The circuit would focus on everything from Greenpoint’s coffee outpost Café Grumpy, where Lena Dunham’s character Hannah Horvath once slung lattes, to a Bushwick warehouse where Shoshanna (Zosia Mamet) accidentally smokes crack.
But don’t expect a glitzy romp through the West Village to Sex and the City staple Magnolia Bakery, or past the Condé Nast building where Carrie Bradshaw once penned articles for Vogue, on a “Girls” tour — much of the hit show takes place far away from the bright lights of the big city.
The locations aren’t exactly glamorous,” said Blau of Greenpoint, Prospect Heights and Bushwick, where Shoshanna and Ray hit a warehouse party in season one of the hit HBO comedy. “But,” she adds, “they’re authentic.”
An HBO spokewoman declined to comment, saying the tour is in its infancy and no details are set in stone. But an HBO insider said the “Girls” discussions is in the works.
Though the final route has yet to be formally mapped out, Blau said there will be several definite stops, including Hannah and Marnie’s apartment on India St. in Greenpoint and Prospect Heights watering hole “Weather Up,” a bar in “grown-up Brooklyn” that Hannah mentions she likes.
