In this feature we're going to show you the results of a detective work, and no, they're definitely not the boring kind. Have a look after the cut!
We all have those moments – one second we’re just watching an old movie or looking at a classic album cover, and the next we find ourselves wondering just where they were shot and how these places look like now. Previously, we have shared with you a series of classic album covers superimposed onto their modern-day Google Street Views, and today we have more like it – this time including stills from popular movies, courtesy of Bob Egan, a real estate agent by profession and self-proclaimed “pop culture detective” on the side.
Apparently, it all began in 1977, when he discovered that he’s living just a block away from where the cover for “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” album was taken. Since then, Egan has expanded to include shooting locations for movies, TV shows, and even the places were certain paintings were based. He’s visited places he’s either tracked by himself or read about somewhere, and the results of his impressive detective work may be viewed on his website PopSpots. Although locations are varied, he says most of them were taken in Manhattan where he currently lives.
