Gossip Girl Filming on Essex Street the Next Few Days

Posted on: October 4th, 2010 at 6:23 am by

It’s been a busy few weeks of movie production here on the Lower East Side.  Keanu Reeves visited the neighborhood a couple times with his generation Um crew, and indulged in some Sugar Sweet Sunshine; and the new James Gandolfini flick Violet & Daisy made a brief appearance. Now it’s time for some Gossip Girl.

Beginning today and continuing through Wednesday, Gossip Girl will be filming on Essex Street. Whether it’s camera and flower-toting tweens or seasoned paparazzi trying to score a shot, be prepared for the worst. Essex is roped off from East Houston south to Rivington, as is East Houston to Suffolk Street.

This latest shoot is mere days after the TV show wrapped filming up on Tenth Street and Avenue A in the East Village.
