John Street Park in Dumbo

Perhaps expectedly, DUMBO (which stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass), with maybe the most photographed street in New York City is also one of the most popular filming destinations. With amazing views of Manhattan and a mix of historic and modern architecture, the neighborhood appears in dozens of highly successful films. Donohue lists 27 films between 1955 to 2017 that have featured the historic neighborhood.

Broken City, a neo-noir crime thriller starring Mark Wahlberg as a private investigator who is hired by the Mayor of New York City to investigate his wife, has a scene shot at 135 Plymouth Street and Anchorage Street. These streets also appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and in Bridge of Spies, the latter of which made Anchorage Street look as it did in the 1960s. 135 Plymouth Street, just a block from the bridge, was also used in at least two other films. The Dark Tower, based on the Stephen King novels that begins where book six left off, uses the address as the location of Dixie’s Pig. The address also appears in John Wick 2, starring Keanu Reeves.
