What LA street is Massive Attack's music video for Unfinished Sympathy filmed on?

Googling for the answer will come up with Peico Avenue, but neither Google Maps, MapQuest, or Yahoo can find it. Of course, the video was from the early 90s, so maybe the street was renamed?

Do you mean Pico Ave?

According to this Italian site, yes.

I think that's Pico Blvd. It's mighty long though - 15 miles from the Santa Monica to Downtown - so to find the exact few blocks used in the video could be another story....

Is the video available online anywhere? I'd be curious to see it.

I deciphered the very blurry street signs in the video and matched up the streets with streets close to Pico...she starts on S New Hampshire, makes a left, crosses S Berendo, crosses S Catalina, and the video ends right before Dewey.

I downloaded the video from an eDonkey server, but if you really wanna see it, I put it on my site, electro. Email me for the url, it's about 40 megs.
