Tuesday Eye Candy: Kent Avenue Classic
From the 1953 film noir "Pickup on South Street"
A couple of weeks back, a reader tipped us off to this scene from the 1953 Richard Widmark film Pickup on South Street. The picture was released as a Criterion Collection DVD in 2004, and though we're not generally fans of noirs that don't follow pinot, the flick was pretty darn good.
Note the building at right - 150 Kent Avenue, whose demise we chronicled in an earlier post. Here it is again in the film, from a slightly different angle: still part of the BEDT complex. And again in the foreground of this late 2004 photo, with the former waste transfer facility still standing where the Northside Piers luxury tower now rises.
Does anyone recall George's Restaurant, at the extreme left of the photo above? It would have been around 131 - 133 Kent Avenue from the look of the sign.
