My feet are killing me but it was worth it. Friday morning I took the train up to NYC to for a visit with some of my Team Pulpers including Katy and Brit from the UK. Our entire trip centered around seeing Mark Ruffalo (along with Danny Devito and Tony Shalhoub) in “The Price” but of course we had other plans as well. In order to keep this post from getting too long, I’m going to break it down into sections!
Marvel Filming Locations
The first location we checked out was in Central Park. You’ll recognize this from the end of “Avengers” when Thor is taking Loki back to Asgard!
Then throughout the weekend we checked out different “Daredevil” locations including Turkey’s Nest which is Josie’s Bar in the show. It’s basically where Murdock and pals hang out and drink. We stopped in for a few beers and it’s actually a cool little place. Then we checked out the Nelson & Murdock offices, which you’d just walk right past if you didn’t know any better. The last stop on the tour was the Square Diner. You see this in season two featuring Matt and Elektra.
We had a few other places we wanted to hit but just didn’t have the time! Just means we’ll have to go back!
The whole point of this trip was to see the play! I had a nice time and enjoyed the show. There were a few little issues, but the performances were solid. I just feel the story could be updated a bit and the humor at times broke the tension. After the play ended, we headed outside to the stagedoor in hopes of getting some photos and autographs. Success! I was able to get autographs from Mark, Danny and Tony! Plus I got a picture with Mark and Tony. Danny Devito wasn’t doing selfies but you could take photos of him. Honestly, a selfie with him would be pretty impossible.
All the actors were really nice though I’m sure Tony Shalhoub is tired of being told “I loved you on Monk!” Well, tough. Because it’s true!
We did a lot in a short amount of time. We did a little walking tour of Greenwich, checked out the High Line, had dinner at Modern Love (which was FANTASTIC), saw some art, ate all the things, had a few drinks, took a tour of the Woolworth’s Building, saw the Firehouse from Ghostbusters, and spent a lot of time on the Metro. It was a whirlwind but it was amazing. I wouldn’t change anything. It’s always nice to get together with friends, especially when they’re International.
Now I get a bit of a travel break before driving up to Rochester over Memorial Day weekend to visit Karl and Jenna. When I get back from that trip it’s time to go down the ocean hon! Anyone else have any trips planned? Let me know!
