Your doorman is intimidating

As the credits roll, the film begins with a panoramic aerial view of north-east New York, taken from the roof of The Majestic apartment building across the street from the Dakota (if anyone has a contact at The Majestic, I’d love to go up and shoot how the cityscape has changed).

In the Apthorp, a building similar in idea to the Dakota, for example…No clue where this is – I originally thought it might be Argosy, but the two don’t match up. There, she learns that he’s in on the conspiracy as well and quickly leaves.There’s a reflection of a neon sign in the window, but it’s too slight to make out. After reading the books, Rosemary realizes that Guy was responsible for causing his rival to go blind and has betrayed her. We get our first look at the exterior of his office, located at 62nd St and Fifth Ave. Rosemary returns to the apartment and gives birth to the son of Satan.…apartments that used to span an entire floor have been broken up into smaller units by dividing the hallways with closets.If you were to punch through the back of this closet, you’d find yourself in the neighboring apartment (when I was scouting this, all I could think about was After seeing the apartment, Rosemary convinces Guy in a walk-and-talk (film lingo! Assuming they’re walking away from the building on 72nd Street (which would make sense, based on the traffic), I believe they’re approaching Broadway, which would mean the Californian restaurant is now a Gray’s Papaya.However, as I was rewatching the film, I was completely surprised to find that there are actually very few exterior shots of New York.

The vast majority of the film takes place in the apartment, with only a handful of scenes that show the city.You can see an elevated ramp in the background of the shot, and there are VERY few of these in Manhattan. Following this scene, Rosemary is given her infamous tannis root necklace (no such thing as tannis root, FYI), is raped by Satan, gets a sudden craving for raw steak, loses tons of weight and skin color, and cuts off her hair.As she becomes more and more anxious about her pregnancy, she gets a call from Hutch who says he has something urgent to tell her.However, the shot moves too quickly to be 100% sure.Another angle: After settling in, Rosemary and Guy come home one night to find that a fellow resident (a woman who had a mysterious relationship with the Castevets) has committed suicide.In a whirl, she walks into the middle of traffic on Fifth Ave at 55th Street. The enormous Disney store now occupies that corner building: Last time we saw Rosemary on Fifth Ave, the trees in Central Park were dead.
