The Dakota in New York City, New York

This is one of the most famous buildings in all of New York City, with its gargoyle statues ever watchful over all that goes on below. In Roman Polanskiโ€™s masterpiece of horror, it is the place where Satan impregnates the titular character with his demon seed and all of the inhabitants of the building do his bidding.

Not only is this the creepy, Gothic structure where Mia Farrow is terrorized by her neighbors, but in real life it is the place where John Lennon lived and was, ultimately, shot to death.
