It’s easy for the Friends to always ”be there” for one another — they don’t really get around much. If not lounging at Central Perk, they can be found at Monica’s purple-toned pad or Joey’s bare-bones digs — located at the intersection of Greenwich Village’s Grove and Bedford Streets, if you believe the setup shot. That’s not to say they’re total homebodies. Over the years, the sextet have left their mark on some far-flung places.
