If you’re not tripping over celebrities in every nook and cranny in NYC you’re not trying. There has been a big increase in the number of films and TV’s shows now being filmed in NYC.
If you go to this website Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting you will see tons of information on what’s being filmed in NYC, and how to get trained for a job in the NYC Entertainment Industry and other useful info.
For your info Boardwalk Empire, True Story, Blue Bloods, Law & Order SVU, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Elementary are all currently filming in NYC.
It’s huge source of employment for New Yorkers with 130,00o employed in the film industry here, 275,000 employed in the media industry which takes in all the Tv productions and 25,000 employed in the digital industry.
All that info is taken from a great current report by the Boston Consulting Group which you can download from the website listed above.
No wonder we see so many Celebs!
Shout out to the NYC Admin for helping all this along by making it easier for films and TV shows to be filmed here so both have prospered while the film and TV industry has slowed in other parts of the US. Love seeing Celebs in NYC? COMMENT. LIKE having a good gawk when you see celebs around the town.
