Filming and Filming

Hot on the heels of filming Jonathan on East 3rd Street, more filmmakers are filming more films in the East Village!

Except this is not a movie, it's a TV show — and it's not called Jonathan, it's called The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel!

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel sign.

This next picture will come as a surprise to East Villagers, because it's a bar scene being filmed not at the beloved Vazac's!

The bar beneath the black tarp is the beloved Josie's Bar, on East 6th Street, famous for having a statue of a bear in front of it, that you can't see because of the black tarp!

But fear not, Vazac's has not been ignored! It's just been rebranded as Milston's Tavern:

Here is a close-up:


And for added effect, they built a subway entrance right outside!

In real life, there couldn't be a subway station there — the East Village was built on a swamp!

  1. having the Avenue B subway station outside of milston's is really handy. you can take the crosstown 7th street line to 2nd avenue, where you can then transfer to the East 9th Street stop, and then head uptown or downtown, as you wish.
