Thanks to all of NYC tipsters! If you have any set pics, new, filming locations, or celeb sightings to share, let us know about it! Also, be sure to check out our Upcoming Locations Calendar above for more info!


  1. Just as infos:
    -Curb Your Enthusiasm has spots even on 68th btw Columbus and Broadway, and one of staff said Larry David was going to be on set WEDNESDAY, means today!
    -I think signs for Premium Rush around the History Museum are only for Thursday and Friday (this is what I red on the orange sign yesterday, walking by)

      • I think the 68th/Columbus location is for tomorrow, got 2 other tips about it… maybe signs says move cars today, film tomorrow?

        PR def. at museum today, there were several different signs, they will be there for the rest of the week.

  2. Would somebody let these NYC location gurus know that Oakdale/Sayville/Bayport/Patchogue & Ronkonkoma are less congested and can pass for Hamptons areas too. It’s only a short ride from the Nassau locations they use now.

  3. Saw JGL and the set! They’re around the museum of natural history-unit 2 is filming down by an entrance and unit 1 is filming on the sidewalk down the street!

  4. two questions does anyone know if emma stone, mila kunis and andy samberg are going to be at friends with benfits and if so what’s there trailers names?
    Also is larry going to be by 55 and 2nd
    btw if anyone knows what time both things are filming till it’d be greatly appriciated

  5. Does anyone know if GG will be filming there the whole day and also if PR will really be in the Naturaly History are for the rest of this week until Friday?

    • I passed by today, and it looks to be a closed set. They were filming interiors and there were some trucks and vans outside of the high school.

  6. Jeff R,

    Notify your local film commission with that locations suggestion. I do not know of any location scout/manager groups on the net or Facebook, but I am sure they likely exist. It is very thoughtful of you to do this too.

    Anybody seen Radioman on any sets lately ???


    • Went by the GG set. Trailers are on 56th Between 6th and 5th. They are in Harry Winston and the windows are blocked off so you can’t see inside. At 12:30 it seemed as if they were in there working, crowds standing around outside waiting.

      Sorry not sure on how long they are there for.

  7. I don’t if shes still there or staying there but i saw Eva Mendez leaving the Greenwich hotel the other day. I just came across this site, otherwise I would have written in earlier.

  8. Just as an FYI: The locations might be a bit late tonight – my friend is dragging me to see Dinner for Schmucks (is it any good?)

    Anyway, I just added a few locations for tomorrow in the calendar above (BB, Curb, Rubicon, FWB, etc) and Detachment is the same (thanks Katie) and PR is the same.

    Anything else I get I’ll try to tweet if I’m our late….

  9. hey guys! some people took a group picture with chace on August 4th. I was wondering if they could post it on this website so other people in the picture can get it!


  10. hey everyone! I was part of a group shot with chace crawford on august 4th/today! and since no one took my camera i was wondering if anyone could post it. it would mean so much to me i dont think you would know! please be generous and do so because i deff would for any of you. thanks again! please please post it if you have it and read this!

  11. Went by the Gossip Girl set today and watching these girls go crazy when they saw Chace Crawford was hilarious ! I mean, after all he’s not a really good actor and his character (boring Nate) is the least interesting on the show.
    But I’m glad I went there cause I got an autograph from Katie Cassidy. She’s the nicest girl ever.

  12. can someone please post up pics they had of chace crawford!! i was there but the pix on my camera got deleted i was sooo upset!!! he is SO hawt and nice! please email me if u do!! =)

  13. Friends with benefits filming at 48th street…thereabouts… 2:00 start time…thinking tomorrow is the last day of filming in NYC…
