The East Village neighborhood in Manhattan lies the home of Max (Joe Anderson) and Jude (Jim Sturgess). Filming also took place at the Museum of the City of New York in Manhattan. Some other spots in New York you can view in the film include Katz’s Deli on 205 E Houston St, Webster Hall on 125 E 11th St, as well as Rivington Street and Clinton Street.

The inspiration behind John Lennon’s “Dear Prudence” sign was based on Mia Farrow’s sister, Prudence, not wanting to leave where she was living in the quarters to live with other students. “Dear Prudence” also references Prudence’s fictional character not wanting to admit to her sexual orientation. Evan Rachel Wood and Jum Sturgess were informed that Ringo Starr was in town when the movie was released and he attended a screening and shared that he enjoyed the film.
