Part 5

The actual locations where the 2014 movie
"Walk of Shame" was filmed.

50:55: To escape from the angry crack dealer, Meghan hops on a bus just as it pulls away.

That spot is at 2124 W. 7th Street, in Los Angeles.

In the screencap above, the camera is looking south.
The storefronts seen are across the street from (south of) MacArthur Park.

(The street sign reading "Western" is a fake.  It's actually 7th Street.)

Here is a matching Google StreetView of that same row of storefronts.

53:39: When she can't pay the bus fare, she's insulted by the passengers (who think
she's a hooker), sprayed with Mace by the bus driver, and thrown off the bus.

In the movie, it looks like she travels quite a few blocks before she's kicked off.
But in real life, when she gets off the bus, she's exactly where she started:
in the 2100 block of W. 7th Street, across from MacArthur Park.

They simply turned the camera in a different direction, this time, to change the view.

(In the screenshot below, the camera is looking east, from the south side of 7th.)

Here is a matching Google StreetView of that spot.


  53:42: They cut back to that graffiti-covered "crackhouse" next to the bridge.

The same cops are there that hassled her earlier, and they hear a radio report
that a woman in a yellow dress was ejected from a bus on Western.

1001 E. 1st Street, in downtown L.A.
(The camera is looking east.  To the right is the 1st Street bridge.)

Here is a matching  Google StreetView of that building & bridge.


54:57:  Meghan hears chanting and follows it to a brick building.

It turns out to be an Orthodox Jewish chabad (supposedly on Wilshire), where women aren't allowed.

There she accidentally tempts a nebbish trying to pray - who has a fetish for women singing.
So she winds up singing him a verse of "Call Me Maybe", hoping to earn bus fare.
But when they are discovered by the other worshippers, she's forced to flee.

This is actually a Clínica Romero, a community heath center,
at 2032 Marengo Street, in the Boyle Heights area of East L.A.
(a good three miles east of her last location on 7th Street).

Here is a Google StreetView of that brick building.


59:50: She walks past the "Olympic Branch Public Library", and stops at a pay phone,
where has the operator connect her with a hotline to her news studio, KZLA, for help.

But the KZLA switchboard guy doesn't believe her, and hangs up on her.

, at the same library, she spots a row of bicycle, and finding one that's unlocked,
she is about to borrow it, when the kid who owns it shows up.  She asks the boy for help,
but he demands to see her boobs first.  Angered, she shoves him down and steals his bike.

This actually is a library, but it's real name is the Malabar Library,
at 2801 Wabash Ave
(where it meets Forest Ave) in Boyle Heights.
That's about a mile southeast of the Chabad location.

Here is a Google StreetView of the library.


1:05:29: Having stolen the kid's bike, she is seen bicycling down the street:

She is really heading west on Wabash Ave, just west of Forest Ave.
and right across the street from the library.
(The camera is looking south)

The blue & red restaurant, seen in the background, is at 923 Forest Ave.

Here is a Google StreetView of the spot.

1:06:49: Her girlfriends and Gordon the bartender are seen in a car, as they set out to find her.

They are actually pulling away from the corner of Avery Street & Traction Avenue,
and heading west on Traction, near Gordon's loft (which is at 837 Tracton).

The blue building to the left, with the diamond shapes, is
830 Traction Ave.

Here is a matching Google StreetView of that spot.


: The kid, riding in the back of a police cruiser, spots her riding his bike:

She is riding east on the south side of W. 9th Street (AKA James Woods Blvd),
just east of New Hampshire Avenue, at approximately 2920 W. 9th Street, in L.A.'s Koreatown.

Here is a matching Google StreetView of the spot.

So, she ditches the bike next to a fence and runs away:
