When I went to NY in the 90s with my playwriting class, a few of us went for a long ass walk through the city. The guys with me had no idea why I suddenly got stoked to see the Chelsea.
How many figured you were a Leonard Cohen fan? I say that given you were hanging around with writers.
One was a stoner hippie and the other didn’t seem to listen to music at all.
Good times for you! :hmm:
It is a really cool old building. I think the boarding house thing is finally over. I’m not sure what the status is now.
It is on my list of things to do I am determined to get into Sid’s old room although I understand it has since been demoted and changed quite a bit ( the building).

Wander around the West Village and wash into the Ear Inn. It’s a great lunch bar.

Blow off Times Square and grab a drink at the Grand Central Oyster Bar instead. You get to check out the station and eat some oysters.

It’s damn good. They do oyster and clam pan roasts finished with a fantastic saffron cream. They also make a proper cocktail. It’s in the basement of grand central which seem to be a thousand miles from the city above.

This is excellent advice. Every big town has their surprisingly alright tourist trap and their actual tourist trap. Times Square is NYC's godawful, miserable tourist trap.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

… Robert Clary—LeBeau on Hogan's Heroes—is still alive at 92 years old.

That show is really bizarre to consider, treating things like the SS so light-heartedly. Yet, there were five or six Jewish actors in the cast, including Clary, who was a camp survivor. Most played German soldiers, so it would seem like it was a form of therapy, but, yeesh, it can be jarring to watch the flippant tone.

Yeah. It’s...so weird. I knew it was weird even seeing reruns as a kid, but it only gets weirder as time goes on.

It's like if 3 years from now CBS does a sitcom about 9/11.

Hear me out—Hogan's Heroes but set in Guantanamo Bay. We'll have to finesse things a bit to make the American jailers the heroes and the prisoners the boobish villains, but whatever, details details. Maybe get Rob Schneider to star and then talk Kevin Spacey into making it his comeback vehicle. It can replace Big Bang Theory on the schedule.
Endut! Hoch Hech!
