Shot locations of The Warriors - The Warriors of the night
1025 Boardwalk West, Brooklyn, USA
The Warriors are hiding under the boardwalk at Coney Island. Aware that fighting with the Rogues is inevitable, they are looking for makeshift weapons. If the place still exists, it is today inaccessible. However, it is highly recommended that you take a walk along the promenade to enjoy the atmosphere of the place and revel in good ice cream while admiring the Atlantic Ocean.
316 Riverside Drive, New York, USA
The biggest gangs in New York are together. When they are all in place, Cyrus (Roger Hill) speaks. The place is supposed to represent the Conclave in the Bronx but in reality it is Riverside Park in Manhattan. It is here, in a sumptuous reproduction of the mausoleum of Halicarnassus, that the tomb of former president Ulysses S. is located. Grant…
Coney Island – Stillwell Avenue
2801-2999 Stillwell Avenue, Brooklyn, USA
Finally back in their stronghold of Coney Island, the Warriors arrive by subway on Stillwell Avenue, followed closely by the Rogues. They can be seen walking in a deserted Luna Park, with the famous Wonder Wheel, the theme park’s iconic Ferris wheel, in the background.
2067-2069 Broadway, New York, USA
The Warriors are looking to rush into the subway to escape their attackers. If the place is recognizable, the staircase by which they reach the dock no longer exists today. The Warriors was one of President Ronald Reagan’s favorite films…
There’s a chase between the Warriors and the Baseball Furies. The statue of Fireman’s Monument, near Riverside Park on the Hudson River, can be seen on the screen. In the film, the role of Ajax is given to James Remar. The actor will be noticed many years later in the role of Dexter’s father in the eponymous series.
30 West 72nd Street, New York, USA
A Warriors game comes out of the subway and comes face to face with the Furies baseball gang. The place was also filmed in A Day in Hell, the third part of the Die Hard saga. This is where John McClane (Bruce Willis) and Zeus Carver (Samuel L. Jackson) answer the phone, even though the phone in question no longer exists. In The Warriors, we see Gray’s Papaya restaurant. Feel free to try their hot dogs. Not only are they not expensive at all, but they are considered among the best in all of Manhattan.
Coney Island Beach
The Warriors meet the Rogues on the beach for the final showdown. It is unlikely, given the geography of the landscape, that this scene was shot here. The presence of rocks, wooden plots and dunes suggests that it is Breezy Point, opposite Coney Island. This scene is the only one that takes place during the day.
Bushwick Avenue, Brooklyn, USA
Hunted by the police, whose irruption put an end to their meeting, the Warriors gang is hiding in this cemetery. One of the members, Rembrandt (Marcelino Sánchez), climbs on a statue to find an escape route. The place has changed very little since the making of Walter Hill’s film. Inaugurated in 1849, this eternal resting place measures 91 hectares. Famous occupants include jazzman Lester Young, painter Martin Heade and tap dancer Bill “Bojangles” Robinson.
