Due to the pandemic, the release of "In the Heights"—the movie adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's award-winning musical—was pushed back an entire year.
Now the film, centered around the story of a young bodega owner in Washington Heights, is set to hit theaters—and stream on HBOMax—on June 18, 2021.
In the meantime, there's also a brand new trailer, offering more glimpses of Miranda as a bearded piragua vendor, Jimmy Smits dancing—as well as the many real uptown locations used in the film.
Need a little help pinning them down? Here's a starter list, from south to north:
Overlook in J. Hood Wright Park
Between W 173rd and W 176th Sts from Ft. Washington to Haven Aves
Bodega owner Usnavi's best friend shares a romantic moment with his girlfriend on this overlook in J. Hood Wright Park, with stunning views of the George Washington Bridge.
Amsterdam Ave and W 173rd St
This 1930's-era pool in Highbridge Park is the setting for a musical sequence with lots of old-fashioned cinematic splashing.
The intersection in front of Usnavi's bodega
Audubon Ave and 175th St
A lot of the action—including what looks to be a big dance number—takes place in this intersection in front of Usnavi's fictional bodega, City Mart Tropical Products Deli.
191st Street between Broadway and St. Nicholas Ave
Dancers take over this graffiti-covered tunnel connecting Broadway with the 191st station on the 1 subway line.
