In Search Of … Rubicon Locations #2

I love the way the AMC-TV series Rubicon uses New York City locations. Not since The Equalizer in the 1980s has so much of the grittier and memorable areas of the city been seen.

In this post, I show more locations from the series as they appear in real life.

In episode 9, Kale discovers someone tailing here him:


Click = big

Which is this in real life:


Click = big

That’s Spring Street and Lafayette Street. I wound up taking it from the opposite angle. Eh.

In episode 10, we are shown this street:


Click = big

This is another location I wound up shooting from the opposite angle:


Click = big

What happened was, I recalled this from the episode’s shot:


Click = big

The big red lobster sign. And since I happened to be on the street — without searching for it — I just took pictures. But not of the other direction!

This is at:


Click = big

Also in episode 10, we see Katherine Rhumor walk down this street:


Click = big


Click = big


Click = big

And that’s here in real life:


Click = big

And what is that overhang?


Click = big

It’s …


Click = big

… a bank!

And this is at:


Click = big

Also in episode 10, we see Maggie cross to a hotel:


Click = big


Click = big

In real life:


Click = big


Click = big

Which really is a hotel:


Click = big

That building isn’t six stories tall, so they must number rooms differently, or the props department dressed a door with number 607 for whatever reason.

And this is at:


Click = big

Finally in episode 10, we see an exterior of what they’re saying is Andy’s apartment building:


Click = big

Which is this in real life:


Click = big

Which is at:


Click = big

More views:


Click = big


Click = big

So, Will’s apartment should be right around the corner, no? Let’s look:


Click = big


Click = big

No. Will’s apartment building looks like this, as established in episode 3:


Click = big

I’m still on the trail of Kale’s building. But I think they threw me a ringer with Will’s place. I have good reason to suspect they shot it in Brooklyn. I’ll show why in a later post.

In episode 11, Spangler has a meet:


Click = big


Click = big


Click = big

In real-life, that’s at:


Click = big

Which is a short walk from the API Building:


Click = big

And looks like this:


Click = big


Click = big


Click = big

That’s all for this time.

In a later post: photos of Katherine Rhumor’s place!

    Hey, cool blog! Just FYI, I live two blocks from Will’s apt. It’s 260 E 10th St., between 1st and “A”.

    Hope this helps!

      REALLY! I will make a trip to get some photos of that soon. Thanks very much! I hadn’t gotten as far up as the East Village. That was one of my planned destinations.
