For the better part of yesterday, film crews were stationed on Rivington for filming of Get Him to the Greek (Russel Brand, Jonah Hill).  Most of the scenes were shot inside the Hotel on Rivington on the upper floors (the twentieth we were told), and by nightfall, twin beams could be seen shooting through the glass.  Finally, at around 11:30 pm, cast and crew moved outside to Kebab House II at the corner of Orchard Street.
