The location: Zach shooting photos of car accident

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

    A. A public road.

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

    A. Somewhere in Miami.

Q. When did we see it on the show?

    A. In Episode 6, of Season 8, "A Little Reflection".

    Dexter is stalking Zach Hamilton, a young psychopath who may have killed Norma Rivera.

    In this short scene, Dexter watches as Zach shoots photos of a bloody accident scene.

    Dexter notes that Zach seems drawn to blood.

    ( In a later, similar scene, Dex sees Zach shooting photos of a bloody crime scene, and uses the occasion to learn more about him. )

Q. What is it actually in real life?

    A. A public road & beach.

Q. Where can I find it in real life?

    A. This scene was shot on the northeast side of the 5400 block of Ocean Boulevard, in Long Beach, CA.

    That's on the Long Beach peninsula, right across the street from Deb's beach house, and a short walk from Angel's beach café at
    Alamitos Bay.

    The brown & white peaked building seen behind Zach is the United States Sailing Center, at 5489 E. Ocean Blvd.

    Here is a Google StreetView of the building seen in the background of the scene:

Here is an aerial photo of the location.  And here is a map link.

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

    A.  For a recent episode (the 4th), I used Google StreetView to look at the Long Beach peninsula, to pinpoint where Dex was in a driving scene.
      While I was doing so, I noticed this building, which, when seen head-on from a distance, appears to have three tiered roofs.  I have driven past it many times without really paying attention to it, so I looked it up and found out it was the U.S. Sailing Center.

    Imagine my surprise when, at the start of this (6th) episode, what should appear behind Zach (while he was shooting photos) than that very same building with the three tiered roofs.
