“How to Make it in America” Rooftop Filming on Ludlow

Posted on: June 6th, 2011 at 10:12 am by

In a fairly quick turn of events, How to Make it in America already scored their rooftop for the final scene of the forthcoming second season.  Last week, we opened the floor to readers to submit potential locations as candidates, and were met with a flood of responses.  Film scouts moved swiftly in electing a loft-balcony combo at 90 Ludlow Street. Many thanks to our kickass readership for participating, and a shout-out to the production staff who invited us to be a part of the shoot!

The shoot transpired in the small hours of Friday night, after a full day of filming other various scenes around the neighborhood.  It all began as most of the bridge and tunnel revelers were departing the neighborhood for parts unknown.  Filming proper lasted until just after sunrise; then it was a wrap.  While we can’t divulge any spoilers, it was a key scene including the major players – Bryan Greenberg, Victor Rasuk, Kid Cudi, Finch Eddie Kaye Thomas.  Look for Boogie boys Elie and Dave somewhere in the background when it airs on HBO next fall.

Residents need only tolerate the long-running How to Make it in America presence for a little while longer.  The show is winding down its production for the season.
