704 Hauser

The next stop on Rick Emerson's video tour of offbeat-yet-iconic New York places: 704 Hauser. Which (I guessed correctly!) was Archie Bunker's house.

(His first stop: what used to be the Copacabana. He's also visited the Apollo.)

Trivia: in the pilot for what became the influential TV show All in the Family, the family wasn't the Bunker family, it was the Justice family. Harlan Ellison saw the pilot back in the early '70s and said Very smart and thoughtful, but it's never going to get on air. I think he didn't mind being wrong about the show's chances.
