Below are photos from Franklin Avenue, including Whistles, where an early scene in Welcome to Scranton takes place. Whistles was a favorite hangout for Hank, Ed, Jake, and Mike. Sadly, Whistle's closed in 2010 before the publication of Welcome to Scranton. One claim to fame the bar-restaurant had was in 2008 when then presidential candidate Obama stopped in at Whistles and shot some pool.
