7. Greenpoint Terminal

Luke Cage is set up by Mariah’s driver Sugar to check out a shipment Arturo III’s guys supposedly talked about during a drive. Luke heads there, which is shot at the Greenpoint Terminal on the Brooklyn-Queens border along Newtown Creek (part of which is a film studio and soundstage). When he opens up the truck, it explodes but Luke comes out just fine. When Arturo III tries to shoot him with the Judas bullet, this time, he’s invincible to it.

  1. El Barrio Restaurant Bakery is where Shades gets arrested in the final episode, and Yes, he mentions Cuchifritos which is just up the same street.
    Not hard to find the Carls Schulz Monument near Columbia University. Where Luke and Danny get perspective on things.
    The High Bridge is where Bushmaster again beats Luke.

    1. Thanks Glenn! We haven’t gotten to the rest of the second season yet, sadly! But soon!

  2. The theatre where Luke and Diamondback fight in ep. 7 is the United Palace at Broadway and 175.

    1. It is indeed! It’s now in the article (though it’s actually in episode 8). Untapped Cities once hosted a tour in the United Palace, it’s gorgeous!

  3. Someone needs a tour of uptown!

    Nobody says, uses “Malcolm X” to give directions, people use “Lenox Ave.” or “Seventh Ave.” Since that is what the NYC Subway uses

    The indigo Arms at 119 & Lenox, was a B&B and the lower level used as event space.

    Jackie Robinson Park is bound by Edgecombe Ave on the West and Bradhurst on the East.

    1. Harlemites often take short-cuts in referring to our streets, but when describing our fair Village to the public, we choose to honor Seventh Avenue with a name associated with the rich history of our Village – Malcolm-X Boulevard. Not taking away from my friend, who owns Indigo Arms, our article is about a Netflix Series. We will save our mention of shops, restaurants and B&B’s for another post. You may message me for information on an up-to-date Harlem Map, which will be on view this month on Malcolm-X Boulevard.
