“Boardwalk Empire” Filming This Week at Pitt & Grand

Posted on: May 4th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

Boardwalk Empire is ready for another helping of the Lower East Side.  Even though the series takes place in prohibition-era Atlantic City, there are select scenes shot here in the Big Apple.  For instance, a money-shot glimpse of the Eldridge Street Synagogue last season, which was actually disguised as a Chicago house of worship in episode 10.

As a number of readers have pointed out, the HBO mob drama is filming near the corner of Pitt and Grand Streets for the remainder of the week.  Perhaps some under-the-bridge type scenes?  Send us your photos of Nucky Thompson!

Season 2 of Boardwalk Empire will likely air in the fall.
