Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: The number of the flats near the start of the first series was 4 and 5. After a few shows they changed to 19 and 20. [The producers realised that the numbers 4 and 5 were for apartments on the lower floors and had shown Monica's apartment to be much higher up so they changed the numbers - it's still a mistake but there's the reason.]

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is talking with Phoebe about Paolo,. she unrolls some kitchen paper and uses it as a tissue. Initially she's holding two torn halves attached to the roll, then when saying "He's a pig" it goes to a whole sheet not attached to any others, then when she sits down it's a whole sheet attached to the roll again. Plus when Phoebe sits too, in some shots the paper is on the table, in others it's not.

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Rachel takes the cat to apartment number 8 and Mr. Heckles opens the door. However, in this episode, the girls' apartment is labeled number 5 which means that number 8 is above them. In later episodes, Mr. Heckles always says that the noisy girls upstairs are keeping him from doing things. [It makes a bit more sense later on in the series when Monica and Rachel's appartment changes to number 20, which is when Mr Heckles starts to complain about the noise (although in the flash back episode when Phoebe is still living with Monica it seems apparent that they actually know Mr Heckles, which Phoebe shows no sign of when she and Rachel are looking for the owner of the cat).]
