    The pawn shop showing the Medici symbol is at 605 Amsterdam. The building is gone. But the building at 610 Amsterdam in the reflection is still there.

          IThe bar was actually called Club 45 on W 45th St (Not sure of the exact address) a lot of actors and broadway people would hang out there.

            I do not think it was. No google exists of it. No “old guides” exist of it. No mention of it whatsoever

            Would have to be closer to the ” I’m walkin here scene” on 58th and 6th. The greek mythology symbols above the bar should give it away?

      I do not think the bar was Club 45. No Google images of it. No google history of it. I think Club 45 is made up, to be honest. Does not exist. Try again. The bar where Joe meets Ratso. Where? I am wonderint if it was at the studio.

    John Haughey, The dates on our post indicate your post was here before I posted but I don’t guess I saw it. We want to thank you, e and my buddy have spent 50 years trying to remember “Club45”, most likely didn’t help we usually tipped a few there.
    Thank you very much, a 50 year mystery solved for me. Bill Harman

    Note: the scene in front of Colony Records was filmed, if I’m not mistaken, at it’s original location at 52nd and Broadway. I believe they moved down to 1619 Broadway in 1970.

    It’s amazing to see these places. This movie had such incredible shot location s. Each one unique and in 3 states at least. Thank you!

    I love seeing smaller towns across America like Big Sring tx in the 40s, 50s, aND 60s. It’s before the big highways came along. Also before the huge super stores took over. It’s gone now and the 60’s was the tail end of these times. Little main street shops and locals all walking around.
