    Great locations! But…you forgot what is probably the most known spot for this movie….the confrontation with the three thugs at the steps towards the end. in fact, its the steps depicted in the original movie poster! I know exactly where they are. If interested I can go and take some pics and send them to you.
    I’m an artist….a cartoonist….and I’m presently in the making of a parody of this Death Wish poster. I can send you this image upon completion, as well. Check out my site to see my cartoon and abstract art works. Enjoy!

      Hi Bobby,

      Are you sure you are not referring to the first location on the third page? The copy I had from the movie is now gone from my computer, so I couldn’t double-check, but I believe this is the stairway from the movie poster.

      You can always send me a picture of the stairway if you wish, I do plan on eventually including pictures provided by visitors.

    Great site….I was always curious the apartment location where Paul attends a party and goes outside to enjoy the sunset. It looks like the same view from the movie Shamus where Shamus goes to visit Diane Cannon at her apartment. What do you think? what is Paul looking at in Death Wish from this roof top balcony?

      Good question. This is somewhere in Hell’s Kitchen. Paul is overlooking New York State Route 9A.

    The Chicago Union Station scenes at the end of the movie are actually the lower level of Grand Central Terminal in NYC.

    I am pretty sure that the Hawaii location is on the beach due west of the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu… I could be wrong, but it looks like it!
