New York: Flights: JFK Airport
First of a loose trilogy, in which director Alan J Pakula explored the Seventies atmosphere of paranoia with The Parallax View (a political assassination conspiracy whitewashed by a government commission) and All The President’s Men (Woodward and Bernstein uncover the Watergate cover-up).
It was filmed on the streets of New York, and at the now defunct Filmways Studios, 246 East 127th Street at 2nd Avenue in East Harlem. It’s now a giant Foodways supermarket.
Bree’s apartment was 441 West 43rd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues, in the west side area once known as Hell’s Kitchen.
Her apartment was very convenient for the disco, which was The Sanctuary, a former church a few doors east at 407 43rd Street. It’s now the off-Broadway Westside Theatre.
