Law & Order: Special Victims Unit Films In Little Italy, Eradicates Graffiti
Though the long-running NBC series Law & Order was recently canceled, (maybe you heard?) NBC has committed to continuing with Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: Los Angeles and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, providing employment for Ice-T, Richard Belzer, the rest of cast and assorted guest stars.
In April, L&O SVU were in Little Italy shooting scenes for an episode that aired on May 5th. NYC The Blog snapped some photos on set at the corner of Mott and Broome, where the whole crew were milling about, filming scenes or hanging around in between takes. See a full photo set on NYC The Blog's Facebook page.
Note the scene above in photo top right, with actors playing NYPD Explorers, a real-life program for teens who want to volunteer for community service with the NYPD for such services as graffiti cleanup. Whether the actors playing a real-life pretend NYPD unit gave it a fresh coat of paint, or the building owner arranged to have it cleaned, someone did a good job removing that graffiti...you can see what the wall looks like today in the photo at left.
Below, watch video of Ice-T and the Belz in action, while the teenage police force act at(?) eradicating graffiti in the background.
