‘Taxi Driver’ Was (Partially) Filmed in Brooklyn and Here’s the Pic to Prove It


    You talkin’ to me? Brownstoner reader Andrew Porter dug up this image of a young Cybill Shepherd and Martin Scorsese posing between shoots of the 1976 film Taxi Driver — in Brooklyn.

    Visible in the left background is the campaign office of Charles Palentine, the fictional presidential candidate for whom Shepherd’s character Betsy volunteered in the film. Indeed, the location at 101 Clark Street on Pineapple Walk was, in fact, an empty store that today is the location of Signature Dental.
