    They are coming to your neighborhood.

    It had to happen. On Location Tours, the company that deposits every manner of B&T Carrie Bradshaw wannabe chanting "cupcakes, cupcakes" in front of Magnolia Bakery every Saturday afternoon has started a "Gossip Girl" tour. The West Village breathes a sigh of relief hoping that this may clear out some of the foot traffic in front of the Marc Jacob's tchotchke store down the street (Carrie doppelgänger No. 1 to Carrie doppelgänger No. 2: "Hey, this MJ keychain is only like $17").

    Henri Bendel, however, can now expect to be slammed. The bus will tour the Upper East Side, though it's hard to imagine many of the residents there putting up with gaggles of teenage girls in naughty school-girl outfits loitering in front of their buildings.

    And West Village, you are safe for the moment. At least until "The City" tour starts up, caravaning Whitney Port and Olivia Palermo worshippers to Pastis and leaving them to wander the MPD.
