The trailer for the movie “Barry” about President Barack Obama’s formative college days in the 1980s in New York City has been released. Barry, starring Devon Terrell, will premiere on Netflix on December 16th and we’re excited for the film locations, some of which you can already see in the trailer. We won’t get to see Obama’s Park Slope townhouse, which he didn’t move into until 1984, but we will see his life at Columbia University and his apartment on 94th Street.
1. Eldorado Apartments and Central Park
In the trailer, we see Barack sit in Central Park, just below the Eldorado Apartments on Central Park West and kick back with headphones. The contrast of course, is striking and deliberate between the eye in the sky luxury apartments in the Eldorado, and the publicly accessible spaces of Central Park.
