Movie Sets

So another one of the perks of living in NYC is that there is always something filming somewhere. A couple of weeks ago I was walking home from work and walked down 27th street, a block down from my apartment. I wasn't really paying attention until I started to notice lots of unfamiliar things and started to question whether I was on the right street or not. It turns out I was on the right street but my street had been turned into a movie set taking place in the 1940's. HBO was getting ready to film their miniseries Mildred Pierce starring Kate Winslet. The whole block got turned into a scene from way back. They turned some empty lease space into a cute little café and travel agency. Saturday when they started filming the streets were full of antique cars and people dressed in period clothing. Most movie scenes are filmed inside and so even though you can see that something is being filmed you often can't see any of the set or the actors. This was really fun to watch because it was all outside. I didn't stay and wait to see Kate Winslet but just seeing the elaborate set was fun enough for me :)

On a completely different note, I passed Neal Caffrey from White Collar coming out of filming as I was coming back from lunch the other day. I was so excited because he's quite handsome and that's one of my favorite shows. Unfortunately there was no one to share my excitement with because apparently no one else watches White Collar :(


  1. Steve and I LOVE White Collar! Was he as cute in person? =)

  2. Oh he was just as cute! I was definitely grinning from ear to ear after I passed him :)
