The Godfather of Harlem is a crime drama set in 1960s New York. It’s about a gangster named Bumpy Johnson and is a TV prequel to the 2007 film, “American Gangster'.”

Looks like they are wrapping up from this mornings early shoot

It’s really unusual for a production and catering to set up in the middle of a busy street like 9th ave.

They are shooting in Stone Coffee which is a tiny coffee counter hiding a speakeasy bar.

More catering by the Wells Fargo

This shoot has really taken over the neighborhood

From chelsea down into Meatpacking, this is the biggest shoot I’ve seen.
