Wallet Card at the most infamous subway grate in Yankees history

It was at this Lexington Avenue subway grate in 1954 that Marilyn Monroe filmed her famous skirt-blowing scene for the movie Seven Year Itch. The filming drew a huge crowd who watched Monroe act out the scene with several takes (none of which were used in the film - they ended up refilming in a Hollywood studio). Monroe's husband, former Yankees legend Joe DiMaggio, was at the filming, and, infuriated by his wife's exhibitionism, filed for divorce shortly after.
