If you’re wondering how 1960s Las Vegas was recreated for this season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, look no further than New York City. That’s right, a portion of Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn was transformed into the Las Vegas streetscape. The scene where the band is drag racing looks to be filmed here as well.

If you haven’t been to Floyd Bennett Field yet, it’s worth a visit with historic airplane hangars, abandoned buildings, and even a place restoring World War II-era planes. The field was home to the take off and landings of aviations greats, including Howard Hughes, Charles Lindbergh, and Amelia Earhart. Today it is a National Park Service site. The interior of the fictional Phoenicia casino was filmed in Woodhaven Manor, a former movie Loew’s Willard Theater turned catering hall/event space in Queens.
