location: Rita's Hotel.
This establishing shot of the exterior of the fictional "Z Hotel", where Rita worked, appeared in Episode 4 (of Season 3), "All in the Family".
Rita was fired from her job at the hotel in that episode, and as a result was introduced (by Miguel Prado's wife) to a new career in real estate.
In real life, the building shown is a condo called "Ocean Place", at 226 Ocean Drive, in Miami Beach, FL.
The photo (looking west/northwest) shows the southeast side of the condo, which faces Ocean Beach Park and the beach, between 2nd & 3rd Streets.
Only the exterior of the condo was used for this one brief intro shot; I'm not sure where the interiors of that scene were filmed - they may have simply been shot at the studio.
( Thanks to Richard Gaunt
for sending me this one! )
This is not the same
location that they used for the hotel in the first season - which I'm still
