In the mid-'50s, usually on a Tuesday after my Reserve Tng let out, I would drive into New York, and park right in front of the Dumont Studios.  Then I'd walk in (no tickets needed) and sat in a folding chair around the perimeter of the Kovacs set.  One night I sat right behind Buster Crabbe.  I serepticiously took photographs one night (no flash, of course).  I don't think any of this would be possible today.
