For the second Monday in a row, Judd Apatow’s latest feature comedy – Trainwreck – will headquarter on the Lower East Side. And in the same spot, too.

Will the Mysterious Naked Girls Return to the Set of Jason Sudeikis’ ‘Sleeping with Other People’ Today?

Posted July 7, 2014 at 10:08 am

Things got interesting in Hell Square a couple weeks ago during filming of Sleeping with Other People. There was nudity, and co-stars Jason Sudeikis and Margarita Levieva were reportedly “dumbfounded,” at least according to Page Six. That’s what happens when two naked ladies waltz onto the set, then proceed to grab a slice at La Margarita on […]

Posted June 25, 2014 at 11:11 am

Back in the ’60s, there was a peculiar figure best known for hanging out on 6th Avenue and 54th Street. Dude dressed as a viking and he sold his music and poetry to those pounding the NYC pavement. This legend was Moondog. Film director/producer Holly Elson has worked painstakingly hard the last two years on […]

See Orchard Street in Trailer for Steven Soderberg’s Cinemax Show ‘The Knick’ [VIDEO]

Posted June 20, 2014 at 6:03 am

For a week in November of last year, Cinemax monopolized Orchard Street, transforming the “museum block” into a turn-of-the-century set for The Knick. We saw dirt and horse-drawn carriages imported, storefronts masqueraded, and period-specific costumes. Now, more than six months later, a second, more rounded-out trailer for the freshman cable series is live. One brief […]
