AM New York Pays Tribute to CBS Sitcom’s ‘Most NYC Moments’

HIMYM_JasonSegelWith the final hour of How I Met Your Mother fast approaching, do yourself a favor and peruse AM New York news editor Caroline Linton‘s wonderfully angled look-back. She runs down what have been, in her opinion over the course of nine seasons, the program’s “most NYC moments.”

Highlighted episodes encompass Woody Allen, public transit, Regis Philbin and the dangerous prism of late night:

How I Met Your Mother taught us an important lesson way back in Season One: Nothing good happens after 2 a.m. In the episode with that title, Robin drunkenly calls (kids, back in 2006, before there was Tinder, single people made their drunken mistakes via phone) Ted to come over at 2 a.m.

He says yes, despite his mother’s warning to just go to bed at 2 a.m. And, thus, he teaches us an important lesson: NYC might seem like an exciting place where anything can happen at any time at night, but really, nothing good happens after 2 a.m.

Very geo-appropriately, Linton’s piece ends with a blurb about “Farhampton,” the show’s fond framing of the end of the LIRR. Read the rest of her NYC-ness list here.
