Last edited Mon Mar 18, 2013, 02:09 AM - Edit history (1)

I recently found out that the crime lab is about a mile from where I live...

So, today, my husband and I drove over for a look, and some pics.

Behold:

The front entrance:


What it really is:


My husband on the steps:


Me too:



And a pic lifted from CSI's Facebook page:

1. I couldn't quite understand why the dumped the Miami one and kept the NYC version...

I can't say I was a major fan, but I did love the bright colors and atmosphere of the Miami CSI... The NYC one, by contrast, is so damned gloomy and dark.

Thanks for sharing... That looks like the spot to me.

5. I can't figure it out either...

I like the cast for both series, but the Miami folk are more real to me.

And this is most def the spot!

A lot of the Miami show was shot around the South Bay...esp. in Long Beach.

22. California doubling as Miami.

I understand why producers of the show chose to do it--probably saved them considerable money--but it was hard to take seriously the show as a Miami show where they didn't shoot locally (other than a few exterior shots). "Burn Notice" and "The Glades" both manage to shoot locally, so it can be done.

Now, had producers of "Homicide" or "The Wire" attempted to shoot in LA as opposed to Baltimore, that would have totally ruined those shows. One of the greatest things about those great shows were the authentic settings.

11. But my life is good! <~ It shows in your lovely smile.

At my age 10 pounds is the least of my worries.
I'm content with being a little fluffy.

7. It was fun finding it, my dear Tuesday Afternoon!

The Wikipedia article on the show was where I learned about the location.

Thanks for the kind words, sweetie!

4. There's something written on those blue and red jackets.

I think they say "CSI: Los Angeles"

17. I was curious about the show, so I looked it up on wikipedia...

And that was where I learned about the location of the crime lab!

And as they say, the rest was history!

my dear pinboy3niner!

18. Dimly lit mood lighting for a crime lab?

I am an electrician who often comes up with lighting solutions for customers. It irks me when these crime shows depict a laboratory with can lights and mood lighting. Lol

There is just no way scientific work can be done under those circumstances. I hate these shows because people start to believe some of the crazy scientific fiction that is used to catch a criminal in less than an hour. People believe these shows are real and doubt real sciences like global warming or evolution. Rant over! Whew...... lol

19. My dear Grantuspeace...

Your point is well taken! However, they never catch the criminal in less than an hour!

And parts of the lab (IIRC) are well lit.

I wonder about the equipment...is it at least based in reality?

23. I suspect that real CSI lab techs...

would die for the kind of equipment that Abbie and the CSI series have.

Maybe even kill for it.

20. Huh?

So, what you are saying that this building is not even in Miami? I assumed the whole thing was taped there. Oh well. I still miss it, anyway. Count me among those who wish they'd kept this one and let the CSI NYC go.

21. It's most definitely not in Miami! It exists about a mile from here!

And the interiors were shot in Raleigh Studios, here in Manhattan Beach.

Wikipedia is your friend!

I never saw it when it was on the air...Now, we're streaming it via Netflix. I love it!
