New York : the must-see places of Seinfled

This mythical series, released in 1989, tells the story of Jerry Seinfled, a New York stand-up artist, of his shows, but also of his friends, of these little quirks, but also his passions. A walk in the big apple is needed to follow the traces of this legendary sitcom hero.

Original Soup Man

The episode “Soup Nazi” is one of the most memorable and is now part of American pop culture.  The original Soup Kitchen has become a chain of the Original Soup Man. Still running the show is Ali “Al” Yeganeh who was the inspiration behind the “Soup Nazi” character.  He got this nickname due to his rather strict and not so conventional way to treat the customers. You really have to go here!

Monk's Café

Renamed Monk’s Café, Tom’s Diner is often seen in Seinfeld.  Still today, photos of actors decorate the walls while fans from all over the world keep coming to sit at the same tables as the characters.  The establishment plays right along, with numerous references to the series.

Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment

The façade will mean nothing to you as what you see on screen is located in Los Angeles.  However, the lead role’s address given in the series is in fact the real apartment of Jerry Seinfeld when as a little known comedian he used to live in New York.  The other characters also live in the area. Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) at 321 W 90th St and George Costanza (Jason Alexander) at 129 W 81st St.

H&H Bagels

In the second-to-last episode of the series, Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards) gets a call informing him that the 12-year long strike at his employer H&H Bagels is over.  The original store was located at 2239 Broadway but closed in 2012.

Pete's tavern

Kramer, loosely disguised, follows Barry into this historical bar founded in 1864.
