New York on TV
WNYC has mapped four years of shooting location permits submitted to the New York's Mayor's Office by television companies. The map allows you to explore where your favorite New York based television shows have been filmed in the city.
TV Shooting Locations in New York is a hexbin map showing the most popular shooting locations in the city for TV shows. It also allows you to view where individual New York based programs have been shot.
The most popular shooting locations appear to be Midtown and Lower Manhattan. However Greenpoint, Long Island City and Astoria are all popular locations as well. If you use the drop-down menu at the top of the map you can see where individual television shows like to shoot. For example, The Good Wife seems to like Green Point and Long Island City locations, while The Americans is very fond of South Brooklyn.
