The Level Club facade

The Balloonman strikes first outside the apartment of fallen financier Ronald Danzer, which is purportedly to be The Level Club, a former masonic club and hotel on the Upper West Side turned into upscale residence. In the scene on the street, which is mobbed with press hoping to get a glimpse of Danzer, we also see the iconic Ansonia Hotel.
