The Warriors now find themselves in Orphans turf.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The encounter with The Orphans is shot on 45th Road in Queens. There is an elevated subway entrance at the end of the street very close to where this was shot. The detail on the roof and around the windows isn’t as white as it appeared in the movie.

Three Orphans look on from the rooftops.

This distinctive building is still here but is now a barber shop. There is a convenience store on the corner.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors march into the territory of The Orphans.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The buildings are still recognisable even though some of them have changed slightly.

The Orphans.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

There is a distinctive brick pattern on this building making it easy to spot.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Enter Mercy.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Here are the stairs that Mercy descends as she comes to tease The Warriors.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors, not afraid of The Orphans, march on without taking off their colours.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This building has changed quite a bit since filming.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

They continue to march down 45th Road past a building with an ornamental design above the door.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The distinctive building, and doorway, are still there.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Now, the filming shifts from Queens to Brooklyn.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This shot was taken on 62nd Street in Brooklyn, at the corner of 15th Avenue.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

In the next scene Mercy is walking down 15th Avenue, away from the corner with 62nd Street, going back the way she came.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The derelict building is still there and looks the same surprisingly.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The second encounter with The Orphans is back on 62nd Avenue.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

These buildings look slightly different but check out the roofline.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors flee the exploding car down 62nd Avenue towards New Utrecht Avenue Station.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The subway station is just around the corner…

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors run to New Utrecht Avenue station and run past this first two doors.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

These doors are boarded up today.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors enter the subway station.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Note that the detail above the doors is still there.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The camera then pans up and shows The Warriors running down the platform.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The railings have changed since the movie was filmed but otherwise looks familiar.

 

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

After escaping from The Orphans, The Warriors wind up at 96th Street station where they have to evade the cops.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This scene was actually shot at Hoyt-Schermerhorn in Brooklyn as it has two unused platforms which are often used by film companies.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Here is a shot of The Warriors escaping the cops above the track.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Here’s that same area as it looks today. There is now a police station in the corner.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Here is another shot in the subway station.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

There have been some structural changes since the movie was filmed but it still broadly looks the same.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Swan, Ajax, Cowboy and Snow exit 96th Street station.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Welcome to 72nd Street Station in Manhattan where this was actually filmed.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

They make it outside the subway station.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The entrance is still very striking and is very easy to spot.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors are greeted by The Baseball Furies who are stood across West 72nd Street next to Gray’s Papaya which is still there (and which I highly recommend after having hot dogs there!).

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

Note Gray’s Papaya on the right.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Furies chase The Warriors from the station.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This was actually shot from the back of the station building that The Warriors escaped from and they are now running down West 71st Street.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The filming location then changes to West 100th Street.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This shot is with our back to Riverside Drive. It still looks very much the same today as it did when the movie was filmed in 1978/9.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

From West 100th Street The Warriors enter the park past the Firemen’s memorial.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This area looks similar today.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors run past the memorial.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The memorial is not covered in graffiti today. It was September 11th on the day I visited this location which explains the flowers.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The guys then vault over some benches and into the park.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The wooden benches have now been replaced with concrete ones.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The chase continues into Riverside Park, very close to where the conclave scene was filmed.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This scene was filmed at the entrance to Riverside Park off of 97th Street.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

The Warriors then run through the park and split up.

The Warriors Movie Site - Filming Location

This spot wasn’t easy to find (it’s just to the north of where they entered the park) but look at the two trees on either side of the dirt track.
