Girls, the HBO comedy that acts like a DVD commentary about the lives of 20-somethings, now has a map of its shooting locations.

The Google Map pins the filming spots where Lena Dunham and the ladies kvetch about how hard their lives are. It’s created by The Guardian and WNYC Radio (which is most likely the girls’ favorite radio station, because they’re progressive like that).

Surprisingly, there are only four pins in Brooklyn, where the girls live and experience gritty dive bars. Marnie and Hannah’s apartment is in Greenpoint on India St., and Adam’s well-organized living quarters is in Prospect Heights.

Other pins include Shoshanna’s and Jessa’s apartment (near Little Italy), Marnie’s gallery off of Delancey St, and Tom and Jerry’s Bar, where Jessa drinks down a White Russian before her planned abortion. That is totally a #mistakesGIRLSmake.

What’s missing is Ray’s coffee shop, Cafe Grumpy. A quick search revealed that it’s alsowait for itin Greenpoint on Meserole Ave.

I’ll be busy plotting my star map if anyone needs me.
