  1. I watched that movie and it's really good. It shows how basketball is played during those times.

    basketball camps in new york

  2. Just another reason to visit LA.

  3. Great guide! Nice to see what these places look like today.

  4. The part where Billy is being confronted by the mobster brothers is probably the port of los angeles.

  5. ^ I think you're right. The way the industrial area looks in the background and how high the water level is in the LA river it very well looks like the port of los angeles

  6. Those pictures are great. Reminds me of an old Miami Vice website where you could sign on as a member and add photos of then and now locations. That site had music added. It got shut down...figures! I tried to find Billy's apartment. I noticed Neptune's nearby. I found a Days Inn that was called Neptunes...I don't think that was it, though.

  7. All the pictures are cool but especially the picture of Basketball Court Where Billy And Sidney Do Their First Basketball Hustle / 601 E. 23rd Street, Los Angeles (Note: The Court Is Actually On The Southeast Corner Of E 22nd Street And Trinity Street)

  8. Inflatables are made of high-quality PVC materials, and because of this is it can support endless sliding, jumping and bouncing fun. Furthermore, the durable materials also make it nearly puncture-proof, thus enchanting kids of all ages for hours. affordable bounce houses

  9. Here's a great article that's come out since:

  10. There is a tunnel scene right before they are running on arlington, i think the tunnel is on sycamoe the tunnel on sycamore runs through the 10 fwy

  11. Where is the location billy walks down the stairs after riding the train?

  12. Billy being held at gun point is in long beach
