The other day over Cuban food we were polling people in the restaurant to see if anybody could recall the street address in the classic sitcom, I Love Lucy. It’d be impossible for me to eat Cuban food in New York and not think of Ricky Ricardo.
We finally looked it up this week and learned that in that fictional world, the Ricardos and Mertzes live at 623 East 68th Street in Manhattan. That would theoretically be the north side of the street; if you look out their window, you’d be looking south.
Matt just pointed out that 68th Street ends at the 500 block. That puts our friends right in the middle of the East River.
