant messages and the ability to convert PDF to excel. Once she has made quite sure Frank has left for the day, Kathleen starts her computer and goes on-line. She doesn’t want Frank to know that she’s exchanging e-mails with a man she’s never met, Joe Fox (Tom Hanks). He is also keeping this a secret from his own girlfriend, publishing executive Patricia Eden (Parker Posey).

otsoNY Comments: Although the sign clearly states the addresss to be 152 Riverside Drive, it is in fact the side entrance for 210 Riverside Drive along West 93rd Street.

otsoNY Comments: The children's book store scenes in the film were actually filmed at Maya Shaper's Cheese and Antique shop on 103 West 69th Street. The film makers wanted to use the antique shop because it had the quaint, homey feel they were going for. They sent the owner of the antique shop on vacation for a few weeks and while she was gone they turned the store into a children's bookstore. After filming was finished, they put everything back the way they had left it and it became an antique store once again.

otsoNY Comments: At the time of filming the shop was actually Maya Schaper's Cheese and Antiques Shop. After it closed, it briefly became Cafe Sonatina. Now though, it is a laundromat called La Mode Cleaners.

Donations

Thank you for visiting otsoNY, a free service since 2009. We have lots of ideas to help increase the awareness of the website as well as development new features such a Virtual Tour Guide, a Film Location App for your mobile and a otsoNY Hardback Book, but none of this is possible without financial backing. Our overhead costs such as hosting, server space and support maintenance have also increased over the years and otsoNY is now at risk of shutting down without financial help. Any donations are much appreciated to keep otsoNY online.
