Walking tour stop name: Duane Street and Lafayette Street: Foley Square
Associated walking tour: "Made in NY": Walking Tours of Film and Television in New York City
Walking tour stop description: This square, surrounded by skyscrapers and municipal buildings, was used as a filming location for 12 Angry Men (1957), Green Card (1990), The Devil's Advocate (1997) and Shaft (2000), and frequently makes appearance on Law & Order.
This clip from Green Card features an early scene on the steps of a municipal building on Foley Square, and a later scene filmed across the street:
In this clip from 12 Angry Men the same municipal building featured in Green Card is used in drastically different ways at the beginning (imposing, heavy and severe) and ending (righteous, inspirational) of the courtroom drama.
