Another day without Tony Danza Live....

Tony Danza lives across the street from the ABC Studios at 68th Street where he taped his show. Several months ago I read on that a reader who waits at the bus stop nearby saw Tony Danza do an interesting habitual routine every morning when he left his apartment to go to work. Over the past few months, or whenever I could drag my butt out of bed I would try and catch Mr. Danza doing this challenging activity precisely between 8:03AM and 8:06AM as the tip informed. He never failed me as I was able to observe him doing this "normally done in private event" at least 3 times, but missed a few times as I was a tad late and he was already crossing the street towards work. It took awhile to get a decent photo because of the awe inspiring repetition, the fear of him punching me out or the shock that he had the gonads to do such a egotiscally event on a crowded morning sidewalk, but eventually I got a few shots that told the story. The first time I went to see him do his regenment, I missed the actual event because of the cars and trucks that blocked my view. The Gawker Reader also mentioned that as part of his routine he talked to this women before he crossed the street; if her bus hadn't come yet.

The next time I went I thought it would be better to witnessed it from the same side of the street that he was on. Some guys wear the same socks on game day, Tony Danza does pull ups before work. That's right, he hangs there for a minute, then does three, not four, three pull ups. After he was done he crossed the street to go to work.

I always found it funny that as I walked by the waiting crowd a 1/2 a block away there would be 100 exciting Danza fans waiting in line to get into the show and see TONEEEEEE DANZAAAAA. I often wanted to tell them as I walked by on my way to work or to even tell you who read my blog, about the Tony Danza Show goings on at 8:06AM at 66th & Columbus, but I know what a crowd that would draw and didn't want to compete for that perfect Danza shot with my camera.

Once about a month ago, I did tell my friend Simon and Jason about it, they went to see the show. He did it, and then they asked for a photo. He declined. Thankfully a month before Simon and Jason went to see the Tony Danza Show on 66th and Columbus, I had asked for a photo and he complied. He wasn't happy about it, but he did it. He must have realized I had just seen the Tony Danza Show live and uncensored on Columbus Ave, and wondered if I had read about it on, as he stared off into space and pondered these questions.

So long Tony and thanks for the memories....
