Wow, impressive work!  Shocked

If you wan to have fn with Google Earth, active the "3D view" and try to spot the location of the scene on the poster of the movie. I did it yesterday and i put myself right at the point of view of the camera... i'll will send a snapshot in a week...

Nice A1 your posts are invaluable,I was born in Astoria, Queens, and used to go through Brooklynmany a time in the 1950's-1960's. Then I moved out to Montana for 24 years.  I'm about 100 miles north of NYC now and will make a trip down to Water Street in the future.

A1 thank you.  Great work.  You really have an eye for detail.  Looks like you're going to have a detailed NY itinerary as well.  Smiley

Yeah, but I thought it would go without saying.

Another interesting location insight.  Thank you A1.  That mausoleum was impressive.  The cemetary groundskeeper was pretty good in that scene.  Much better than the rental car agent in the train station when Noodles returns.  He was terrible.

Screen cap from the movie


Underneath the inscription is the name GATES


Photograph of the actual mausoleum in Woodlawn Cemetery






Kudos A-1! Very fascinating analysis. It's interesting to see the Star of David missing
from the recent mausoleum photo. I suppose it was a prop for the movie?

Great Work you need to put this all in a book!  Afro

And remember I can volunteer to drive you around the area, I know Long Island City well  Cool, I wonder if Leone made use of the old Kaufman Studios nearby for some interior sets.

I thought I read somewhere that the mausoleum was a set built for the scene. Great to know that I can visit it some time Cool
