Taxi Driver (Dir: Martin Scorsese, 1976).

Doorway, 226 East 13th St. (between 2nd and 3rd Avenue), Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA.

Martin Scorsese is known for using real locations, and to capture the gritty, scummy breeding ground of dirty crime of New York in the 70’s background for Taxi Driver, he used some of 70’s New York’s least attractive addresses. For that reason most of the key external locations have been bulldozed, the only one important enough to the film to visit is Iris’s (Jodie Foster) hotel doorway at 226 East 13th Street in the East Village. It’s not much to look at but it’s a moving moment in the film and if you’re a Scorsese fan it’s worth seeing before it’s removed like the rest of ‘Taxi Driver’’s New York.
