#583. Line was longer than the Soup Nazi's...
From Wednesday's NY Post: Iconic items from the set of “Seinfeld” — as well as a re-creation of Jerry Seinfeld’s Upper West Side pad from the show — are going on display to the public starting Wednesday to celebrate all episodes of the series launching on Hulu.
Housed at Milk Studios on West 14th Street, “Seinfeld: The Apartment” is modeled after the NBC comedy’s Season 8 set and includes specific details, from the cereal boxes on the shelf to the bike hanging on the wall and Jerry’s ’90s-era computer in the corner.
Promotions agency the Magnetic Collaborative built the 3,500-square-foot pop-up installation in six weeks, constructing the apartment replica based on episode screen grabs, photos from the show’s set designer and consulting with Seinfeld’s reps. (None of the “Seinfeld” cast members is involved with the exhibit.) Guests will even be able to touch and interact with the re-created set — including making their own Kramer-style entrances into the apartment.
It was a 4 hour wait today, so a picture outside had to suffice.
