Fate of the Furious Ending Scene

I was watching the ending scene where everyone is hanging out of the rooftop. As the camera pulled away from the actors I noticed something strange. The focal length of the camera was changed as the camera pulled away.

 I decided to figure out where that was.

I knew it was in New York City somewhere because of the establishing shots. After watching the sweeping shots in and out of the picnic scene and looking for visual clues, I found it:
767 10th Ave, New York, NY 10019

 It's the building wherein resides Sonny's Groceries.
 


I wish I would have captured some images from the DVD but the library wanted it back. Before that, however, I matched up my view from Google Earth to fit the frame as best matches it in the movie. 

You will have to watch it yourself to see how well I did.

The whole city is a CG model and that rooftop is a fiction. Also, the tall building behind the one in the scene was made much shorter or removed altogether so the twin Clinton Manor buildings behind could be seen.

Oh, wait! I found the whole scene on YouTube! See how this looks as it pulls away:


 And a capture from that clip:
