Got there some spots of buildings that I know, but can't figure out what was the tower near Central Park from which had fell that cat in the bucket? Very curious.

Sorry, never watched "Stuart Little" 1 OR 2.

What you may want to do is look for a Google Image or something and post it here. Once people have a picture of the building, they will probably be able to tell you what it is.

OR try describing it yourself and you may get a few people posting their own pics to try to guess what one you may be asking about.

I had the stressful task of escorting my cousin's children and several of their friends to see that movie. I was preoccupied with head counts ( :roll: ), so I didn't pay much attention. Besides, it's a true children's movie.

If you are referring to the building where the Falcon lived, it's the obscure Pishkin Building - obscure because it was digitally generated. The location shots around Central Park were real, and as I remember, terrific.

If you mean some other building, I don't know.

Yes, it is Pishkin Building (what a Russian name, BTW!) The problem was that I watched that movie in russian translation and so I wasn't sure about right spelling. Thanks, Zippy! Pretty nice tower, but I can't find it in Emporis data base. :( Is it standing at west or east side of Central Park? :idea: OK, I'll try search machines.

From google:
"The movie's major set piece takes place atop the fictional Pishkin Building" :( :cry: So, that building doesn't exist. :cry:

Production designer Bill Bryzeski created a wonderful Art Deco-inspired design for the Pishkin Building. We created the building in numerous shots taking place in Central Park, adding a multitude of sky and cloud paintings to fully realize the storybook sensibility of the film.
