Three Wise guys in Manchester: Castleberry, DeHaven and Blossom. - SCOTT ELMQUIST
  • Scott Elmquist
  • Three Wise guys in Manchester: Castleberry, DeHaven and Blossom.

As determined by the editors of "Richmond Noir,"Andrew Blossom, Brian Castleberry and Tom DeHaven

1. Hollywood Cemetery: Even on a sunny day the interplay of light and dark offers a visual tapestry reminiscent of expressionist noir films.

2. The Alleys of the Fan: Noir thrives on corridors down which desperate souls stumble.

3. Windsor Farms: Noir wouldn’t be noir without a neighborhood such as this, with big houses holding big secrets — somewhere for the rich to live and the poor to stumble across their crimes.

4. Manchester: Looming brick buildings, long shadows, and empty, windblown streets. Manchester provides a kind of noir ideal.

5. James River: You’ve got to have somewhere to dump the bodies.
