Nexus of the Universe

Tidbits from my Travels by William

I’m a huge Seinfeld fan and have seen all of the episodes multiple times.  I have most of the seasons on DVD but never watch them because I always seem to catch the re-runs on T.V.

In one particular Seinfeld episode, Kramer finds himself lost in lower Manhattan.  He calls Jerry from a payphone and when Jerry asks where he is, Kramer looks up at the street signs.  In utter amazement, he realizes he is where 1st Street intersects 1st Avenue—The Nexus of the Universe.

Once, while in lower Manhattan, I found myself at that very spot—the Nexus of the Universe.  I’m sure I’d walked through there on many occasions, but never realized I was passing through The Nexus all those times.

So, if you find yourself at 1st Avenue and 1st Street, think of Kramer, (heck, think of me) and make the most of being at the Nexus.

If you know of any other popular Seinfeld locations you think I should visit, please leave a comment.
