Someone posts Sid’s college essay on Instagram but he doesn’t know it when he gets off the elevated subway near his home in Jackson Heights, one of the most diverse neighborhoods in New York City with a large population of South Asians. His sister Meera meets him at the station and breaks the news to him. While Jackson Heights does have elevated subway lines, this scene is actually filmed in Williamsburg at the Halsey subway station on the J train. The Rite Aid at the corner has been altered to say FAST AID.
