11. East Village
In “Hers Was a World of One,” Olivia Cooke (from Me, Earl and the Dying Girl) plays Karla, a homeless pregnant woman who is offering her baby to gay couple Tobin and Andy (played by Andrew Scott and Brandon Kyle Goodman). She ends up moving in with them in the living room of their apartment in the East Village at 37 East 7th Street down the street from McSorley’s Old Ale House and Streecha Ukrainian Kitchen, and you’ll see many scenes shot in the neighborhood and along the waterfront.
In the description, “There was no guarantee that doing an open adoption would get us a baby any faster… in fact, our agency warned us that, as a gay male couple, we might be in for a long wait.”
