The Corner Bistro is still standing. In 1973-1974, you could find Shane Stevens there at night, tending bar. It still looks rough, but my understanding from the person I spoke with, is that back then it was even rougher.
I wonder if he's been back? The Bistro's claim to fame is that it's supposed to have the best hamburgers in New York City.
Cobra Kai is coming to Netflix! The first two seasons will be arriving later this year, then joined shortly by the unaired third season. This sequel to the original Karate Kid movies is one of my favorite streaming shows period. Despite scoring some big view numbers for YouTube, I don't think it ever really found the audience it deserves. Now that YouTube is out of the original scripted content business and this will be on Netflix, hopefully it find even wider acclaim because it's just that good.
