Even TV Shows Like ‘Blue Bloods’ Prefer Pre-Cemusa Newsstands

Since its debut five years ago, popular CBS series Blue Bloods has made a habit of filming on the streets of the Lower East Side. Locals have become accustomed to constant film shoots (and Donnie Wahlberg) each season. Today and tomorrow, you can expect production activities quartered on Monroe Street between Pike and Market.
For the shoot, CBS constructed a pre-Cemusa newsstand as part of the backdrop. It’s currently situated mid-block behind the baseball field, sheathed in plastic garbage bags.
Funny. Even the television shows seem to prefer the presence of these old-school newsstands to the Cemusa eyesores. The gritty city tale as Hollywood still sees it barely exists anymore, so producers are forced to import an impostor.
