Here's one for burger enthusiasts and fans of New York restaurant history: the newest installment of the This Must Be The Place series focuses on Prime Burger, the classic, 72-year-old burger joint across the street from St. Patrick's Cathedral in Midtown. This beautiful, breezy seven minute film features interviews with several of the restaurant's employees (many have been working there for 20 years or more), some great burger footage, and a sweet soul soundtrack. Take a break and check it out:
