A Train About Nothing

Seinfeld7Everywhere you turn nowadays; it seems that nostalgia is in the air for the 1990s. The MTA may be taking it a step too far though.

Starting on May 12, the 7 train has been transformed inside and out to replicate Monk’s Café Restaurant from “Seinfeld.” The famed location, where the gang of Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer would often meet, is taking over the train in time for the first Subway Series of the year between the New York Mets and Yankees.

The homage is also in line with the 25th anniversary of the show’s debut in 1989.

What does Monk’s Diner have to do with the Subway Series? Absolutely nothing as far as we can tell! And for the “Show About Nothing,” that may just be good enough.
