Midge goes for a walk in Greenwich Village, and we see her next to the fountain and next to the Washington Square Park Arch. She stops by a newsstand and sees news about two luxury hotels— but the news she’s upset about is that she’s been replaced by another performer and that Baldwin already knew that when she went to the airport. It was a deliberate humiliation.

We also see Susie run around the fountain to the newsstand as well to use the payphone. She pays the man using it so she can get on the phone to call Tess to inquire about the insurance check.
