Scene form the TV series showing my (former) apartment building at First Avenue. Note how the street sign mentions West End Ave.

I have been back in NL for a long time now. Unfortunately I am still "home" sick to New York City, and I also dearly miss my nice apartment building Post Toscana.

It is remarkable how often per day I am reminded of New York. It is simply not possible to live a day without seeing some reference to the Big Apple. A topic on the news, a picture on a wall, some person with an I love NY T-shirt, a TV series that is situated in Manhattan, a concert from Carnegie Hall, a travel show, name it and you see it, and really, many times per day.

I am getting used to those views. But tonight I had a very weird experience watching an episode of the TV Series Person of Interest. In the episode the good guy is sent to catch the villain. He is sent to 89th Street, my former home street, and West End Avenue.

Since West End Avenue is located at the very other side of Manhattan I did not pay to much attention until I see a full screen shot of "my" Post Toscana. The series had conveniently turned First Avenue into 11th (West End) Avenue.

The story continued in The Mat, the laundry opposite Post Toscana. Where the villain was beaten up by the hero, giving a nice view on the fruit stand where I bought fruit so many times.

I miss New York!

More pictures below. And compare the first picture to this one. Deze fake-tekst heb ik toegevoegd om net iets meer regels te genereren zodat deze rare website toestaat dat de bijgesloten foto ook vertoond wordt. Deze fake-tekst heb ik toe
