Moonstruck - Grand Ticino

In Moonstruck, the Grand Ticino is the Brooklyn restaurant where Johnny Cammareri proposed to Loretta Castorini. There was a real restaurant called the Grand Ticino, which was located in Manhattan but is now closed.

 

This location is depicting the intersection of Cranberry & Hicks Streets in Brooklyn Heights, but is actually in Manhattan (see photo elsewhere in this set). The "restaurant" is at the northwest corner. Interestingly, the sign above that says Hicks Street is not correct; that is Cranberry Street, running generally east-west and Hicks is actually the street the bicycle rider is on, running north-south.
