'Boardwalk Empire' returns to the East Village tomorrow

You've probably seen these signs about "Boardwalk Empire" filming interior scenes around here tomorrow ... it will impact portions of 11th Street and 12th Street... and First Avenue and Second Avenue... (tow trucks arrive tonight at 10)

Last July, the HBO series filmed in part at John's of 12th Street ...

[EVG reader Han Shan]

The folks at John's confirmed that "Boardwalk Empire" would again be filming there, though they weren't aware of all the details just yet ...

Meanwhile, we also saw the filming signs outside EVG favorite DeRobertis on First Avenue...



...a seemingly perfect location for the show set in the 1920s-1930s ...



We asked someone at DeRobertis about this... while she agreed that their cafe would be be a great fit for the show, "Boardwalk Empire" would not be filming there... Perhaps another time...



And a bonus photo... a hallway in the building above DeRobertis... via Dave on 7th, who points out that the walls and ceiling are all pressed tin...

John's?
DeRoberti's?
Veniero's?

Just another Monday night in and around our beloved East 11th Street!

If Eva is working at DeRoberti's she's fun to talk to!
