Nadia then walks through Tompkins Square Park and finds Oatmeal. Other scenes take place here as Nadia comes to know Horse, the homeless man who makes the park his home. Tompkins Square Park stretches from 7th to 10th streets from Avenue A to B and has played a central role in New York City’s pop culture past, inspiring figures like Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe, as the site of riots, and a vestige of the city’s grittier past.

Tompkins Square Park is also one of the few squares in New York City that is actually roughly square! The show returns several times, filming inside the park and just on the edges of the park.

  1. I think the first location is incorrect. Maxine’s apartment building looks more like the building at 10th and A, St. Nicholas Carpatho Church. The windows (including AC units) and surrounding buildings match up better, and it’s the address stated on the show.

    1. Yes you’re right! I was thrown off by the yeshiva –> apartments connection, which is like the building on the other side of the park. But the exterior is definitely St. Nicholas! Thanks!
