French Street

A block of “European” style three story storefronts, including an interior cafe set used as Luke’s in the television series ‘Gilmore Girls’. The second level exteriors consist of multiple shuttered French windows (some with wrought iron railings), and the third level has a mansard roofline with dormer windows. The most noted project shot on French Street was ‘Casablanca’ starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
