Matthew Perry Fans Honor ‘Friends’ Star With Tribute Outside Chandler Bing’s Apartment

Matthew Perry fans are honoring the late actor with a touching tribute in front of the building that was used as an exterior shot for Chandler Bing’s apartment.

The Little Owl café sits at the base of the building that was used as the façade for the apartment Chandler and Joey Tribbiani shared in NYC on the sitcom Friends. After news of Perry’s death, fans of the comedy series gathered at the corner of Bedford St. and Grove St. in Greenwich Village to honor the actor.

“We are so sorry no one was there for you. You are so loved and will be missed for generations. Thank you for being our friend,” read a sign made by a fan.

Fans took flowers to the location and paid tribute to the star. Another sign read, “We will never understand what Chandler’s job was, but we will know how much joy being in his company brought us.”

The creators of Friends, Marta Kauffman and David Crane, alongside producer Kevin Bright, issued a statement following the loss of Perry.

“We will always cherish the joy, the light, the blinding intelligence he brought to every moment – not just to his work, but in life as well,” the trio said, ending their tribute with a somber take on Friends‘ famous episode titles, “This truly is The One Where Our Hearts Are Broken.”

Perry’s family has also broken their silence telling TMZ they “are heartbroken by the tragic loss of our beloved son and brother. Matthew brought so much joy to the world, both as an actor and a friend. You all meant so much to him and we appreciate the tremendous outpouring of love.”
