Modern-Day Marley...

You'll remember that Ebeneezer Scrooge was too cheap to replace the 'Scrooge and Marley' sign even though Marley had been 'dead as a doornail' for seven years... My friend Jason Young is alive and well, but hasn't lived in this here apartment building since the mid-1990s. Only his name remains...

When Jason moved in, he moved promptly to have his name placed near the doorbell. His successors have not pursued this recognition with the same zeal... Note that he lived in Apartment 2-E, just like Patricia Neil's character in 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'

Extra bonus: The original Breakfast At Tiffany's trailer... I saw this film often on TV in the 70s, never dreaming New York would shimmer again. Note that this trailer shows you some plot without at all showing you the whole film...
