Looking the Other Direction from the Back Fence (2) – Revisiting “Eyes Wide Shut” – Google Maps Redux

Another Greenwich anchor Kubrick gives us is a street corner that can be identified by the club The Back Fence. This live shot is between the scene in which Bill has his altercation with the frat boys, and the scene in which he meets Domino.
