Harlem plays a role in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

“The Amazing Spider-Man” movie opens today. If you’re planning on seeing the film you just might recognize our Harlem in the background. The New York Daily News has an article in today’s (July 3) paper highlighting the various areas of NYC that were used in the film. And one of those areas is West Harlem! This site caught up with the filming in Harlem last year, which was happening under the viaduct near Fairway.

This new film to the Spider-Man franchise looks pretty exciting based on the trailers. I plan on going to the movies to watch it. How about you? Are you going to go watch “The Amazing Spider-Man?”

Watch Harlem in Lady Gaga’s ‘Marry the Night’ music video

Lady Gaga has premiered her latest music video, “Marry The Night,” and Harlem plays a part.  Watch the video. I believe she is dancing right by Fairway! Similar to the next Spiderman movie, she choose under the Viaduct in West Harlem to dance the night way in her latest music video. What is it with that part of Harlem that the entertainment industry keeps using in their films or video? I guess those high arched steel beams photograph well. See the video for yourself by clicking on the picture below!

“Look out! Here comes the Spiderman! Can he swing from a thread. Take a look overhead (or in this video). Hey, there goes the Spiderman [in Harlem],”
See the coolest video of Spiderman, or shall we say the stunt person who plays him in film, swinging under the viaduct in West Harlem, i.e. West 133rd and 12th Avenue.
The Spiderman film crew was spotted in West Harlem May 3rd and we hear the film crew might be in the same area tonight, May 5th!
