Despite being famously set in New York, the exterior shot of Jerry’s apartment is actually located in Los Angeles, which is where the majority of the series was taped as well.

What can be seen in New York is the famous “Monk’s Cafe,” where Jerry and the gang were regulars throughout the series. The restaurant is actually known as Tom’s Restaurant and can be found in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Manhattan. The show only used the restaurant for exterior shots. The interior of Tom’s bears no resemblance to the Monk’s restaurant set from the show, although it does feature some Seinfeld photos along the walls.
