Video of the Day: Old-School Burger Joint Is Home Sweet Home


Ben Wu and David Usui’s This Must Be the Place ongoing short film series explores the idea of home. For a group of hardworking, dedicated folks in midtown Manhattan, home is the Prime Burger Restaurant. Beautifully shot, the video shares the thoughts and histories of various employees and their french fry-filled abode — including one gentleman who has worked at the restaurant for 59 (freaking) years. The burger joint opened in 1938 and hasn’t been renovated since the ’60s, so the décor is just as amazing as you’re imagining right now. Click through to watch the seven minute, slice of life video.
