The location of the photo shot is definitely LA. I would say some side street looking from just below the intersection to the part north of 3rd between Orlando and Crescent Heights.
|Shot is foreground shortened, and stop signs after the signal. Mix of Canary Island and Mexican Fan palms puts it between 3rd and Melrose. Use of old electric lines may make it even further east than La Brea.|
This is the North Shore of Long Island (the pretty part) - note lack of Palm Trees of any type.
