3rd Street and Sullivan (2) - Revisiting "Eyes Wide Shut" - Google Maps Redux

In Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick gives us a Greenwich Village view as an anchor as Bill leaves Marion Nathanson's apartment and begins his odyssey, but the little that's shown in the view gives no identity landmarks and we can't read the streetsign (or I couldn't) though we vaguely see it through the dark. I could tell, however, there were two Ls in the sign. Having earlier discovered that another Greenwich anchor that Kubrick gives us was The Back Fence, I looked for neighboring streets with 2 Ls and reasoned Sullivan might be the one. I then easily found this corner where we had the white brick beside a red brick building on the corner and a dark brick building on the opposite corner.
