As the title suggests, I'm looking for a picture of the neighbourhood around the PE building, preferably from above. Failing that, is there any episode/movie I should be consulting that'll give me a good view of that area? (The reason being, I'd like to know more about the lot across the street from PE.)

Bender's Game has a shot were it comes down from orbit to show the area around the PE building when Mom is trying to find the crystal.

I think they mentioned it in the BG commentary actually. They claim that the PE building is located where the naval yard is now. Which is kinda what I always figured based on the establishing shots from the original series.

According to data garnered from Bender's Game, Planet Express appears to be located on the corner of Henry Hudson Parkway and West 57th Street.

The owl sequence at the beginning of BBS should be helpful

Not exactly next to the naval yard (that's in Brooklyn, and it's decommissioned) but the NYC Cruise Ship Terminal in northern edge of the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood.

Actually a hundred feet or so above it though, since the 31st Century city is, like FF7's Midgar, built on a plate suspended above the ruins of the old city for some reason... probably elevated sea levels or something.

That'll be because of all those ice-cubes they keep dumping in there.

It wasn't very successful and went out of business a few days after it opened.

You're welcome! (I guess) smile   Didn't quite mean for it to turn out this way, but hey, why not?

To everyone that's posted since I last did: thank you loads. This is all very helpful stuff. Special thanks to futz for the pictures. Those are going to be very useful as reference material for a fic I'm considering writing. (Of course, there's the matter of getting around to it... roll eyes)
