CBS Show Filming in Congers and Rockland Lake

Last Chance Saloon has been the set of the show for the last few days


A little bit of Hollywood came to Congers when the CBS show Person of Interest started filming at Last Chance Saloon a few days ago. The show is in its second season and airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m.

Last Chance Saloon said that today, Tuesday, is the last day of filming at their establishment so they'll reopen their business in a few hours. Clarktown Police said that the filming started a few days ago at the Congers location, but was filming before that "at Rockland Lake (State Park) for a while.)

Does anyone have any more PICTURES of the filming or the Person of Interest stars? I think it is possible that Michael Emerson may be the actor involved in these shoots.

The trucks and gear used by the TV crews are tucked away in just about every open spot in Congers. A lot going on.

The problem with filming in Rockland County is that the Towns let these production companies get away with providing their own caterers so they do not bring business to the local establishments. Most people are not aware of that and believe this type of movie/TV show making brings in revenue. Maybe to the already well paid Police officers that are paid loads of money to provide secrity on the side? That should be part of their permit agreement -You must use a local caterer or restaurant and pay a fee for all the parking they take up that could be divided among all the businesses that basically get shut down while production goes on all around them. This is definately a way for the Towns and county to produce revenue from Production companies that have the money but, figured out how to Cheat Rockland County out of it. Why do you think they are here? They found a cheap place to film!!! Wake up Rockland county.

So you want the government to tell a private company who they must hire to feed their own staff? Ok, Comrade. Those TV and movie shoots are on tight schedules, they feed about 200 people in an hour or so, and the company hires a contractor to do it. The movie crews have contract demands that require hot meals. They also have to be able to get the crew in and out in a hurry. As for the police (no thread on the patch is complete without bashing them), they are paid by the production company, not the town.
how about the heads on maple ave.....do some research for an off roading movie ..main street new city can compete with the worst of roads in the country..and maybe they can contract out the ones who made this mess !!!

INTHEKNOW-Not bashing the Police merely stating a fact. Please prove me wrong. I believe in the neighborhood of $100 per hr. I'm Not saying the town is paying them, Thats what on the side means??? A movie shoot done in Pearl River last year tied up all the local business parking spots and they LOST money during that time frame. No one paid them back for lost revenue? The permit is a one time fee. Then what else does the movie/tv shoot bring in as far as revenue? Nothing, thats what. FYI- a local hall was rented last year (cheaply I might add)so that could easily have had a local caterer do the meals. They do it all the time for parties in these places. And believe me no one on the movie shoot looked to be in a hurry to do anything.
INTHEKNOW July 25, 2012 at 05:07 PM
They may not have looked like they were in a hurry to you.. .but time is money on a tv shoot. Everyone has a job.. If a local hall was available, you're right, perhaps it would be good to suggest that they use a local caterer to throw some business to the locals.

How did the film crew limit the trains coming through Congers. I can only recall one when they were almost done.

Whether it is the beautiful that brings to our hearts the love of truth and justice, or whether it is truth that teaches us how to find the beautiful in nature and how to love it, in eather case art does a noble work. It drags out the soul from its everyday shell, and brings it under the spell of its own mysterious and wonderful power, so that a memory of this experience stays with the people, sustains them in their daily labors, and refines their minds.

Many people I know track the shooting schedule of their favorite shows. When a show shoots within driving distance, they go to that town. Fans got to eat, to sleep,to buy film and markers,to get gas. Ever been to Riverside, Iowa? No. But Star Trek Fans have. Ever been on an historical tour that went to a famous location shot from a movie? Also, what town you know pays their police well? Finally, the cheapest place to film would have been their studio- Back in NEW YORK
I WAS THERE FOR A FEW HOURS AND ALL THE ACTORS WALKED PAST ME..VERY NICE PEOPLE..and the lead actor stopped to pick up his plate of food set up by their caterer as he was between strawberrys and the library..so people now way no how could they even consider using a local resturant.. they planned everything professionally.the whole street had a nice enrgy...people stopping at the post office to drop off letters asked us to please put them in the mailbox which a few nice people did...Nyack has nice energy..diversity..unlike clowntown .

Yes, on Wednesday afternoon at the Nyack Library I saw "Mr. Reese". very good looking and lots of fun to see the excitement. Also, Nyack Library receives payment for these shots. So those disgruntled grumps should not complain so much. They ate in Arts Cafe and spent money in other places - and were very good-natured and friendly. I really enjoyed it.
Judy Kurland July 26, 2012 at 12:38 PM
Actually I saw many of the cast and crew eating at the Arts Cafe on Wednesday afternoon.

I saw "Mr. Reese" in Nyack Library on Wednesday - he's quite tall and good looking. Everyone was pleased and excited and remember - they do pay a substantial amount to the library (which the library needs).

@marty--did you ever consider asking itdknow to identify and quote the bashing he/she refers to. I have and neither he or Cgaflife ever can. I would like to suggest to people to please ask for a quote when you are accused or attacked by anyone. let them be very specific as to what they are accusing you of. Maybe the 2 I mentioned could post a quote before the attack and save everyone the trouble-like this In the d know or cgafl would quote what either perceives as a bash or hate talk. "Maybe to the already well paid Police officers that are paid loads of money to provide secrity on the side" Then in the d know or the other one cgafl would make the post why ya gotta bash the cops. you must hate them sooo much or maybe you failed the test
