In the movie, we see that the scene in which Pennywise talks to Georgie is on a street called Jackson Street. Does anyone know if the name Jackson Street was mentioned in the book?
I'm asking because: in real life, Stephen King got the idea for that scene while he walking by and looking at a drain on a street called Jackson Street in the city of Bangor, Maine (you can see more about that around 10:54 in the video below). So I'm just curious if the filmmakers got the idea to show Jackson Street based on something from the book, or based on knowing the trivia of where Stephen King was when he got the idea?
