Living uptown can be a crack up. En route to school one morning, just steps from our building we saw film notices for “Gossip Girl,” one of our favorite emissions. And beyond that stood two paparazzi, “guys, it’s 7:30am,” I snapped their picture as they took ours.
Same morning, 15 minutes later, across town, more television crews were set up to shoot “Kings.” The great thing about their scenes were bicycles for rent, similar to the system in place in Paris, and recycling bins alongside trash cans. Too bad it’s only make believe.
