The Only Living Boy in New York is smitten by the Lower East Side. Again. The feature film returns to the area today for more filming activities, just a couple weeks after the last jaunt. As before, it’ll focus in Hell Square.

The production previously quartered at Ludlow Street, where the crew spent a week capturing scenes in the graffiti-filled backyard. This spot, of course, was more recently in the spotlight thanks to the Inutilious Retailer. The store itself is now the temporary home to a holiday pop-up shop by Dana Foley.

The Marc Webb-directed drama film stars Jeff Bridges, Kate Beckinsale, Logan Lerman, Callum Turner, and Kiersey Clemons. The plot follows a teenager who discovers his father is having an affair. He tracks the woman down to confront her, and winds up bedding her.
