had a hard time finding this one, in part because I couldn't make out
the small number on the house you see when they first get out of the
car. As you can see in the blow-up of a screencap below, the DVD
image simply isn't clear enough to make out the numbers. I
thought at first that it was 402 or 406 or perhaps 426.
since it was a night scene, there wasn't much else to go on, other than
the fact that the street was lined with tall palm trees, and was
obviously an upscale neighborhood. After checking many 400 blocks
and failing to find it, I gave up for a while.
I began a new effort to track down the last remaining locations from
the first season. This time, I was aided by something I
didn't have back in 2006 - a Blu-Ray player. I rented the Blu-Ray
disc from Netflix, went to the scene, and sure enough, the numbers were
sharp and clear: without doubt, the number on the house was 906.
Of course, there are an awful lot of 900 blocks in greater Los Angeles.
started out in Long Beach, their favorite filming location. Those
tall palm trees and wide lawns reminded me of the upscale Country Club
neighborhood in northwest Long Beach (where Dexter has filmed
before), but when I checked, there were no 900's there. So I
looked at all other 900 blocks in Long Beach, and still turned up nothing.
I moved beyond Long Beach, my next hunch was Hancock Park.
eventually, I switched to Bing's Birds-Eye photos. I began
looking at all the homes just south of 9th Street, and sure enough,
there it was, at Windsor & 9th. I repositioned StreetView for a closer look,
and there was no doubt.
