New York City's Most Iconic Fictional BFFs

Finding a best friend in New York City is famously as elusive as finding a romantic partner. We blame pop culture for setting the bar so impossibly high.

The girls from Sex and the City had us wishing we were high-heeling it into clubs on a regular basis, linked arm in arm with no plans to let go. Broad City's high-larious duo taught us why it's okay to be a little bit of a hot mess in your 20s. And way before SoulCycle, Andie Anderson and her Composure co-workers teamed up to show us why hate-loving fitness can be the ultimate bonding activity.

While the fictional ladies ahead might be as different as you can possibly imagine, they all know the most important key to surviving a city like New York: All you really need to get by is a best friend (or two, or three) in tow.
