It's an especially busy time for television and movie production in the city, as you may have gathered from films crews invading neighborhoods from Ozone Park to the Lower East Side. We decided to do some digging into projects' shooting patterns as production kicked into high gear for fall releases. From August through October, longtime players like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit continued their local reign, buzzy newcomers (Orange Is the New Black, Girls) worked on future seasons, and soon-to-debut series like Taxi: Brooklyn South prepared for their inaugural runs. Meanwhile, new film production, including Jay Z and Will Smith's Annie, is going strong.

Using On Location Vacation, we tracked every single film and TV project in the five boroughs during those three months. There were 789 in total, the overwhelming majority are destined for the silver screen. As far as locations, it seems you have the most chance of bumping into a crew in Manhattan, and Brooklyn and Queens are nearly tied as popular shooting boroughs.

We also noticed some days were more popular than others to get shit done, with filming coming to a near standstill on about half the Saturdays and Sundays we tallied. Good to know the hardworking film crews get at least some days off! Check out the infographics for the scoop on projects filmed in NYC.
