As some of the other members of this board I attended the recent Morricone concert in New York City. I met with almost 30 people from another website. That combined with the fact that this was my first visit to the US and a long way to travel made me stay for an entire week. One of the things me and four of my friends did was to hunt down some of those famous movie locations. On day four, Sunday feb 4th, we took the subway across to Brooklyn and made our way down to Water st. to try and find the exact loaction Leone had used in OUATIA. It was really cold and windy that day and the sun was bright, making the streets very dark in the shots. I did some photoshopping though to even it out a bit.

This is pretty much the exact shot used for cover art and poster (Which is hanging in my bedroom 8))



That's me in the blue jacket in the place of Dominic.



The archway Bugsy was walking through.

It sure was nice to finally get to visit this place and it was really grand to stand there looking up at that beautiful bridge. I also went down to Chinatown and strolled through Mott street just to be able to say "Hey, I've been there!" when watching the movie. ;D There's really something special about NY and I'm definitely going back some time soon. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Glad you enjoyed the experience, both at the bridge and at the concert.


What was your favorite piece Morricone played that night?

I say OUATIA. It almost moved me and my father to tears.

Amazing pictures. It's kind of spooky to see real people in those streets of that mythical city. ???


I'm to NYC in July 2008 and going to visit those places that's for sure! ...if my schedule allows me.

I was reading about this new Google-feature called Street View. Basically they have collected pictures from certain locations and made it possible to navigate through them, kinda like walking step-by-step with the ability to look around. So I decided to check out this location and found it. Now you can see for yourself and have a walk around the block. Click on the picture and you'll be able to use the arrows to look right/left and move back/forward. + and - zooms in and out. Turn right on Water Street (Right in front of you and take another step right on Adams street and you're at the arch as well.) Have fun! O0
