Readerpix: Where is this door?

12/20/2008:

You know what I finally did today?

Slept. Slept all day! While it was nice to supposedly “catch up” with all the sleep I’ve missed lately, sigh, it wasn’t a restful sleep (damn you holiday parties!) Anyway…

Hoboken411 reader Brooklyn Bridget sent in this picture taken in Hoboken. Do you know where it is?

The door is on court between 1st and 2nd. The On the Waterfront scenes are on court between Newark and Observer behind where the old Fabian Theatre was (now CVS and NYSC).

[quote comment=”123778″]Nice pic. Do any film buffs out there know if this is the area where part of On the Waterfront was filmed? The part where Brando and the girl are being chased by the car after they find his brother dead? I always thought it was but never knew for sure. Again, nice photo.[/quote]
Yes, that scene was shot on Court St. The Hoboken Historical Society had a show about the movie a few years ago, and there was some handout with all of the locations used for the film.
