New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
“The Writers’ Room”
Here at City Center, Your Show of Shows came to life each week. Sid Caesar, Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Neil Simon, Howard Morris, Mel Tolkin, Lucille Kallen, Tony Webster, Joe Stein, Danny Simon, Max Liebman, and Woody Allen made both a classic television series and comedy history. The show’s scripts were created in a legendary and storied room on the sixth floor and if those walls could talk, well, then I guess we wouldn’t need this plaque.
