I had the misfortune to have to be in Manhattan this morning. Misfortune because it was like a monsoon at certain times. Nevertheless, I soldiered on like any good honorary API Operative and got some location photos from two episodes of AMC-TV‘s series Rubicon.
Note that all photos have been resized and resampled to VGA.
Let me begin by putting the API building in its South Street Seaport context:
Provisionally, based of the glimpses I’ve been able to see out of its windows, I’m thinking the Conference Room is here:
Trouble is, I don’t see any blinds in those windows, so this could change.
Astute viewers will have noticed something, but I’ll save that until the end.
In episode 2, we got a shot of the infamous number 13 parking space used by David Hadas:
It looks like this:
In that same episode, Will passes by a stylish building facade:
In daytime, it looks like this:
It’s right across the street from the API Building, which is reflected at its left. And this address is 180 Maiden Lane:
In that same episode, James Wheeler has a meeting here:
Which is this in real life:
And the overall area:
Still in episode 2, Wheeler meets with Katherine Rhumor here:
Which looks like this in real-life (that’s the New York Federal Reserve building in the background):
And that’s located at:
Episode 3 opens with Will walking to work from here:
I circled and passed by that area maybe three times because in real-life, it looks like this:
Wow, how that camera made it look so different! Plus, with today’s rain and wind, the banner with the cafe’s name was wrapped around its pole, removing it from my immediate discovery.
Will is followed:
And that’s this:
And when Will looks behind from across the street:
It in real-life that actually is across the street:
And that’s located at Water and Dover Streets:
And from near the end of the block, the entire area looks like this:
Now, back at the beginning of this post, sharp eyes will have noticed something in the API Building photo: the front doors were open!
And lookee here:
I quickly snuck that photo. Then I slowly peeked in — only to find a security guard staring at the door! So, no other photo for me!
As it was, there wasn’t anything to see. A small area filled with debris and a large fan running. I have no idea what it was all about. I saw no evidence of any API set, either.
I would have liked to have gotten more photos, but the weather barely made getting these possible. Let’s see how tomorrow’s weather is (yeah, I have to be in Manhattan again).
