The interior of Meadowport Arch, Prospect Park, Brooklyn.


The tree in the background matches.

(To find this site: We knew the interior of the arch didn't match up with the arches we've researched in Central Park, so figuring from the other photos that the shoot was in Brooklyn, we looked in Prospect Park.)

Another view of the arch.

Again, with Mr. D.

"Magic Shoe Shop"

We haven't found this location yet, but most likely it's between Prospect Park and Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, the two areas where the other shots were taken during the day's photoshoot.

(To find this site: Marie looked for the address of "theatrical suppliers Brooklyn." And this was the third that came up.)

The Boardwalk is called The Riegelmann Boardwalk.

(This photo was sent in by a German reader of PopSpots named Andy. I can't find your email, but I will add your whole name if you write me. Thanks - Bob.)

These final shots don't have backgrounds so they can't be PopSpotted, but they complete the photo session. First up, Dylan in a car.
