Ricky and Tre are pulled over - 3875 Crenshaw Blvd. Los Angeles, Ca. 90008

They're pulled over in front of Angelus Funeral Home.




Ricky and Tre run - in between* 3026 & 3030 5th Ave. Los Angeles, Ca. 90018

The houses were built in 1916. The alley in which they run into, is in reality directly behind the houses. The alley is gated from both ends, so I wasn't able to gain access. My photos were taken through the gates. In screenshot number one, the camera is facing north towards W. 30th St. In screenshot number two, the camera is facing south. When they split up and walk their separate ways, Ricky goes north and Tre goes south.
