The exterior staircase, though, was filmed at the Macondray Lane Stairs at 1801 Taylor Street at Green. Macondray Lane was Armistead Maupin's real-life inspiration for the book's fictional 28 Barbary Lane, which was described there as being located at "a narrow, wooded walkway off Leavenworth between Union and Filbert."
