As a New Yorker, it's fun to watch a show that was shot location here in the city.
The Amazon comedy series "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" does this - but the show is set in 1959, which creates a unique set of challenges for producers.
To learn more about how this works, I got to go for a walk with Amanda Foley, the Location Scout for the Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
The department store where Midge works at the beginning of the series was shot on 34th Street. The building looks the part, but they had to install fake shop windows into the alcoves, and remove the scaffolding which is almost everywhere in the city these days.
Other places in the city blend in more seamlessly like the 'Music Inn' instrument store on West 4th Street in Greenwich Village, which actually dates back to the 1950s.
Even the cigar shop next door fits in - they just had to cover up the Juul and the CBD signs.
Over in Alphabet City, Midge goes down into the subway in front of a bar by Tompkins Square Park. New Yorkers who know that neighborhood will realize that in real life, there is no subway entrance there - it was phony.
