Was this photograph taken yesterday on the set of Steven Soderbergh’s new mini-series The Knick, or was it taken back in the 1910s? The answer is at the bottom of this blog post!
This week, a little stage magic is manifesting in the Lower East Side. The Broome Street of 2013 has been turned briefly into the Broome Street of 1910! Steven Soderbergh has been shooting his new mini-series The Knick in New York this week, a tale of old Knickerbocker Hospital set over a century ago. This required the boutique-and-lounge strewn Broome be reverted to its days of immigrants, wagons and pushcarts.
Tom wandered through the set last night and took these photographs:
Hay, it’s one of the Bowery Boys!
Interestingly,. there’s an actual Stag’s Head up on 51st Street!
