The Tudor City sequence was shot on the roof terrace of Windsor Tower's Penthouse 1, standing in for the terrace of the Godfather's Manhattan residence.
|The sequence opens with an establishing shot of Tudor City ‒|
No. 25 as seen from the viewpoint of Penthouse 1.
|The Godfather (Al Pacino) and his daughter (Sofia Coppola) |

|The Godfather denies it . . .|
|. . . swearing to her "the foundation is real, this is legitimate."|
|But both of them know he's lying. . .|
