New York Film Locations

 





House of D (2004)

On their son Odell's 13the birthday, graphic artist Tom Warszaw (David Duchovny) finally confesses to his wife why he fled Greenwich Village, NYC at that age to Paris. As a schoolboy, naturally sensitive, considerate Tommy was best buddy with 'adult' half-wit Pappass, father Duncan's Catholic school's assistant janitor. Smothered by his dependent mother, a dumb orderly, Tommy got 'parental advice' from a women's prison inmate. Together with Pappas, he saves up tips from their butchery delivery rounds. One night, Pappas steals the bike they were saving for. Tommy tries to take the blame, but ends up expelled as if the instigator. Even more tragic consequences follow.


Cinema Village, 22 East 12th Street and 5th Avenue, Manhattan.
  Build in 1963 in the shell of a turn of the century fire station, Cinema Village is the oldest continuously operated cinema in Greenwich Village and one of the oldest continuously operated art cinemas in the city.  

Chelsea Hotel, 222 West 23rd Street (btw 7th and 8th Avenue) Manhattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: Here is an interesting error. The film makers have decided to use two different New York bridges for this sequence. As the scene begins, the taxi is clearly seen travelling on the 59th Street Bridge, then we cut to inside the taxi and clearly seen through the rear window is the Brooklyn Bridge which they are now travelling across. Incidently, the film is supposed to be set in 1973, and yet you can clearly see the Citigroup Center building in the distance which wasn't constructed until 1974.

Brooklyn Bridge, Lower East Side, Manhattan.
  The Brooklyn Bridge, built btw 1869 and 1883, connects Manhattan with New York's most populous borough, Brooklyn, at the time one of the country's largest cities. The bridge is one of the most magnificent landmarks in New York.  

South Portland Avenue and Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn.
   

Pappass's Brownstone, 25 South Portland Avenue and Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn.
