What Walter Saw at 167 Cedar St.
Having lived in Worcester for 18 years and working there for the last 21 , it’s always fun when one of your favorite shows decides to locate one of their episodes in your town. The X-Files set a couple of their episodes in Worcester and now I think it’s at least two for Fringe.
In the last episode of Fringe, “Through The Looking Glass and What Walter Found There” our intrepid band of heroes were taken to 167 Cedar Street in Worcester. I’ve always wanted to search out Fringe locales and this one was just a few minutes away so why not go there and snap a few pictures for fun.
In the above picture is 167 Cedar as it was represented in the episode. A grand old apartment building gone to seed thanks to some ill placed light bombs from the Observers. Below is what I found at the real location.
Yep, that’s right, an empty parking lot. Darn! I wanted to at least run into that cranky lady that Walter had a couple of run ins with. No such luck. The house of worship in the background is actually on Russell st. that intersects Cedar near Elm Park.
Oh well, so much for my brush with the surreal. Maybe I should have entered one of the local churches. Who knows, I might have seen a Bishop or two!
