Butterfield 8 (1960)

Beautiful Gloria Wandrous (Elizabeth Taylor), a New York fashion model engages in an illicit affair with married socialite Weston Liggett. However, Gloria's desire for respectability causes her to reconsider her lifestyle.


The Liggett's Apartment, 1050 5th Avenue and East 86th Street, Manhattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: Although Elizabeth Taylor's character requests that the taxi driver take her to 38 Horatio Street, the actual address is in fact number 15 Gay Street.

Steve Carpenter's Apartment, 15 Gay Street and Waverly Place, Manhattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: The changing face of 5th Avenue. Back in 1960 Elizabeth Taylor's character takes a stroll along 5th Avenue, pausing for a moment to look in the store window. I somehow think it wasn't to look at the latest Toy Story collection. The Disney store now occupies the corner of East 55th Street and 5th Avenue.

5th Avenue and East 55th Street, Manhattan.
