location: Quinn Speeding.
Where can I find it in real life?
A. This scene was shot on Seaside Way, in Long Beach, CA.
Seaside Way is a somewhat obscure Long Beach street, located just below (south of) busy Ocean Blvd, and just above Shoreline Drive. It runs east/west from The Pike (shopping/dining center) to Linden Drive.
To be more specific, this
scene was shot on Seaside Way between the Long Beach Convention Center
(on the west) and Shoreline Drive (on the east).
Quinn is driving west on Seaside in the early part of the scene, when he gets the call from Deb. He then hangs the U-turn at Linden Avenue, and speeds back east on Seaside.
I shot the photo below in 2009:
Here is an aerial photo of the location. And here is a map link.
A. I drove past the
Convention Center on the day they were filming the museum square scene of Dexter and
the angel statue (for Episode 11), but I couldn't see any filming
activity from Pine Avenue.
However, when I got to the corner of
Pine & Seaside Way, and looked east, I noted that they had shut down
the street for filming. So I just waited for the episode to air, so I could find out
what they had shot on the street.
Naturally, I recognized Seaside Way
when it showed up (in the Quinn scene), since I'd spent time there earlier this year shooting photos of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse filming.
