'Seinfeld' Fans Can Finally Visit Jerry's Apartment
To celebrate the NBC sitcom streaming on Hulu, New Yorkers will be able to tour a re-creation of the set, and make their own Kramer-like entrance.
Thanks to a pop-up re-creation of the set in New York, Seinfeld fans can finally deliver Kramer's greeting and barge into Jerry's apartment like the eccentric neighbor.
To celebrate Seinfeld's arrival on its streaming service, Hulu is re-creating Jerry's abode in a space in Manhattan (incidentally in the West Village, downtown from Jerry's Upper West Side digs) and opening it to the public for four days later this month.
The space will also feature a Seinfeld memorabilia gallery, with props and scripts, and will give fans the chance to recreate scenes like George Costanza's photo shoot and Kramer's signature entrance. The "Seinfeld: The Apartment" pop-up installation will be open from June 24-28, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day at 451 West 14th Street.
“Seinfeld is one of those rare shows that continues to influence pop culture to this day, so what better way to launch its streaming debut than to celebrate the fans and give them a chance to relive the scenes from some of the most iconic moments in TV history,” Jenny Wall, Hulu's senior vp marketing, said in a statement.
Hulu also announced that it is removing from its vault seven of the best Seinfeld episodes and making them available to its subscribers in the form of a seven-day countdown, starting on June 17 and leading up to the show's official Hulu debut on June 24.
