With a characteristically restrained series finale last night, the AMC hit drama Mad Men came to a close after over eight years of lies, adultery, intrigue and many, many advertisements. Though the series was filmed in Los Angeles, the period piece (set in New York in the 1960s) managed to incorporate many real-life NYC locales over its many episodes. Check out some of the restaurants, bars and hotels featured in the show that you can still visit, below. (Warning: spoilers.)
