MAY 14, 2013 – Hello, internet.
It’s been five years in the making, but Maps About Nothing is now live on the interwebs for your viewing pleasure! Fifteen years to the day of Seinfeld’s swan song, we give you the ultimate stop-by-stop dissection of every single location featured in Seinfeld history! So like an all-yogurt diet, let’s start the insanity!
MAY 16, 2013 – Lord of the manor.
It’s as if WordPress knows me already! It’s got everything I’ve always wanted in a blog host…except for the walking.
MAY 22, 2013 – A few housekeeping items…
MAY 26, 2013 – No touching!
Happy returns to the brilliant sitcom “Arrested Development!” And kudos to the many “Seinfeld” faces of the O.C. (we won’t call it that), whether it be Christine Taylor (Sally Sitwell), John Michael Higgins (Wayne Jarvis)…or Lainie herself, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, as the ambiguously-blind/pregnant attorney Maggie Lizer!
MAY 27, 2013 – It’s a security issue!
To all the brave men and women who wear and have worn the uniform – whether you’re slinging hash for the Fighting 103rd, sleeping tight in your quilted Chambray nightshirt, or have a military career that’s classified, a very happy Memorial Day to you!

JUN. 13, 2013 – Jimmy’s in trouble, Lois!
The latest epic film about the gang’s favorite superhero is in theaters tomorrow – Man Of Steel! While the film may not showcase Clark Kent’s humorous side, have Superman combatting bad BO, feature the villain Bizarro. or have him heading to his Fortress of Solitude just to “get away from it all,” surely it will be a huge hit. You can always trust a man wearing a cape!

Happy anniversary to Jerry’s epic vomit streak, first started on June 29, 1972, and then again on June 29, 1980…until the infamous black & white cookie incident of ’94. If we can’t look to the cookie, where can we look?
JUL. 4, 2013 – Ya’ll come back real –
Happy birthday, America!
JUL. 5, 2013 – You can’t over-die, you can’t over-dry.

JUL. 17, 2013 – Gold Jerry, gold!
It’s been quite the 36 hour span here at Maps About Nothing!

AUG. 26, 2013 – But my feet, my feet are resilient!
Big kudos to the great folks at Scoutmob NY for featuring Maps About Nothing yesterday! A wonderful little article, even with a nice callout to the Himalayan walking shoe – which has inspired an Asia entry to cover off that miss! Thanks for the catch Scoutmob!
SEP. 3, 2013 – Another update for world domination!
Happy back-to-school fellow Newmaniums! We spent all weekend dwelling on continents, in light of our new Asia page that’s just been developed – so, the pages for Tanzania, Uganda and the Congo have been consolidated into a new Africa page, to keep to true facts, make navigation easier, clean up “The Foundation” and “The Label Maker,” yada yada yada…
SEP. 22, 2013 – I saw the sunrise at Liza’s!
A big congrats to all the winners at the 2013 Emmy Awards, but in particular those who have emerged from the Seinfeld universe – whether for smaller characters like Anna Gunn or Bryan Cranston for wins on Breaking Bad, or for our dear “Lainie,” Julia Louis-Dreyfus, with her record-breaking nom and win for Veep! In the words of that famed Tony winner, “it truly has been a Scarsdale Surprise!”
SEP. 29, 2013 – Hand me a schtickel of Blue Sky…
We wish a fond farewell to the brilliant series Breaking Bad, which ended its five season run this evening. Who would have thought that a failed doctor, a cousin-cheating girlfriend and JUST a dentist could make for such great TV? That Walter White, he’s a troublemaker!
OCT. 30, 2013 – Game six!
Congrats to the Boston Red Sox on winning their eighth World Series title! Hopefully this will help erase those painful memories of Mookie, Keith Hernandez and Game Six once and for all!
NOV. 18, 2013 – Just pants, pants, pants!
Thanks to a catch from Carl Reiner’s new book I Remember Me, a missed location highlighting the Algonquin Hotel from “The Phone Message” has now been included.

DEC. 9, 2013 – A trivia for the rest of us!

DEC. 31, 2013 – Is this mouth vacuum thing for real?
A very happy new year to all our amazing visitors from across the globe! Here’s to a happy and exciting 2014, and to that hoping we can all finally breathe underwater and speed-dial from our minds!
JAN. 13, 2014 – There’s Gregory Peck’s bicycle!
Although our dear Julia Louis-Dreyfus was bested by not one, but two Amy’s, at the 2014 Golden Globes, a big congrats for pulling in noms both for TV and film (and for providing one of the biggest laughs of the night)! Also a big night for the former Dr. Whatley, Bryan Cranston, as well as a big Best Supporting TV Actor win for Jon Voight…not the periodontist!
JAN. 22, 2014 – A Kroner comprehension problem
A huge thanks to eagle-eyed Norwegian reader Jon Are Hellevangsdal, for noting that the Oslo airport originally listed in “The Butter Shave” was not opened until a year after the episode aired! Well done sir, apple juice for you!
FEB. 1, 2014 – What the hell is wrong with chicken?
In celebration of this week’s season 3 finale of “Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee,” we here at Maps About Nothing have taken our obsession one step further, proudly presenting Maps About Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Enjoy, and here’s to many more seasons, wheels, comics and java!
FEB. 2, 2014 – You don’t put out a chip?
Congrats to the Seahawks, from “the pesto of cities,” yada yada yada…how about that halftime performance from Jerome and Gorgeous George? A full breakdown of the epic reunion, “The Over-Cheer,” is up! Here’s to hoping this isn’t the last we see of the Seinfeld gang!
FEB. 7, 2014 – Eugene “The Real Deal” O’Neill!
In honor of the coming Olympic Games in Sochi, we bring you a neat new feature here at Maps About Nothing – a new page dedicated to the “Olympic Moments & Facts” series of ads produced in the lead-up to Season 4 for the 1992 Summer Games in Barcelona! See what you can learn (or not really learn) from Jerry, George and Kramer taking on the Olympics!
FEB. 23, 2014 – A new contender has emerged…
Congratulations to all the participants and medallists at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi! Big winners from Norway, Russia, Canada, and about two thousand losers! They trained, they worked out, they exercised, they did everything, they were doing push-ups, sit-ups, they never did anything but exercise and work out for 20 years, they flew half way around the world and aaaaaaaaaah! Photo finish! Silver.
APR. 29, 2014 – This is who we are to the bitter end.
Long time no speak! A very happy sixtieth birthday to “Jerry The Great,” Jerry Seinfeld! While birthdays may just be merely symbolic of how another year has gone by and how little we’ve grown, we are hopeful that Jerry’s better self will emerge, inevitably, irrevocably…happy birthday? No such thing.
MAY 5, 2014 – Sales commission bye-bye-o!
Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone! Throw on your hirachis and celebrate! Machu Picchu!
MAY 14, 2014 – Happy Anniversary!
Hard to believe that it was just one year ago that Maps About Nothing came online, like a Phoenix rising…from Arizona! One year later, and we’ve been featured on numerous outlets, had hundreds of thousands of visitors, and ensured that a new ark of Seinfeld nothingness lives on for eternity! To celebrate this occasion, we present A World Of Nothing, to show just how far the reach of nothing has gone in the past year. So once again, happy anniversary, Merry Christmas, congratulations, it’s a boy, and our deepest sympathies…signed, the whole office.
MAY 22, 2014 – It’s back!
The (not-so) long awaited return of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee is upon us – the news was just announced today that Thursday, June 19 is the start of Season Four! Check back with Maps About Nothing after each episode as we obsessively continue to track Jerry and some huge names in the comedy and entertainment world, as they peruse America in search of java and light conversation!
MAY 23, 2014 – Newsweek?!?
In our effort at Maps About Nothing to always self-improve, we have found another error we have rectified – and now marked off another great state featured on Seinfeld! You can now find updates both in “The Junk Mail” and Nebraska, meaning there are only 5 states (Iowa, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, West Virginia) still unaccounted for! As always, if we’ve missed anything please Contact Us!
MAY 26, 2014 – Maybe I could be a land guy…
Though Seinfeld serves as a shining examples of the worst kind of military personnel (see: Cosmo Kramer, Frank Costanza), we here at Maps About Nothing salute those who wear the uniform this Memorial Day!
JUN. 1, 2014 – Once again…
JUN. 13, 2014 – Don’t whistle on the elevator!
You may have noticed some changes over the last few days, as we’ve now completed adding, for your reading convenience, the nearest subway (and their associated lines, featured in brackets next to each listing) to all NYC-based locations featured on Maps About Nothing! Now you can track down the Seinfeld hotspots easier to relive the history, take a selfie at a famous spot, or go Keith Hernandez-hunting…not that there’s anything wrong with that!
JUN. 14, 2014 – It’s L.A. – nobody leaves!
Congrats to the Los Angeles Kings on winning their second Stanley Cup in three years! Hopefully the good people of L.A. can commit to no five-nineteens during the victory parade, and just be glad you didn’t have to play the DEVILSSS!!!
Also, happy 27th birthday to the infamous “Second Spitter” incident – we knew it couldn’t be you, Keith!
JUN. 15, 2014 – Flaming globes!
Congrats to the San Antonio Spurs on winning their fifth NBA Championship! They may have lost to Cleveland back in the days of Tor Ekman, but they’re back on top now!
JUN. 29, 2014 – Look to the cookie…
Once again, on this day, we commemorate 14 years, down the drain. It’s almost as if he had David Duke and Farrakhan fighting down there…
JUL. 4, 2014 – This is America!
You don’t have to wear anything you don’t want to wear…especially ribbons! Happy birthday USA!
JUL. 5, 2014 – You know why we’re here?
It is truly remarkable to look back upon the fact that “The Seinfeld Chronicles,” aired the day after Independence Day in the hopes of being burned as a one-off, aired 25 years ago today! Who could have predicted the social impact, entertainment value, cultural yada yada yada that Seinfeld could have brought to the world? The big 2-5 is being celebrated the world over, from features in Time, CNN, even Moviefone(!), and is even being getting its own minor-league baseball night from the Brooklyn Cyclones! It’s kismet Jerry, kismet!
JUL. 7, 2014 – This city would eat you alive!
We’re blown away to learn that even a year into this site, and 25 years since the first Seinfeld ever aired, that we’re still being featured by great publications, like the new article on The Atlantic’s CityLab about “The Geographic Legacy of Seinfeld!” One item to note though, author Eric Jaffe – you say, while our site catalogues the locations brilliantly (and thanks for that!), that a full list of locations could be infinite. Well, we say that our list is complete, fully detailed, most definitely not infinite, and if we may say so, somewhat sophisticated!
JUL. 13, 2014 – Go along! Go along!
Congratulations to Germany on defeating Argentina to win the 2014 World Cup! We know the Argentines must have been devastated being dumped by a proverbial “wall” of strong defense, but the Germans can celebrate tonight like it’s Hitler’s last days!
JUL. 17, 2014 – And that’s a wrap…
Just like that, another season of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee has wrapped! Be sure to check out Maps About Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee to catch up the geography minutiae of all Season Four episodes!
SEP. 9, 2014 – Straight from the vault!
Hellooooo! A little bit of weekday reading to get over the summer blues for you – a new addition to Maps About Nothing, “The Bet,” the infamous lost episode from 1991 deemed too controversial to put on the air! Read up on the history and locations on this strange little tidbit of Seinfeld history!
OCT. 3, 2014 – Back again, baby!
New details have emerged on Season Five of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee, which returns on Thursday, November 6, and will feature Jimmy Fallon, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Bill Burr, Ali Wentworth (yes, “Schmoopie“), Fred Armisen and Miranda Sings! Keep checking in with Maps About Nothing after each episode in the fall for updates on where they have all been!
OCT. 29, 2014 – Swinging San Francisco!
Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants on their eighth World Series title victory! The gender-bending Giants are now tied for fourth in all time World Series wins, slowly catching up to the New York Yankees! Big Stein is gettin’ nervous!
DEC. 18, 2014 – And just like that…
Gone again – another season of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee has wrapped, with a two-part finale starring Jimmy Fallon! But you can relive all the fun by remembering Season Five with Maps About Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee!
DEC. 23, 2014 – Happy Festivus!
We’ve made it another year – it’s a Festivus miracle! A happy Festivus to the rest of us!
DEC. 31, 2014 – It’s February!
A very happy new year to you and yours for 2015! And just be glad we here Happy New Year’d you at the right time, not in March!
JAN. 9, 2015 – Sacamano Sr. screwed me!
A big thanks to the folks at Stimulant for featuring our fun little site! But you can try all you want, it’s not that easy to find Bob Sacamano! Sacamano Sr., on the other hand…
FEB. 1, 2015 – Don’t talk to me about hardship!
Congratulations to the New England Patriots, home to Elaine’s “safety school,” on their fourth Super Bowl title! Sure, it may not have been as “eventful” as last year’s game, but was still a great victory nevertheless!
APR. 14, 2015 – It’s that time of year…
When details about the new season of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee emerges! Season Six, which returns on Wednesday, June 3, will feature comedy heavyweights such as Stephen Colbert, Jim Carrey, Bill Maher, Trevor Noah and Steve Harvey…oh, and some unknown actress named Julia Louis-Dreyfus. Wonder if she’s funny?
Either way, very exciting things to come this summer!
MAY 5, 2015 – Cinco de Mayo numero uno…de mayo!
Happy Cinco de Mayo everyone! It’s this new thing Marcellino turned us on to, and he’s one sixty-fourth Mayan!
MAY 14, 2015 – We conceived this 2 years ago!
Happy birthday Maps About Nothing – the site we do own and built with the money we do have!
MAY 21, 2015 – Watch out for those lizards!
Our congratulations to David Letterman on a well-deserved retirement after 33 years of hosting The Late Show! And what better way to go out with a visit from Lainey and “Jimmy” to boot!
MAY 24, 2015 – Anne Meara, 1929-2015
Our condolences go out to the family of Anne Meara, the wife of Seinfeld‘s Jerry Stiller and mother to Ben and Amy Stiller, a comedy legend and regular from The Ed Sullivan Show, Rhoda and Archie Bunker’s Place. As comedy partners with Jerry as the duo “Stiller & Meara,” surely much of the comedy genius that manifested in Frank Costanza in the Seinfeld years was inspired by their 61 years of marriage. We will miss you, Anne.
MAY 25, 2015 – You were in the Army?
A very happy Memorial Day to all those that have put on, and continue to put on, the uniform – even our very own L.D.!
JUN. 14, 2015 – JUNE 14, 1987!
Happy 28th birthday to the infamous Keith Hernandez spitting incident! We will never forgive you, Roger MacDowell!
JUN. 15, 2015 – If things don’t exactly work out…
Congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks on winning their sixth Stanley Cup title, and third in five years! Time for George to get his Blackhawks jacket updated – just needs to ensure Jerry won’t forget it this time!
JUN. 17, 2015 – He’s got nothin’!
Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors on winning their fourth NBA Championship, and first in 40 years! But since there were never any Oakland references, and one small San Francisco reference, in nine seasons of Seinfeld…we got nothin’!
JUN. 23, 2015 – The Gray Lady!
We are thrilled to be included in The New York Times‘ “Food Tour of Seinfeld’s New York,” all in the lead-up to Seinfeld’s debut on Hulu this month! We’ve had some great coverage so far, but to be included in the Times is a whole new level of thrilling!
JUN. 29, 2015 – 35 years of 14 years!
Hard to believe this marks the 35th anniversary of the last vomit of Jerome Seinfeld – June 14, 1980! 35 years of 14 years, down the drain!
JUL. 5, 2015 – That means “from Vinci!”
Happy anniversary to our favourite show, which debuted 26 years ago in the midst of America’s Independence Day hangover! So a very happy birthday to both the show and America, which we would have congratulated yesterday…but we had our watch set to Da Vinci time!
NOV. 2, 2015 – George is gettin’ upset!
Congratulations to the Kansas City Royals on their second World Series title, their first since 1985! Sure, it came at the expense of Jerry Seinfeld’s beloved Mets, who brought us Keith Hernandez, Mr. Wilhelm as head of scouting and the second spitter, but we’re not bitter…
DEC. 6, 2015 – Howard West, 1931-2015
Our condolences go out to the family of Howard West, who with partner George Shapiro, managed Jerry Seinfeld to his massive success with the show Seinfeld. Without the guidance of Shapiro West & Associates, one wonders what the television comedy landscape would be like today without the legacy of Seinfeld to break so many rules and set the bar so high. We will miss you, Howard.
DEC. 21, 2015 – Festivus Comes Early!
It’s a Festivus Miracle 48 hours ahead of schedule! The season announcement for Season 7 of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee came today, with news that Jerry will be joined by Will Ferrell, Steve Martin, Kathleen Madigan, Sebastian Maniscalco, Garry Shandling, and even President Barack Obama, starting on Wednesday, December 23!
DEC. 31, 2015 – To the Newmanium!
…or something like that. Anyways, Happy New Year to you and yours, on this, the Eve of the New Year, following the Eve of New Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee!
FEB. 7, 2016 – Sheriff.
Our congratulations to the Denver Broncos on winning their third Super Bowl tonight! While there may have just been a tiny reference to Denver in nine seasons of the show, they did just defeat a quarterback who likens himself to Superman in swinging San Francisco, so hey, that’s something, right?
MAY 5, 2016 – …Bicyclist.
A very happy Cinco De Mayo once again to all of our readers! Slap on your best urban sombrero and hit the town – hopefully all on Peterman’s peso!
MAY 14, 2016 – No such thing.
Happy birthday to Maps About Nothing, which today escapes the terrible twos and enters the terrible threes!
MAY 30, 2016 – The best medicine!
JUN. 13, 2016 – Forget this game!
Our congratulations to the Pittsburgh Penguins on winning their fourth Stanley Cup – no mentions of the city on the show, but at least these Penguins didn’t have to wear cotton uniforms!
JUN. 14, 2016 – June 14!
You know what that means!
JUN. 19, 2016 – She’s boring, I’m boring, we’re both boring.
Our congratulations to the Cleveland Cavaliers on winning their first ever NBA Championship! While it was certainly a thriller for a title to return to The Forest City, one such fan didn’t seem to think so:
JUN. 29, 2016 – Can you believe it?!?
Today we return to commemorate the epic vomit streak of one Jerome Seinfeld, ended and simultaneously started both in 1972 and 1980. That damn black and white cookie…
JUL. 4, 2016 – You gotta mulch. You’ve got to!
Happy birthday to all of the Anytowns of the USA – enjoy your barbecues, fireworks, and of course the azaleas!
JUL. 5, 2016 – Claire?
Today we commemorate the 27th anniversary of the airing of “The Seinfeld Chronicles,” which started a TV revolution about nothing, and marked the first and last appearance of the mighty Claire. Today we remember her, and what may have been (or not)…
AUG. 21, 2016 – Now, to now!
Our congratulations to all the athletes and winners at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, including the big three winners, Team USA, the United Kingdom and China. Not to mention Olympic legend Michael Phelps, the second biggest name to ever come out of Towson – behind one Elaine Marie Benes, of course!
