Astoria, Queens, New York City

Astoria, Queens; many of cinema history’s celebrated movies and tv shows were filmed here and as such, it is the ideal setting for Scotch and Cookies.

Situated a mere 15 minutes from midtown Manhattan, where Far From Finished Game Studios HQ is located, the middle-class neighborhood provides a relatively quiet place of residence for both John ‘Cookie’ Dutch and Eugene ‘Scotch’ Essig.¬† Though the only reason that they could live in the more quiet and suburbian 39th street, is because John invested a significant sum of the money he won in a mobster pokergame into the living arrangements of both him and Eugene’s family.

This is our favorite band Spock’s Beard (in classic line-up, you guys rock!) who originally released the song ’39th Street Blues (I’m Sick)’ in 2004. It is a song about a prostitute going nuts near East 39th street which connects to Bryant Park, where – ironically – Far From Finished HQ are located.
