The Philip Roth book “The Plot Against America” is being turned into an HBO miniseries with executive producers David Simon and Ed Burns, and they’re shooting on the Upper West Side on Thursday. Kate Hinds took the photo above on Central Park West between 81st and 82nd Street.
The book imagined an alternate history where Charles Lindbergh — known both for his aviation exploits and his fear-mongering about the influence of “the Jewish race” — beats Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1940 presidential election.
The show stars Winona Ryder, Zoe Kazan and John Turturro, according to HBO.
Roth, who died last year, spent several years living on the Upper West Side.
