otsoNY Comments: When David arrives at Rafi's apartment building, he talks briefly to the doorman. Notice the address on the doorman's hat and waste coat. It says "Three, Fifth Avenue". But in fact, the apartment building is nowhere near 5th Avenue, but instead on Prince Street btw Lafayette Street and Mulberry Street.

Marquee Nightclub

On 10th Avenue btw 26th and 27th street is the ultra-lounge known as Marquee. People flock to Marquee because it is the perfect cross btw an intimate and seductive lounge and a high energy, pumped up nightclub. With design similarities to a typical classic gentleman’s club, Marquee is both sophisticated and lavish all on its own.

According to the New York Times, Marquee is one of the top celebrity and millionaire party spots in the New York club scene. Not only that, but it seems that Marquee continues to get more popular with age. The club can easily accommodate 600 people and the main charm of the place lays in the fact that you have three distinct areas to choose from. If you head up to the second floor lounge from the main level you will find your own dance floor and top of the line sound system. You can have your own party with all new people as you watch something different going on with the people down below.
