    Don Sahlin has a bench in London I know, Jim had it made himself when Don past away. Now Jim's name is also inscribed on the same bench.

    No, there is nothing Muppet at the old townhouse anymore. It's no longer owned by the Henson company. Everything has been moved out and relocated to their other offices from what I've heard.

    And as far as the benches in NYC, there's one for Jim and Jon Stone in Central Park.

    Yeah, I knew Henson didn't own it. That's too bad... :sympathy:

    Yeah, I heard about this one. Some people think it is funny, but nobody should walk around in a costume of a person that little kids idolize, and go on a rant using profanity. It is just wrong on so many levels.

    i really hate that people do that now. it's disturbing, unnecessary, and heart breaking to Muppet fans like us. when i saw a video of a guy dressed up as Elmo making racist comments i was crying. CRYING! and its very hard for me to cry!!

    I was just walking through the Times Square area yesterday on my lunchbreak, and they had Elmo and a 4th of July Mickey and Minnie Mouse walking around. They're just out to make money for the most part. They carry little sacks with them and charge $10 a picture but like Heralde said, try to steer clear of them anyway. Some of them are a little looney. Most of the promotional stuff in Times Square is a rip off.

    About a year ago too there was a shooting involving these guys who go around and sell CDs and ask tourists who don't know any better their name and pretend they're autographing it for you. One guy who didn't, the guy selling the CD turned a gun on him.

    Welcome to NYC! Ehh like most cities just use common sense, keep aware of what's and WHO is around you and you should be fine. I wouldnt go walking down any dark alleys or anything though. Lol!
