Picture it: Manhattan, 2017. A crisp Saturday morning. Every table in Rue La Rue Cafe — a new restaurant in Washington Heights dedicated to Rue McClanahan and her hit television series, “The Golden Girls” — was occupied, including one in a replica of the kitchen set from the show. The pumps Ms. McClanahan (Blanche) wore in the pilot episode are displayed in a glass case. Mannequins draped in her gowns surrounded a pianist and guitarist playing mellow jazz on a corner stage. Behind them, on a pedestal, was her 1987 Emmy for lead actress.

When the musicians took a break, a mounted television was turned up so customers could watch episodes that play steadily. Conversation happily quieted as Bea Arthur (Dorothy) and Hal Linden were heard saying good night after a sixth-season date.

“This is a museum!” said a woman in line to order.

It was love at first sight.

I saw her on 175th and Broadway, right across the street from the United Palace, looking all gorgeous.

She just stood out. A glance was all it took. In fact, she made it impossible to look away. It wasn’t only me either. Everyone that saw her, male or female, was transfixed. For a split second the raucous cacophony that is ever present in Washington Heights lessened just a little. Time seemed to stand still, traffic came to a halt.
