The show that took us all by storm and brings us back in time, feeling nostalgia is coming to Brooklyn. The Amazon show allows us to go back in time to a place where our city seemed easier, friendlier and more manageable. While that is likely glamourized, we still enjoy the New York references, outfits from the 50s and subtle remarks that remind us of the ‘good old days’ or at least the way our parents explained it. In our constant search and craving for nostalgia, we were thrilled to hear that the show is coming to life again. Remember when Carnegie Deli re-opened? Well, get ready for the Catskills!
This weekend jump into that DeLorean parked in your driveway and head back to the 1950s. Or, take a subway to Brooklyn to watch a free screening of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel in Brooklyn’s historic Green-Wood Cemetery. Yes, it’s a graveyard but nothing like you’ve experienced before. As you know from our experience, there is a romance and safeness surrounding you in one of the most spectacular places our city has to offer. Green-Wood is 478 spectacular acres of hills, valleys, glacial ponds and paths, throughout which exists one of the largest outdoor collections of 19th- and 20th-century statuary and mausoleums. Four seasons of beauty from century-and-a-half-old trees offer a peaceful oasis to visitors, as well as its 560,000 permanent residents, including Leonard Bernstein, Boss Tweed, Charles Ebbets, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Horace Greeley, Civil War generals, baseball legends, politicians, artists, entertainers and inventors. It’s kind of the place to be for the deceased. Don’t be scared.
Use it as a way to visit the Catskills in the 1950s for an evening to remember with your favorite cast. Rooftop films are throwing a party to celebrate Amazon’s The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, complete with 1950s era eats, drinks, live music, games and a even a fireworks show (just like in the episode). And that’s just the peripheral attractions, the main event is a screening of the episode “We’re Going to the Catskills!” from the Emmy-winning series. Did we mention that the whole event is free? Marvelous.
