The legacy of the immortalized romantic comedy lives on – not only in countless fond memories, but also in historical Manhattan architecture.

Based on the novella by Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s will always be remembered for Audrey Hepburn’s outstanding portrayal of the charming gold digger, Holly Golightly, and the powerful performance of George Peppard as Paul Varjak, the struggling writer who is enchanted by the highly attractive minx.

Here are a few of the locations filmed during movie that have stood the test of time:

1) 167 East 71st Street, Manhattan

Would Holly Golightly recognize her Manhattan brownstone today?
