The house from A Nightmare on Elm St.

Freddy Krueger House from A Nightmare on Elm Street

Easy spot. Just south of Sunset. Pretty street.

[CS, 06/01/2015]

Hollywood's stand-in for the neighborhood in fictional Springwood, Ohio. The street name was changed for the 1984 movie, so we don't refer to Wes Craven's (and New Line Cinema's) wildly successful slasher horror franchise as "A Nightmare on North Genesee Avenue."
