We went and checked out the filming of Rescue Me this morning since we saw the notices along 116th Street over the weekend. The crew were filming right at the intersection of 116th Street & St. Nicholas & Adam Clayton Powell.
Here are a few pictures from the site. We believe we have Denis Leary in one of the photos below! If that’s not him, it certainly looked like him!

As I continue to settle into my new Harlem life, I’m constantly amazed at the amount of TV and film production I see in the neighborhood. Walking along 116th near Adam Clayton Powell today, I spotted another upcoming shoot…this time for the FX Network show Rescue Me. On top of the wonderful diversity of restaurants, nightspots, and people, this is just another thing that makes me happy to call Harlem my new home.

Lights, Camera, Action – Filming in Harlem

Orange parking cones lined up along the curb are a dead giveaway that something entertainment wise is happening in “the hood.” On Sunday, October 12 walking through Morningside Heights park there were permits and official letters from Sesame Workshop and the New York City Mayor’s Office for Film, Theater&Broadcasting saying film crews will be out in full force Monday, October 13 on Manhattan Avenue from 108th – 113th filming The Electric Company. This is exciting stuff! Even though I am an adult blogger, I may get up early to go see Big Bird or maybe get Miss Piggy’s autograph!  Are those characters still around?  Someone tell Harlemcondolife the latest on Sesame Workshop characters?
