Gossip Girl Overtakes Angel Orensanz
The CW and its annoyingly lucrative Gossip Girl franchise are currently occupying the Angel Orensanz synagogue/event hall at 172 Norfolk Street. Holding for the shoot is further north on Avenue A, but the set is located inside this Lower East Side institution. Today is the second consecutive day of filming in the neighborhood. Twitter fans indicate that there will be some production alternation between 10002 and Silvercup Studios in Long Island City.
The photo below shows the scene yesterday afternoon outside Angel Orensanz. A group of teeny-boppers sat against the fence of ABC Playground, camera in hand, waiting to see their idols.
Fun fact: Angel Orensanz is the oldest surviving synagogue building in New York, built in 1849.
