DEXTER Filming Locations - hundreds of actual places where the TV show Dexter was filmed.

The location: Alex's Apartment

Q. What is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. An apartment.

Q. Where is it supposed to be on the show?

    A. 14501 S. 20th St, in Miami.

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 4, of Season 7, "Run".

    Ukrainian mob boss Isaak is looking a way to stop Miami Metro police from shutting down his strip joints (as they try to find the killer of detective Mike Anderson).

    The real killer, Viktor, is already dead (at the hands of Dexter), so Isaak decides to give the police someone they can blame - so that they will close the case and leave them alone.

    The patsy he chooses is an unfortunate bartender at the Fox Hole club, by the name of Alex Dubrozny.

    Isaak and his goons drop by Alex's apartment.

    By threatening his family back home, they force Alex to write a suicide note confessing to the murder of Mike Anderson.

    Then they make him shoot himself in the head with the same gun Viktor used to kill Anderson.

    We see the apartment later in the same episode when Dexter and the police show up at the crime scene. They assume it's a suicide, and that Alex killed Anderson.

    But Dexter knows better. He knows that Viktor killed Anderson.

    Angel also finds it suspicious that the man would have killed himself under those circumstances.

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. An apartment.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

A. This was shot at 5955 Barton Avenue., in a small apartment complex built back in the 1920's, which consists of five cottage-like, garden-style apartments.

It's on the north side of Barton, just east of El Centro Ave.

That's just west of Hollywood Forever, which is where they shot the cemetery scenes with Speltzer.

And it's just a few blocks south of Sunset-Gower Studio, where they film Dexter.

    Here is a StreetView from Google:

    knock on their door, or do anything that might disturb the residents. ]

Q. How the heck did you figure out where it was?

    A.  In the early seasons, I usually had to hunt down the locations after viewing the episodes, using clues from the various scenes.  By the now, though, I've developed a small group of fans, spies & tipsters who kept an eye out for Dexter filming in their neighborhoods, and would let me know in advance when something was about to film there.

    Between those reports, my own personal reconnaissance around town, and a few new resources I discovered, by the time the first episode airs, I already know most (but not all) of the filming locations, and only need to watch the episodes and match up the scenes with the correct locations.

    This group of helpful fans includes Rick, Ellen, Elaine, Mia, Joel, Susan, Eric, Jeff, Kerry & others. My thanks to all of them.

    This tip came from Rick.  (Thanks, Rick!)
