Seinfeld is a sitcom that aired on NBC from 1989 to 1998 set predominantly in an apartment block on Manhattan's Upper West Side, the show features a host of Jerry Seinfeld's stories with his best friend George Costanza, former girlfriend Elaine Benes, and neighbor across the hall Cosmo Kramer.
Seinfeld Cast

Seinfeld, the "show about nothing," gradually grew into an enormous hit and was the archetypal friends-hanging-out series of the 1990s. Most stories were about life's trivia, waiting in line, forgetting where your car is parked, throwing away someone's prized TV Guide. Seen once in a while were Jerry's parents, Helen and Morty, George's folks, Estelle and Frank (who were as neurotic as he was), and Newman, an overweight mailman who lived in the building.
