‘The Knick’ is Filming Scenes for Season 2 in Little Italy Today

Posted March 24, 2015 at 10:00 am

Here comes The Knick, ready to transform another downtown neighborhood into a turn-of-the-century set. For the second season, the Cinemax show is shooting interior scenes today within the confines of Little Italy. The standard “no parking” laminates have demarcated the filming zone since last week. However, unlike the last time The Knick was in these parts, the […]

Posted August 4, 2014 at 10:00 am

Cinemax granted us access to a pre-screening of The Knick which premieres Friday, August 8 at 10pm. The press kit containing the screener came complete with our very own collector’s medicine box. Welcome to the circus, it says. First, a quick description from The Knick’s website: Set in downtown New York in 1900, ‘The Knick’ […]

See Orchard Street in Trailer for Steven Soderberg’s Cinemax Show ‘The Knick’ [VIDEO]

Posted June 20, 2014 at 6:03 am

For a week in November of last year, Cinemax monopolized Orchard Street, transforming the “museum block” into a turn-of-the-century set for The Knick. We saw dirt and horse-drawn carriages imported, storefronts masqueraded, and period-specific costumes. Now, more than six months later, a second, more rounded-out trailer for the freshman cable series is live. One brief […]

Cinemax Debuts First Teaser Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s ‘The Knick’

Posted March 11, 2014 at 6:00 am

Cinemax lifted the curtain on the first teaser trailer for their period drama, The Knick. There’s not really much to see in this preview, certainly living up to its designation as a tease.

Earnest Sewn Shutters Its Overpriced Denim Outpost at 90 Orchard Street

Posted January 21, 2014 at 6:06 am

Its temporary closure in November at the hands of The Knick was but a prelude. After a couple months of deep sales (still pricey as fuck), Earnest Sewn terminated its corner shop at 90 Orchard Street last week.

DOT Installs Updated Muni Meters on Orchard Street

Posted November 27, 2013 at 6:10 am

The three Muni Meters in the one-block radius of Orchard and Broome were removed just before production began on The Knick. Computer printouts at the outset had warned of this. After all, the street furniture was not exactly period specific to turn-of-the-century Lower East Side. Now that filming is complete, the city returned to re-install […]

A week of living in the fake past is now complete; it’s back to the reality of the “new” Lower East Side. That said, set takedown for The Knick is still underway, hitting a road bump due to Veterans Day observance. Over the weekend, however, saw the laborious task of scraping up the dirt that […]
