237 Madison, Behind Victor's Supposed Mansion - Revisiting "Eyes Wide Shut" - Google Maps Redux

Kubrick crossfades from Bill and Alice exiting the San Remo, in Eyes Wide Shut, to a 3/4 view of the building that will serve as Victor's mansion. The location is the Polish Consulate General, in the Joseph Raphael de Lama house, at the corners of East 37th Street and Madison Avenue in New York. Behind it, we see a part of 237 Madison Ave. which is Morgan’s Hotel. 233 is the home of the Polish Consulate General.

The number 237 will have meaning for fans of Kubrick's The Shining. 237 is also the address of the Verona Restaurant on the set, and appears to perhaps be the address of the hospital, as the shot of Bill entering the hospital lobby shows the street address of 236 opposite. See the San Remo post for another 237.

Below is a still from the film of Victor's.
