This was the first season two episode to air. Overall it is episode 23.
Original air date: 09/27/1985
The episode starts out in the mountains of Bogota. Well, actually it is suppose to
be Bogota but this was actually filmed in Bear Mountain State Park. In New York State,
a little north of Manhattan.
They are taken by Henry Drummond, who works for the D.E.A to a cook shack in a clearing.
There a guy who works for the Revillas is being interrogated. They get some information
about a drug flight coming into South Florida but overall the meeting does not go
The exterior shots were filmed in a clearing in Bear Mountain State Park. The scene
inside the cook shack was filmed on a set at Greenwich Studios in Miami.
Then we see the opening montage. It changes slightly from the standard season one
opening montage in that the Flagship National Bank segment was cut and replaced with
the pan of the south entrance of the Dade County Courthouse.
After the opening montage we are back in Miami at the O.C.B. (Studio set). Crockett
is looking at a satellite picture of the Glades and the squad is talking over the
clue, Cross of Jesus/Christ’s Crossing.
Then we go to Christ Crossing. This does not look like the Christ’s crossing area
but it could have been filmed almost anywhere in or near the Glades. Location unknown.
Crockett’s hunch pays off. After a semi-successful raid we see the gang going to
celebrate. The exterior was filmed on location at 9449 Collins Ave. in Miami Beach.
At the time of filming it was The Palms. Now it is called The Beach House. Thanks
to DanJ for the use of his picture.
Then we go inside which looks like a studio set but I have not confirmed that yet.
Most likely a set.
After finding that Gina has been shot at the would be party, we go to the hospital.
This was filmed on location at Jackson memorial hospital.
Then we pay a visit to Newton windsor Blade, Crockett and Tubb’s credentials in New
York. This was filmed on the Touch Of Class docked at the Jockey Club Marina, 11111
Biscayne Blvd., Miami.
Next, we find our duo in NY,NY. We see a montage of N.Y. building scenery. It starts
with the Solow building at 9 West 57th Street.
This building is where Chandler Bing worked in the sitcom Friends, and Sex In The
City filmed restaurant scenes in the Brasserie 8.5 restaurant inside this building.

Then we are northbound on 6th Ave. Passing 1185 6th Ave. The shot continues, panning
down to end looking west down West 47th Street from 6th Ave.
Then there is a quick sequence of driving down a street past 5 intersections. I have
not sussed out these locations yet. Locations unknown. If you know where any of
these locations are, please let me know at email@example.com
Then we drive northbound on 6th Ave. past the X or Exxon building at West 50th Street.
