nope... filmed on 11th street off of bridge. You are "indeed" incorrect.
WRONG. The scene(s) from Charlene's apartment were definitely filmed on a street in the Highlands. 11th street off the bridge is in Centralville and it was Not filmed there. The scenes w/ the sisters ganging up on Charlene on her porch were filmed on a house in the highlands most definitely in the Tyler Park vicinity. YOU are indeed incorrect.

Does anyone know what street Charlene's apartment/house is on?
Looks like Christian Hill because of the vantage point and the backdrop.

No, that's Not Stevens Street. The Eklunds/Wards Did live for many years on Stevens Street but Charlene's house was Not filmed on Stevens Street. In the movie one of the sisters did say re: Charlene "...she lives on Stevens Street!" before they all jumped in the car to drive over to confront her. But Stevens Street is Not what it used to be, sad to say, and the traffic is much too heavy to have filmed that scene on it. This particular scene was indeed filmed on a street over near Tyler Park - it was Definitely not Stevens Street.
It has to be somewhere on Christian Hill because of the vantage point.

I think the crack house is on Smith Street with the old fire station at the bottom of the street where it intersects Middlesex. I lived there growing up.

well than ... it was "indeed" Not filmed on Stevens Street - which was the main point this commentator was trying to make.
Wow! I didn't realize this was such a serious topic!! didn't intend to offend.. just to clear up some confusion.

okaaaaaaaaaay, I am aware of where 11th street is, it ascends right up christian hill - you should check out the view sometime, it might look familiar :)

What you don't seem to understand is that just because the scene is set in the highlands doesn't meant that it was actually filmed there... oh the wonders of Hollywood!

Anyway, I don't really see the point in debating this, it really makes no difference. Clearly you were looking to get a response out of me so I hope you are satisfied. If you are still bothered I suggest you do your research... good luck!
