Winter's Tale (2014)

New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a young girl, who is dying.


otsoNY Comments: Early on we see an image of the current Grand Central Station and the date displayed is the 1800's. The current structure was not built until 1913. The wrong name is also used: it is NOT Grand Central Station, it's called Grand Central Terminal.

Grand Central Terminal, 89 East 42nd Street and Park Avenue, Manhattan.
  Grand Central is a commuter rail terminal station at 42nd Street and Park Avenue. Built by and named for the New York Central Railroad in the heyday of American long-distance passenger rail travel, it is the largest train station in the world by number of platforms.  

(Near) Mayor's Office, 51 Chambers Street and Centre Street, Manhattan.
   

Bandshell, Central Park (from 66th to 72nd Street) Manhattan.
   

The Mall, Central Park, Manhattan.
  A walkway leading to the beautiful Bethesda Terrace, the Central Park Mall runs through the middle of the Park from 66th to 72nd street. It remains the sole formal feature of Olmsted and Vaux's naturalistic creation.  

New York Sun, 292 West 41st Street and 8th Avenue, Manhattan.
   

53 Prospect Park West (btw 1st & 2nd Streets) Brooklyn.
   

New York Public Library, 5th Avenue (btw 40th and 42nd Street) Manhattan.
   

Gramercy Theatre, 127 East 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue, Manhattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: This scene was shot on Gansevoort Street with the use of green screen technology to incorporate the Brooklyn Bridge which of course is nowhere near Gansevoort Street.

Gansevoort Street (btw Greenwich & Washington Streets) Manhattan.
   

otsoNY Comments: Although it looks like the Brooklyn Bridge, the scene was in fact shot on a sound stage. It is not until Colin Farrell's character jumps from the bridge into the East River is the actual real Brooklyn Bridge used.

(Near) 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.
