Scenes From the 'Gilmore Girls' Luke's Diner Pop-Up in New York City

FUSE TV - Scenes From the 'Gilmore Girls' Luke's Diner Pop-Up in New York City

It was a crisp fall day when four Fuse staffers headed out to start our Wednesday morning with coffee, like Lorelei Gilmore did at the start of basically every episode of Gilmore Girls. At 9 a.m., it was sunny and brisk, but instead of maneuvering our way through the friendly streets of Stars Hollow, we sluggishly made our way through the morning rush on 42nd Street in Manhattan. Like Lorelei said, "What I need now is lots and lots of coffee."

When we heard that Netflix was sponsoring 250 Luke's Diner pop-up shops around the country in preparation for the four new Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life mini-movies premiering on Nov. 25, we started a group text and made it happen. There were a dozen locations in New York City alone, so we chose to go to Grand Central Coffee Company, where the line was out onto the street.

On the front of the building hung a Luke's sign—you know, that infamous, oblong, marigold coffee cup, with Luke Danes' first name painted in blocky letters on it. The line, as we noticed, appeared to be mostly women on their way to work.
