Her walking is mostly confined to the city's concrete-and-glass canyons, so the Tudor City sequence ‒ which opens in the verdant South Park ‒ provides some respite. The action then moves to the Tudor City Bridge. See our earlier post on the filming of this sequence, here, when the film was titled Best Day of My Life.
Above and below, Vivienne visits the South Park, looking very lush.
She goes to the bridge and ponders the East River. A woman passes by.
The woman speaks to her. "I saw a whale here once," she says enigmatically, gesturing toward the river. "Right there. Swimming. Big as a truck." Vivienne doesn't respond. "You don't believe me, do you?" the woman asks.Vivienne remains silent, and the woman edges away. Vivienne crosses the street, phones her manager and arranges a meeting downtown. Cut to next scene.
