  1. Probably the most comprehensive list of Heat locations I've seen. Just one thing, though: where did you get 939 S. Spring Street from for the parking lot where Nate and Neil meet up after the opening sequence? I've been looking for this location forever, but there isn't a 939 Spring Street. Looks like the highest numbers of Spring Street are the 800s.

    1. So sorry typo. 339 S. Spring Street. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    2. No worries. I wondered if it was a typo, so after I wrote that I had a look along Spring St and found it myself. Have been looking for it for years so I can cruise up there next time I'm in LA and take a 'now' pic. Without this site I wouldn't have found it. Thanks!

  2. Let me know if you ever figure out the location I am missing. Thanks for the kind words.

    1. Will do, I'm curious about that one myself.

      Was on another site yesterday, and someone in the comments has identified Roger Van Zant's house as 9024 Thrasher Ave, Hollywood. I compared the film with some images online as well as Google Earth and it's definitely the one. Apparently, Keanu Reeves lives there now.

    2. Are you retired from Location finding ? If so, thanks for all the great work

  3. Charlene is a selfish person who deserve to be alone and miserable.

  4. For those searching Google Earth for the hijack scene location, do a search for 725 Venice Blvd, LA. The scene takes place between there and the Convention Center parking garage. 650 Venice Blvd lands the user in Venice.
