First Fidelity Bank's cathedral-like bank lobby at 135 South Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA was used for Duke & Duke Co.

The Dukes' mansion exterior shots were filmed at Mill Neck Manor, in Long Island NY. It's now used by the Millneck foundation as a base for various charities serving the deaf community. Their website is www.millneck.org.

Rittenhouse Square Park was where the Eddie Murphy's initial scene was filmed witht the two policemen. [Thanks to Jesper Glysing-Jense]

Jamie Lee Curtis' slum apartment was on South Street- the numbers on the door (I cannot recall) is the actual street address. [Thanks to Natasha]

The police station where Jamie Lee Curtis first meets Dan Akroyd is Community College of Philadelphia on Spring Garden Street. [Thanks to Andrea]

Independance National Park, PA was also used. Even the World Trade Center in NY was used for the trading scenes.

1500 Market Street is the backdrop for the scene where Aykroyd is crawling on his knees to the cab where Curtis is located. The giant clothespin in the background was done by Claes Oldenberg. [Thanks to Collin]

The bus where Winthorp ends up after the party is the 'C' bus that travels around City Hall, and is about 500 feet from where the "Duke and Duke" building (First Union Bank) is located. [Thanks to Collin]
