the naked city was shot on location in nyc in 1947. much of the action takes place around rivington st. when i noticed the shapiros wine i realized that this was not shot on some hollywood backlot. so, a nice snapshot of the neighborhood. they even have a scene in the essex market. robert osborne said many of the bustling street shots were taken from a truck which preserved the cameramans anonymity and the naturalistic ambiance.
