A movie shoot on Saturday morning turned back time on 77th street and Central Park West. The movie Wonderstruck has been shooting in various parts of the city this week, and is aiming to bring back some of the 1970’s Upper West Side vibe.
Here’s a description of Wonderstruck, starring Julianne Moore.
“Wonderstruck follows the intertwined narratives of two deaf children, Ben and Rose. Ben lives with his family in Minnesota in 1977, and runs off to New York following his mother’s death when a mysterious note shows up. Rose, who is locked in a house in 1927 New Jersey, also escapes to New York to see her idol, film actress Lillian Mayhew.”
The movie has also been filming in Crown Heights.
