is it heartless of me to say…

…that I’m not sorry the New York City backlot at Universal Studios was among the assets destroyed in the big fire there this weekend?

The usual caveats: I’m glad no one was seriously hurt, it’s a good thing only duplicate video and film was lost, it’s a shame a lot of movie history has been destroyed, etc. But this:

could only look like New York City to someone who’s only ever seen it in the movies… when it was replaced by a backlot.
