On the corner of 72nd St and Central Park West sits a very imposing looking building called The Dakota, or as it’s called in Roman Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby (1968), The Bramford. The Bramford is home to Guy and Rosemary Woodhouse, and their strange neighbours Roman and Minnie Castevet.
I was pretty psyched to get to this location today given my slight obsession with this film. Unfortunately it was covered in scaffolding at the bottom, but it still looks super creepy, particularly given that this is also the site where John Lennon was murdered in 1980. There were lots of tour groups gathering at that spot which I thought was incredibly macabre. But from a film-fan perspective, it was so excellent to see the building that plays such a key role in one of my favourite films.

Hint for tomorrow’s photo: a place where friends gather for a meal.
