The melancholy gothic building the Dakota from “Rosemary’s Baby” and many other films is also a stage, as well as the apartment of banker-killer Patrick Bateman in “American Psycho.“Another notorious apartment featured is the Ansonia from the 90s erotic film series ‘Single White Female’. While many sets seen on the Upper West Side are apartments, the tour also includes walking past the New York Historical Society, from a scene from the 1981 Italian horror-mystery film “The House by the Cemetery”. The tour ends at the apartment complex featured in Hulu’s “Only Murders in the Building,” where three strangers’ obsession with a true-crime podcast became a reality.
