It's Complicated (2009)

Last Updated: April 2010

When brought together at a family event, two exes Jane (Meryl Streep) and Jake (Alec Baldwin) find themselves oddly attracted to each other after ten years of divorce. Although the couple think that this affair will stay in a different state, it brings itself back to their own city and disrupts their personal lives. While the couple still maintain other romances, they cannot help but to continue with their affair.

otsoNY Comments: For the New York section of the story, in which the Adler family comes to the city for Luke's graduation, shoots took place on Park Avenue in midtown. For the hotel where the Adlers stay, the fictional Park Regent, several different locations contributed to the aggregate. The exterior was a Trump-owned residence building on Park Avenue and 59th Street. The lobby and Jane’s hotel room were in the Essex House and the hotel bar where the sparks fly btw Jane and Jake was the interior of the Del Posto restaurant on 10th Avenue. Several other locations, including Jake’s room, Jake and Agness’ Santa Barbara bedroom, as well as the fertility clinic, were shot on Brooklyn stages.

Jumeirah Essex House

The Jumeirah Essex House, formerly known as the Essex House, is a luxury hotel located on Central Park South in Manhattan. Built in 1931 as the Park Tower Hotel, it is situated across the street from the southern border of Central Park and is convenient to both the stylish shops on Fifth Avenue and the nightlife of both Broadway and the Upper West Side. The 43-story hotel has 515 Art Deco style rooms and an in-house spa, and it is immediately recognizable by its original red neon rooftop sign.
