As I have stated several times before, Back to the Future sparked this hobby of mine. I want to devote an entire post to this magical street, but that will have to wait. Busnell Ave in South Pasadena, CA is home to several classics including Back to the Future and Old School. The house that was used in Old School is literally directly across the street from where I am sitting in the picture above. In fact, I have a funny story to share about that Old School house.
For now, enjoy one of the most memorable moments of BTTF 1 when George M. has his bino's (see what I did there) and is peeping out his future wife changing in the window. Marty quickly follows his dad from the diner and runs frantically onto this street.
George falls from the branch and Marty rushes the street pushing him out of the way. Marty gets hit with the car instead of George. Then there's the Calvin Klein confusion and bragging about owning two televisions. Until next time, Bushnell awaits.
