// THE IMAGINATION THIEF — Literary Fiction with a touch of Magical Realism and a dusting of Horror.

(16) New York News

Rohan Quine - New York - New York News(16) New York News. In a girl’s bath, in the episode “Broadway Joe” of the TV show New York News. The closing head-tilt required lots of emotional “tilt work” beforehand, of course.

This particularly flimsy and insubstantial snippet of silliness was shot upstairs in the Little Flatiron Building, in the Meatpacking District (the building that comes to a point on the south side of 14th Street between 9th Avenue and Hudson Street), back when that corner still constituted the eastern edge of trans hooker central. A few floors underneath us was an after-hours joint called J’s Hangout, which had a shockingly sleazy basement.

With its memorably pointy nose of a footprint and its then-decadent nocturnal location, the Little Flatiron Building has been used in quite a few movies, as a malleable evoker of a kind of essence of Downtown: Ed Harris lets himself fall out of one of its upper windows, in the middle of a chat with Meryl Streep in The Hours; and it was Glenn Close’s apartment building in Fatal Attraction.
