Early this morning on my way to work (7:30am) I walked by a film crew on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and 114th Street. Right across from Melba’s where something else was just filming a month ago, yet another film crew was setting up getting ready to film something today. Does anybody know what???
UPDATE: (At 4:30pm Thursday.) Thanks for writing in to us with the information of what is being filmed. Apparently they are filming an episode of Person Of Interest a TV series on Thursday nights at 9pm. (CBS)
A couple of our HCL readers said they saw the actor Jim Caviezel filming today also known for many other different roles such as My Private Idaho, Pay It Forward, The Passion of the Christ and Transit just to name a few.
Thank you for sending these photos to us at Harlem Condo Life. We really appreciate it! See more pics below of 113th Street and Frederick Douglass Boulevard in front of Harlem Food Bar. Looking forward to seeing Harlem as the background on season 2 of Person Of Interest.

Back in July, we told you about how the lead actors of Premium Rush, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) and Dania Ramirez (Entourage), were spotted filming in Harlem. They have been filming throughout the City (and a good portion in Harlem) most of the summer. Well, it looks like the cast of Premium Rush will be back again in Harlem filming…this Thursday. There were signs stapled over the weekend on every tree or taped to every pole along 110th Street, starting from Columbus Avenue all the way to Broadway. The red papered signs say Premium Rush will be filming from 11 AM to 11 PM on August 19th. Columbia Pictures gave locals five days notice. I wonder why?
So if you want to see some filming action and actors playing bike messengers at the base of Harlem, head on over there. But please, if a production assistant does not let you get close to the set, we encourage you to walk away and tell them to have a nice day. Take the high road and leave the violent altercations to those folks located you know where (wink, wink)!

If you’ve seen these two individuals in the photos below biking around Harlem, don’t hire them or give them a package to deliver. First,they are way too cute and second, these are actually the lead actors for Premium Rush, a film about a bike messenger who picks up a package at Columbia University. Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) and Dania Ramirez (“Heroes”) star in the film and have been on set in Harlem the past two days.
On Monday, they were filming along West 110th Street from Manhattan Ave to Amsterdam Avenue. Today, Tuesday, they were spotted at 145th Street and Broadway. I think it’s fair to say the director picked some hills that stretch far for biking scenes. Some of us have biked around Harlem and can attest our hills can give you a workout. I wonder if Joseph and Dania have experienced what we have?
Premium Rush is expected to be in theaters in 2011!
Ugly Betty is in the barrio, El Museo del Barrio that is, which is located at East 105th Street and Fifth Avenue. Fellow blogger Austin2Harlem tipped us off that the now cancelled TV show is taping one of their last episodes at the Latino cultural institution today! The cast and crew were onsite yesterday as well!
I am so bummed about the cancellation of this show. I am a fan! I really liked watching Betty Suarez, played by America Ferrera, even though the character is from Queens. Glad to know the cast and crew filmed in Spanish Harlem.
There is about eight episodes left to air. See the final season on Wednesday nights on Channel 7!
