“Blue Bloods” Filming on the Lower East Side Today

Posted on: September 8th, 2011 at 10:19 am by

The marathon fall television season is nearly upon us, so expect plenty of filming from the major networks in the coming months.  Not much of a change from the summertime wrought with neighborhood shoots.  Here’s another to consider this misty morning – Blue Bloods is returning for more.

The CBS procedural police drama is no stranger to the Lower East Side, having filmed at various locations earlier this year.  Later today, though, production will commence in that little square space of real estate local blogs refer to as Hell Square.  “No parking signs” and other official announcements line the streets (Allen-Essex, East Houston-Rivington), as do plenty of orange traffic cones.  Judging by the sheer outreach, which actually began last weekend, it’ll be a busy day here in the neighborhood.

The hours between 9 and 12 am have been set aside for the filming.

Well, Avant Garde by MMC, as it’s now known, itself doubles as a “luxury vape lounge.” In fact, its tagline is “where vape meets art.” The grand […]

So it looks like the old Chase bank branch at 104 Delancey Street has morphed into a pseudo gallery space, albeit a temporary one. At least until the landlord can find a suitable tenant willing to foot the bill. We saw workers cleaning up the other night for a similar event. After two years of […]

Is this the Proper Way for Cops to Apprehend Teens? [UPDATED]

An eight-minute video surfaced online this week showing three teens being arrested by a gaggle of 7th Precinct officers on East Broadway.

What’s rather disturbing is the plainclothes cop who, for […]

100 Montaditos on Ludlow Street is Officially Kaput

For 100 Montaditos, it’s one culture, zero ways to do it. At least on on the battered upper section of Ludlow Street. When it came to the Lower East Side iteration, the Spanish-based fast casual chain was an epic fail and a perfect example of how evading the host community can hurt in the long run. […]
