Remember HBO’s ’80s program opener, where an asteroid exploded over “HBO City” and turned into the network’s logo? (If so, or even if not, check out this behind the scenes look; it turns out there were hookers on the corner). Well, that’s basically what Williamsburg will look like today, when both Girls and Boardwalk Empire film there. (Minus the hookers on the corner — unless that whole Iowa thing didn’t work out for Hannah.)
Last time we checked in with Girls (not to be confused with “Brooklyn Girls”), the show was filming at Cafe Mogador in Williamsburg. Since then, Maude Apatow and Zachary Quinto (exuding a “Brooklyn bohemian vibe”) have made appearances on-set. The show will be back in the hood today from approximately 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., according to a flyer warning that parking will be obliterated in the area from North 4th Street to North 6th Street, between Bedford and Berry.
Meanwhile, Boardwalk Empire, which recently time-warped what’s left of the Rockaway boardwalk, will be filming interior scenes from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., with parking affected in the area from Metropolitan Ave. to North 4th Street, between Wythe and Berry.
Yesterday, ABC owned the neighborhood: Forever, the network’s show about a New Yorker who can’t figure out why he’s lived for 200 years (so, Winter’s Tale but maybe good?), filmed in the vicinity of Grand and Wythe, while Bluff, a cop drama produced by ABC Studios, filmed on Banker Street in Greenpoint.
