Don’t get your hopes up; that’s not a real antiques store at the northeast corner of Suffolk and Stanton Streets. We’re told that Abe’s Antiques is simply masquerading as a retail setting for the upcoming ABC television series Forever. Apparently the filming crews will return to number 154 later this week to capture more scenes.

For the last few days, signage for Abe’s Antiques has obstructed the longstanding lettering of onetime haberdasher Louis Zuflacht. Hopefully it remains intact after the production is complete.

154 Stanton Street is home to the Smart Clothes Gallery.

Meanwhile, a reader tells us that Forever continues to scout the Lower East Side for filming locations. In particular, they’re looking for “empty or sparsely-furnished apartments.”

Forever is a sci-fi drama that follows the life of Dr. Henry Morgan, a 200-year-old man who spends eternity trying to find a way to reverse his immortality. Matt Miller (Chuck) is penning the pilot script. Veteran actor Judd Hirsch joined the cast last spring. The show will premiere on ABC September 23, with a sneak peek the night before.
