Hi,

I wondered if anyone could help me out. I'm visiting New York in a few months and wanted to look up some of the places OUATIA was filmed in. Can anyone help me out here?

Cheers!

Water Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and check out Finelli's (a former skeakeasy) though smaller than Fat Moe's it is very similar, its at 94 Prince St. in Manhattan, then also check out Chinatown at Canal St.

Enjoy.

Cigar Joe,

Water Street is, in fact, in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn, not Williamsburg.  Bugsy's death is filmed here.  DUMBO is south of Williamsburg, and both the Manhattan & Brooklyn Bridges tower over it.  

DUMBO and Williamsburg are actually 3-5 miles apart, though one would not know this from watching the film, which sort've combines several Brooklyn and Manhattan neighborhoods into one, mythical old world New York.    

Other scenes, such as Noodles and Max's first meeting were shot on the Williamsburg street set (South 8th Street, by the Williamsburg Bridge).

Cafe Fanelli is a great location--it was put to great use in a memorable sequence in the Irish mob thriller State of Grace.  

If you are in Williamsburg or anywhere near it, you must go to the famed Peter Luger for some of the best steak you will ever enjoy.  On top of that, it is one of the oldest establishments in New York (est. 1887), and still retains its old world feel.

Happy location hunting, Poppyseed.

-Jon

You are right Jon, Water Street is DUMBO, my mistake.

Mystic:

The Beach Scene was filmed at the Don Ceasar in St Petersburg Beach in St Pete Florida.
The Ballroom scene where Noodles takes Deborah to dinner was inside the Don Ceasar as well.
 I believe the scene where Noodles rapes Deborah in the car was filmed somewhere in the Deal New Jersey area close to Asbury Park.
An incredible film worthy of my top film for any year.....classic is not kind enough.......... Cool

Hi all!

There seem to be different theories on which bridge is in the scene where the boys walk past it, then go round the corner and Noodles stabs Bugsy.

Is it the Manhattan, Brooklyn or Williamsburg bridge?

Any thoughts gratefully received

Hi poppyseed,
Two bridges are displayed is the movie, they at first glance look similar, the one where the boys walk across the street (Water St. in DUMBO, Brooklyn) is the Manhattan Bridge (its towers are vertical, like an "H") the Williamsburg bridge appears as a backdrop to some street scenes its towers cant a bit towards the centerline of the roadway they look more like this "/-\", hope this clears it up for you.

Well I think that actually there are 3 bridges displayed.  Also the Brooklyn bridge in the scene from 1968 when De Niro is walking with the suitcase at night, you can see the Brooklyn bridge in the background.  I noticed this on the much clearer DVD print.

Can you be more specific. I just watched State of Grace and OUATIA in the same week and no location that was in both particularly stood out.  Huh

That is the Manhattan Bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge may well be in the section where De Niro is walking with the suitcase, it kind of looks like he's under the BQE. I'll have to check. So there are probably all three Manhattan-Brooklyn crossings in the film.

There are no locations particular to both that I know of it's just that Cafe Fanelli looks like a more compact version of Fat Moes. Grandfather clock and tin ceilings etc., etc.
