Great pics. It's nice to see it from another perspective! Is this your house, a friends house, or what? I'd be curious to know what the typical noise levels are like, and if the Halloween Horror nights increase it, since many screaming people are going through that area.
It's a public street view. When I was taking pictures I could hear the engine spinning on the War of the World's set and the occasional tram engine. I'm sure residents do hear much of the Halloween Horror Nights stuff!!
I would be so excited living near Universal's backlot from that vantage point =)
With massive crowds at Universal Studios now, the backlot tram actually runs into the night now, especially on the weekends. They actually stop the line 2 hours after the printed time. Last weekend I got in line by 8:20pm, waited in line for about 60mins, and by near 9:30pm, I got on the tram tour =). It was night fall, and I have to say, it was really fun seeing the whole back-lot at night. By the time the tram rolled to the end, and we guests stepped off, it was about 10:30pm. The sets are just lighted by spotlights, Little Europe was really creepy, Jaws at night was great, and seeing the Bates Motel sign and the Bates home all by itself at night just gives that extra realism unlike during Halloween Nights.
Hmmm, you'll have to let me know what street! I'd love to see this view for myself.
It's 'Blair Dr,' the main road that you want to catch to get to Blair Dr is Barham Blvd off Buddy Holly Dr.
Once on Barham Blvd,
Make a Left on De Witt Dr, stay on De Witt Dr till...
You hit Troy Dr, make a right!
Stay on Troy and boom, you hit a t-intersection and you hit blair Dr. At this point, you will see Universal's back-lot, and at this area, your at the top of the hill, over looking the War of the World's & The Lost World: Jurassic park sets (or what the pictures above were taken).
Hope that helps =)

Hi, I'm new here and I love Pirates of the Caribbean and Johnny Depp and I would like to try and see something of Pirates' filming in LA. And these pictures at Falls Lake are from the set that will be used for Pirates of the Caribbean 4.So, anyone know any information about it, if that backlot is inaccessible to the public who wants to try to see up close the filming?
I dont know what the filming schedule is like.. I've never actually witnessed a living person on this Falls Lake set, crew or otherwise.. so who knows what their schedule is?! I was there today, and theyve got some big stuff in there. There's a huge crane in front of the backdrop, and some very large weird looking piece of equipment on the opposite end from the backdrop. I'll try to get a picture up tomorrow sometime.
Thank you very much http://www.johnnydepp-zone.com/board...s/thankyou.gifSpaceMountain1974. I'll be waiting anxiously for news.:)
Thank you again,
I posted an updated photo from 2 days ago on my blog. They got a huge crane in there and some water. You can see it here: Pirates of the Caribbean #4 set at Falls lake - Nothing Dies With Blue Skies
