When the smell of horse shit blasted us in the face as we walked through the East Village today, we wondered whether Mayor De Blasio had given up the fight to ban horse and carriages. Turns out it was just ABC filming its upcoming TV show Forever.


The crew is set up along East Seventh Street between Avenues B and C, ready to shoot later this evening. Forever is about a 200-year-old man who works in a New York morgue trying to unlock “the answer to his own inexplicable immortality.” It stars Ioan Gruffudd, the British hot piece from Fantastic Four.
