otsoNY Comments: In a scene previous to this one, Justin Timberlake's character is seen walking along 5th Avenue near to East 51st Street. There is a reflection of the Olympic Tower on the screen of his mobile, and the audience would presume that the building be the one where Mila Kunis's character had taken him on his first night in the city. But no, the actual building is in fact 11 blocks south of this location and 2 blocks east. She had taken him to the roof top of 101 Park Avenue.
