“Can a Song Save Your Life” and “Person of Interest” Filming on the Lower East Side
Two big-budget productions are to film side-by-side today on the Lower East Side. Both have been in the neighborhood quite a bit of late.
First up is Can a Song Save Your Life? This feature film, starring Keira Knightley and Adam Levine, is set to occupy the intersection of Orchard and Stanton Street for the second day running. Don’t let those “no parking” signs confuse you. That “Untitled Carney Project” is the ambiguous name purposely written to throw off would-be paparazzi (John Carney is the director). That much is clear just by looking at the cablecast sign on the sidewalk.
On the same day, CBS crime drama Person of Interest will hog much of Essex Street, south to Broome and west to Ludlow. These guys were just in the neighborhood last week.
Have fun getting around the neighborhood today!
