I noticed this shot while watching 1977′s Annie Hall. Specifically I noticed the 4 short buildings in the background of this clip from the 34 year old film. Do they still exist?
From where Woody stands on 2nd Avenue and 68th you would no longer be able to see them because of a large glass facade high-rise now built on this corner. In fact it looks like the corner had been cleared at the time the movie was made in 1977. There seems to be a construction fence around the cleared lot, allowing a view of the “4 sisters” on 67th street. So the question I wanted answered was, Do they still exist? Despite the construction all over this area, these four sisters still stand and look exactly the same as they did in 1977:
