8. Queensboro Bridge

Aerial of Roosevelt Island

King Jaffe Joffer and entourage cross the Queensboro Bridge to go to the McDowell’s house after Lisa’s father alerts him that Akeem is there. Akeem has left, however, by the time the King and his family arrive.

It’s a brief scene but you see the upper roadway of the Queensboro Bridge and a few architectural landmarks in the shot, including the United Nations and the Chippendale top of 550 Madison Avenue.
