    An interesting shot I saw posted on another group a couple of days ago. Which city are you in?

    (it's a film set) :-)

    I'm game:

    It's obviously Toronto; standing in as New York?

    And,... the film set is SUITS; just another guess. I've seen their sets around Toronto and seen their props.

    ...and I guess the garbage can is just floating there.

    I walked past that the other day. One of set crew said it was something called Beauty and the Beast? Maybe I misheard. Anyway, there was also a NYC-style newsstand and a pretzel cart.

    There is no such station on the 4 or 5, FWIW, and there was a fake street sign nearby saying Eastin with an i, for some reason.

    Suits takes passing off Toronto as New York to the edge of what's acceptable. They film throughout the Financial District and surrounding areas on occasion without blurring the background or changing any streetscape features beyond the newspaper boxes and taxis. The streets are clearly the streets of Toronto with our distinctive street lights. You can even see streetcar tracks in street scenes. They show panned shots of Scotia Plaza and the Bay-Adelaide Centre as the exterior of the New York office building where the law firm in the show is supposedly located.

    They pass off the Canada-Life Building as just another New York landmark. In a 30 second scene that's actually set in Toronto, they had to blur the background at King and Simcoe--they must have been concerned that it would confuse some people watching the show.
