Going the Distance to film on Delancey

So far this summer, the Lower East Side has been wrought with a bevy of film shoots – Step Up 3D, Date Night, Gossip Girl, and Get Him to the Greek – each exploiting our neighborhood, blocking streets, and restricting sidewalk access.  Mass inconvenience.  Well, it’s time to add another production to that list.  On Sunday afternoon, the northern sliver of Delancey between Chrystie and Bowery will become a set for Going the Distance, a romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long.  Our best guess is a scene that somehow incorporates the Bowery Ballroom.

Last week, Drew Barrymore was filming inside Daily News headquarters where she played an intern.  Per the article:

“Barrymore plays an intern at the fictional New York Sentinel in the upcoming movie “Going the Distance.” Her character dreams of being hired by the San Francisco Chronicle so she can be closer to her boyfriend.”

Blah Blah Blah.  Snooze.
