It’s been four stressful, hectic and bitter cold months, but our film is finally wrapped and I’m heading off today for a much needed vacation. So there’ll be a bit of a hiatus til the next post…
…which I can’t resist at least mentioning now!
I just had the incredible opportunity of scouting a children’s camp that’s been abandoned for 15 years, complete with . . .

We were renting a Queens public school gym recently for holding and catering…
I was busy studying this apparatus (pull up bar?) and having horrible gym class flashbacks, when I noticed a padlock attached to it…

Hey everyone -
I’ll be on the radio program Seven Second Delay tonight (Wednesday) to talk about location scouting! The show starts at 6pm (I should be on at 6:30pm), and will be broadcast live on WFMU (91.9FM in NY/90.1 in the Hudson Valley). We’re taping at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre ($5 gets you a seat). More info here, live streaming here.
The show will be guest co-hosted by broadcasting legend Joe Franklin, which is pretty darn cool. It’s funny, I know he’s had a long and influential career, but I’ll always remember him first and foremost from his moment in the Ghostbusters montage.
And if you’re just finding Scouting NY for the first time, here’s a handy a list of my favorite posts from over two years of writing. Enjoy!

…and take the far-less trafficked 42nd Street door:
Once past the metal detector, hang a right down the first corridor…
…and continue on into the Children’s Center.
See that wooden partition in the center of the center of the room? Take a peek inside…
…and you’ll find the New York home of Winnie the Pooh (yes, the actual Winnie the Pooh!) and all his friends!
