Last modified December 8, 2016 at 7:26 am

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, Bret (present) and Jemaine (present), but there won’t be any more band meetings with Murray at 232 East Broadway. Yup, your (fictitious) New Zealand Consulate (in HBO’s beloved cult series “Flight of The Conchords“) will soon be razed. You’ll need to find a new location for those Flight of […]

The shoot is happening today, right in the heart of it, from Allen to Essex between Delancey and East Houston. So, expect clogged streets, for sure. The husband-and-wife team of Nick Stoller (Neighbors, […]

Rather, the new Pierce Brosnan movie currently in production (from which it was inspired), and parked in and around Hell Square all week. Mainly at 151 Ludlow Street.
