The law firm of Foggy Nelson (Elden Henson) and Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) is not located in Hell’s Kitchen. Instead, you will have to go to Williamsburg to discover this building visible in the series. Its style fits well with that of an office where the two partners have few resources.

2. Josie’s, Daredevil’s bar

In reality, Matt, Foggy and Karen Page’s (Deborah Ann Woll) favorite bar is in Brooklyn, a long way from Hell’s Kitchen where it’s supposed to be. This is where they like to meet and where Foggy and Karen drink the famous “eel”. Although the façade is quite different from the series, the interior and the atmosphere of the Turkey’s Nest are totally in line with Josie’s bar.

Don’t look for the merry-go-round that Castle regularly comes to Central Park to watch! It’s actually in Queens, where it’s part of our heritage.
