It’s the fourth season of Billions, the financial criminal drama on Showtime, and Axe Capital head Bobby Axelrod (Damien Lewis) and US District Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) have formed an unexpected but deliciously exciting partnership, with Wendy Rhoades brokering the detente. The goal for all: revenge. Axe is in it for Taylor Mason, who has walked away with the backing of Grigor Andalov (John Malkovich) and now possibly the money of the Sheik of Qadir, a made up Middle Eastern country. Rhoades has been maneuvered out of his Attorney General job and is out for blood – but finds his connections limited in the new role he’s fashioned for himself as power broker.
In the first season of Billions, the cat and mouse game between Axe Capital head Bobby Axelrod (Damien Lewis) and US District Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) underwent some twist and turns, complicated by the fact that Rhoades’ wife Wendy is the resident psychiatrist at Axe Capital.
With the second season, the drama was at a breaking point, culminating in Rhoades’ complicated maneuver to entrap Axelrod. In the third season, Axelrod had been compromised but is still fighting while Rhoades must face the consequences of his vengeance.
Each season of Billions has seen more and more filming locations in New York City. We’ve discovered that there have been some inaccuracies in fan listed film locations we’ve seen elsewhere online, so consider this a definitive guide to film locations in Billions.
21. Four Freedoms Park

Wendy and Taylor meet up on Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island, a Louis Kahn-designed memorial to Roosevelt’s famous Four Freedoms speech built after his death. They talk about the documentary My Architect: A Son’s Journey, made by Louis Kahn’s son as a way to find who his father was. They stand in “The Room,” the southern tip of the park (and of Roosevelt Island).
Discover the secrets of Four Freedoms Park, a park we documented over the years while it was under construction.
