A White Collar Followup of the Lower East Side

Posted on: December 1st, 2009 at 6:36 am by

It was only a matter of time before all the neighborhood filming for USA Networks’ White Collar finally premiered on the small screen. Episode number six (“All In”), which aired this past Friday, was focused in “the seedy underbelly of New York’s Chinatown.”  The protagonists are in pursuit of villains through their high-stakes games of Pai Gow poker.  All this while navigating the busy streets of the Lower East Side.  Here are screen-grabs of the more easily-recognizable street scenes:
