Blue Jasmine Filming Locations – San Francisco, New York, Nyack

Blue Jasmine saw Allen return to America after another stint abroad, but he surprised his audience by not returning to New York – at least not fully. Allen announced that the film would be made in San Francisco, where he made his very first film Take The Money And Run (1969). Although some scenes would feature New York.

Since Annie Hall in 1977, which featured some LA, Allen has never shot in America outside of his immediate surrounds of New York (and New Jersey). But Allen has said that San Francisco is a city he loves very much. But there are no doubt financial reasons as well – Allen only leaves New York because it’s cheaper to do so.

For San Francisco, Allen departs from his postcard prettiness of portraying a city. In fact, he avoids the city’s landmarks on the whole. Golden Gate Bridge is in the background, and a scene with iconic trams was cut.

Of course, part of the story takes place in high society New York and large beach houses in Nyack.

Here’s the filming locations for Blue Jasmine. Some we don’t know at the end of the post.

  1. Its been said that having money and then losing it, is worse than never having any money at all. This maxim is very poignant in this film. Woody hit the nail right square on the head with this piece. Jasmine was really at a loss without her fancy possessions and fancy friends. In her dogged determination to hold on to these “things” that provided her emotional gratification and earthly sustenance she lost her way. With the onset of social media you can see potential “Jasmines” all around. Women (and certainly men too) validating their existence by owning the latest $2000 this or the latest $2000 that. Its Barnum & Bailey Beverly Hills materialism and consumption overload. There was an interesting article on the website Jezebel a few years ago which brought up the idea that young women are seeking gratification not by trying to achieve things in the real world, but that they were trying to live up to the “Kardashian Lifestyle” and the materialistic escapist world that social media has provided for so many. In other words, for example they were less inclined to want to go to law school and get a law degree, but instead they would rather use that money to acquire a couple of $10,000 outfits from Neiman Marcus. Anyway, it was an interesting article. Maybe Jasmine, on her way up, should have taken some advice from Ray and French Fox on their way down. To keep a level head, everyone, every once in a while needs to recalibrate – by washing their hands clean in the finger bowls. Clean fingers being the metaphor for clean minds. No matter how many chicken chips cookies you eat or how many “Top Louie’s” you have hanging on the wall, at the end of day Ray just wanted a good cheeseburger. The most important thing, is to go through life with acceptance, forgiveness, and love!!!

    GO WOODY!!!!
