Must Read

If you live on Orchard or Broome streets — or anywhere in the immediate vicinity — you can’t have missed the transformation on those blocks during the past week.

Tomorrow and Thursday, the new Cinemax series, “The Knick,” will be filming scenes on the Lower East Side.  The show, directed by Steven Soderbergh, is a period drama set in New York’s “Knickerbocker Hospital” in the year 1900. According to Cinemax, the 10-part series will focus on “the groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.” The show stars Clive Owen.

Many of the storefronts along Orchard between Delancey and Grand and on Broome between Ludlow and Allen have been changed over to “old-timey” shops in the past several days.  Production crews are stepping up the work today.  If you haven’t seen the signs keep in mind that cars will be towed from the area beginning at 7 tonight.  In addition to Orchard and Broome, the TV shoot is taking over parking on the following blocks: Ludlow (between Delancey and Grand), Allen (between Grand and Delancey) and Grand Street (between Eldridge and Pitt).  Some businesses will stay open through Thursday; others (such as Earnest Sewn) will be closed.
