“How to Make it in America” Scouting Neighborhood Rooftops

Posted on: May 31st, 2011 at 6:28 am by

How to Make it in America is reportedly nearing the end of its most recent Lower East Side occupation; the HBO series has been filming in the neighborhood for the better part of three months. Now producers are scouting locations to shoot the final scene of Season 2, but are coming up empty-handed. The location manager sent us the following note asking for tips or suggestions.

Rather than reply, we decided to crowdsource an answer from you the readers.

Generically speaking, I am looking to find a great loft and a great roof, in the same building for the final scene of the Season 2 of How To Make It In America.

The director and the producers want to end the season with a super cool location in Chinatown, LES.

Drop us a line if you have suggestions, and we’ll pass along word.
