Moments when TV and Film won me over through place narratives.
Girls (2012-2017) I know Café Grumpy from the HBO show, Girls. (which everyone should watch btw.) It's a quaint coffee shop at Greenpoint street in Brooklyn. In Girls universe, Ray is the manager and Hannah is that barista who barely shows up.

Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012) There were so many references to the Walt Disney Concert Hall at Celeste and Jesse Forever. This establishment may have witnessed the lowest and highest peak of their relationship.More details
Moonrise Kingdom (2012) It's always a treat to trace Wes Anderson's film locations. The dancing by the beach scene is definitely one of my favorites.
Fort Wetherill, Jamestown, RI 02835, USA
Take This Waltz (2011) This scene was set on a ride called "Scrambler." It resonated with me because it was a familiar reminder of youth and being free.

5 to 7 (2014) One of my favorite films with Anton Yelchin as lead. Here's where he meets the love of his life, who only allowed him to meet her from 5 to 7pm.
