Mott Street Transformed to 1960s Greenwich Village for “Inside Llewyn Davis”
Mott Street was a veritable Twilight Zone of sorts thanks to the Coen Brothers and their new film Inside Llewyn Davis. Yesterday morning, the corner of Mott and Bleecker was transformed to replicate Greenwich Village of the 1960s. The set, which features classic cars galore, imported snow, and fictional subway entrance, will supposedly remain until the shoot wraps on Friday evening. At least according to the “no parking” flyers on site the last few days.

Needless to say, the gathering of cars had shutterbugs in a frenzy. Also note the temporary sign on Bleecker Street for the “Quality Metalsmith” business at 31 Varick Street.
