There are all types of tourism out there, but TV tourism is a special one of the bunch, allowing die-hard fans of a particular show to stand on the same grounds where their favorite characters and actors had often frequented.
For fans of the inimitable, classic comedy series Seinfeld, the following spots across New York City are absolutely essential for a pilgrimage in the Big Apple:
Monk’s Coffee Shop
Now called Tom’s Restaurant; 2280 Broadway at 112th Street.
George’s former place of work has by now been upgraded and completely redone from its Seinfeld days, but it’s still an essential landmark for fans of Seinfeld, baseball, and New York City at large; the Bronx.
An incredible bagel spot where Kramer had “worked,” though it had been on strike for 12 long years; 2239 Broadway between West 79th and 80th Streets.
Al’s Soup Kitchen
Yes, soup for you!; 8th Avenue at W 55th Street.
