Gotham series premiere in Bryant ParkOpening screening of Gotham, at the New York Public Library Bryant Park

One of the most anticipated new series of 2014 was FOX’s GothamInspired heavily by Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight film series, the show focuses on how comic book icons like commissioner Jim Gordon, Selina Kyle (Catwoman), Oswald Cobblepot (The Penguin) and The Dark Knight himself lived in Gotham City before Batman.

What truly makes it stand out to us, among the other shows premiering this season, is the many scenes shot here in NYC. It only makes sense for the team behind Gotham to film in the city on which it got its name (unlike The Blacklist, set in DC but filmed entirely in New York). Here are the NYC film locations featured in the show (starting with the latest in season 3, and going through the numerous in season 2 and 1):

Season 3

1. Old Town Bar

Old Town Bar

Old Town Bar at 45 E 18th Street is a favorite of film location scouts. The bar opened in 1892, served as a speakeasy during Prohibition, and features most of its original vintage decor ranging from its long wooden bar to the tin ceiling and tiled floors.

  1. The Old Town Bar is the bar that Harvey is bar tending at the beginning of season 2.

  2. Where exactly in Grand Central Terminal was this scene filmed, I am not familiar with this section of the building

    1. This is actually the waiting room – it’s hard to recognize because of the dim, moody lighting. Right now there’s a holiday shopping pop-up there.

      1. Thank you, I actually search again by looking for the floor plans and I found the answer

  3. In the eight episode of the first season, entitled “The Mask”, Jada Smith’s character can be found in a confessional booth in a church at approx. 17:33 mark. What was the name of the church used for this scene?
