A week of living in the fake past is now complete; it’s back to the reality of the “new” Lower East Side.

Over the weekend, however, saw the laborious task of scraping up the dirt that had been imported for the film shoot.
The first round of sweeping came courtesy of the private contractors of the crew; city sanitation workers finished the job on Saturday.
Meanwhile, a couple of storefronts weren’t as quick to fleece their faux facades.
