Take a Night Walk

Back in the 1980's, if you ever fell asleep in front of the television while watching Global TV, the odds were pretty high you would wake up a couple of hours later and find yourself staring at the strangely-hypnotic, dialogue-free Night Walk. Night Walk consisted of a cameraman just ... walking around downtown. At night. Obviously dreamed up as an easy and cheap way to get around the Canadian-content requirement, Night Walk attained cult status. Show-watching parties were common, and the smooth-jazz score, with its Kenny-G-style sax solos, was an underground hit. Take a slow, sexy walk back to the 1980's; how many of the locations can you identify?
