Chase Manhattan Bank, Dog Day Afternoon
- Larry C. Morris / The New York Times
So, you'll have to use your imagination a little on this one. The Chase Manhattan branch in Gravesend at Avenue P between Ocean Parkway and McDonald Avenue where Brooklyn's most famous hostage situation actually took place has since been shuttered
, and the stretch of Prospect Park West (between 17th and 18th)
where Sidney Lumet filmed his iconic version is also unrecognizable these days. Still, no reason not to stop by and take a picture of yourself screaming "ATTICAAAAAA," or something. Surely you'll be the first person to have thought of it.
