Hi:

I am a faculty member in the Department of Geography of the University of New Hampshire. I am teaching a course in the spring semester entitled Place and Popular Culture. We will read novels, watch movies and TV shows, and listen to music. We will consider how places are depicted in popular culture and the ability of popular culture to shape people's images of places.

I am looking for suggestions of Seinfeld episodes in which New York figures prominently. I realize New York plays a role in many Seinfeld episodes, but I am looking for suggestions of episodes in which it plays an especially significant role in some way. One such episode that comes to mind is "The Soup Nazi." I'm sure there are others. Please send me your ideas.

Regards,

Blake Gumprecht

Mr. Gumprecht,

I can think of a few episodes that might be helpful:

The Letter Read the script of The Letter Download the full epiosde video of The Letter Discuss The Letter ... In this episode you see Kramer, Elaine and George at a Yankees game and Elaine gets in trouble for wearing an Orioles' cap.

The Puerto Rican Dat Read the script of The Puerto Rican Dat Download the full epiosde video of The Puerto Rican Dat Discuss The Puerto Rican Dat ... takes place outside in the middle of a puerto Rican day parade.

The Betrayal Read the script of The Betrayal Download the full epiosde video of The Betrayal Discuss The Betrayal ... this one takes place in India.

The Movie Read the script of The Movie Download the full epiosde video of The Movie Discuss The Movie ... at the movies.

these are a few I can think of right now, hope it helps.
