Distinctive windows on the building across the street area visible.

A view out the second-to-left window on the Ewa (West) wall of the apartment.

The flat is revealed to be a corner unit with windows of single-pane width. Also, considering perspective foreshortening, this scene shows that the window at right is much closer to the corner than the window at left. Note the blue and peach roofline visible at the bottom of the right window.

Several area buildings have the same decorative windows, but these along Smith St. above the Hawaiian Heritage Center across from Amy's Place are the only ones that are correctly spaced, as well as being across from a second story corner unit with single-pane windows. Note the matching wear on the second window from the right. You can also see this building from the 2x08 Collision comparison photo for the Eternal Tattoo Alley.

A rare sample sale by the current tenants, the atelier Fighting Eel.
Standing at the corner in front of Amy's Place, the blue and peach roof line of the building across the street is visible through window in the screencap in the window behind the paintings. This detail was a yet another confirming clue that this location was correctly identified.

(Also, at the left edge, the Jos. P. Mendoça '1901' Building is one of several Chinatown buildings that are "red herrings"-- its windows have the correct decorative pattern, but there is no appropriate second story location to match the screencaps.)
