Meet Me in Montauk: The Ultimate Eternal Sunshine Map

View as Map

Meet me in Montauk is what Clementine (Kate Winslet) whispers to Joel (Jim Carrey) as his last memory of her before their relationship is erased. In the ten years since the cult classic has been released, many of the settings of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind have changed too. Montauk's Plaza restaurant is no more; Clementine's grotty Williamsburg apartment has been torn down and replaced with a new glass building. The film itself is increasingly considered a classic. Now, for you: a map guide to Eternal Sunshine.
