since I am new to the forum I'll ask if anyone noticed anyways....

On "Space Pilot 3000" there is a shot in old New York (With the Empire state building's top crashed... atleast I think its the Empire state building) Fry says "It's my old neighbourhood" (atleast I think thats how you spell neighbourhood).

Anyways, on "Luck of the Fryish" on the EXACT same picture which they probably just took out of the library of the same episode he says "We could be anywhere!" or something like that....

Did anyone notice?

Fry is an idiot. I can't really help you otherwise.

Uhm.. yup. That brain thing might make him the most important person in the universe, but it obviously didn't make him any smarter.

Yeah, I thought about it for another reason.  Fry's parents live in a house with a yard.  That can't possibly be in Manhattan where the Empire State building.  So how can that be his old neighborhood?  That house looks like it is in Queens.

Either Alliteration is right, or Fry simply considers all of Old New York to be his old neighborhood.  Possibly both.

Or simply the writers of Futurama didn't pay enough attention?

When Bender starts up the B-train, he says it's headed for Brooklyn. There's your answer.

Sidenote: it wasn't the Empire State Building we saw in SP3K, it was the Chrysler Building.

The Empire State was seen in AOI I, where it impales giant Bender.

The NNY's version of the empire state building is seen in the deleted scenes of 'Space Pilot 3000' on the dvd extras. It's alot smaller, and its just the top half because its actually emerging from old new york. They scrapped it in the end and went for the alternative top part ruin down under in old new york.

Aren't the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building the same thing? I thought those were just two different names for that tower.

This reminds me of something that was said in one of the commentaries...

Who said you were, PJF?
I'm awfully surprised that Fry is too stupid to navigate his way downtown. Hey, the first time I traveled alone in NY I only got lost twice trying to find the Express 6. The B, F, and (I believe) the A all cross through Brookyn.

He is our Fry after all.  If he could find Brooklyn easily would he really be Fry?

No, no. Someone called Fry, the TV character, an idiot earlier, I'm assuming "PJF" stands for Phillip J. Fry, and he found it offensive for an unkown reason. WHY he found offense in it is beyond me.

If you view the animatic, there is a scene that was never fully animated in which Fry points out his old manhattan appartment (the whole building is nothing but a pipe with bathtub hanging off it). He then considers that the Owls have probably eaten his Pott Porri.

You will also notice that in "Jurassic Bark" He doesnt live at home anymore, as his parents call his house and get his answering machine.

So its quite possible that manhattan was his old neighbourhood, and his parents house was his even earlier neighbourhood!

If it helps at all-

Fry's parents' house is located near the Newkirk Avenue stop (which is now a stop of the Q train, and I think the D as well) in Brooklyn. However, Fry's actual current residence in "Space Pilot 3000" is probably located in Manhattan.....he works in Manhattan and spots Michelle driving by in the taxi and she says that she "left his stuff out on the sidewalk." He's got to live somewhere nearby.....it wouldn't make too much sense to commute all the way into the city for a pizza delivery job.  big grin He also seems to imply while walking through Old New York that it's his area (like Grim said above.)

Just my two cents.

You are right Grim that is probably where Fry's and Michelle's Apartment is but the point still stands about he is clues on how to get to Brooklyn from Manhattan.
