237 Madison, Behind Victor’s Supposed Mansion – Revisiting “Eyes Wide Shut” – Google Maps Redux

Kubrick crossfades from Bill and Alice exiting the San Remo, in Eyes Wide Shut, to a 3/4 view of the building that will serve as Victor’s mansion. The location is the Polish Consulate General, in the Joseph Raphael de Lama house, at the corners of East 37th Street and Madison Avenue in New York. Behind it, we see a part of 237 Madison Ave. which is Morgan’s Hotel. 233 is the home of the Polish Consulate General.

The number 237 will have meaning for fans of Kubrick’s The Shining.

Below is a still from the film of Victor’s.
