Hey! This ain't my station!

As I rounded the corner of 115th and Lex this morning, I ran right smack into a film crew shooting an action scene. I knew enough about film production (having been a producer for 22 years) to stay out of camera range as I worked my way over to the 116th subway stop.

Imagine my surprise to find that the #6 116th Street station had magically turned into "75 Avenue Queens & Brooklyn." Queens and Brooklyn? Sheesh!

Disregarding the weird movie sign, I descended the stairs into the station and went on my merry way. To neither Queens nor Brooklyn.

Weren't you afraid you might have ended up in, you know,

It's always cool to catch a glimpse of someone shooting a movie scene. I imagine that happens often in the Big Apple. It does here in Chitown too...even in the suburbs where I am.

At least you got what was going on. I bet there were a few who were totally confused by it.

You know, Bro, I never gave it a second thought. Hey, maybe I DID end up in Willoughby . . . (insert "Twilight Zone" music here).

Joy, I wish I'd had more time to find out what was being shot and if any famous people were around, but, hey - I was on my way to work! ;-)
