Two Towers

Here are the Two Towers from the 1964 New York World's Fair in Flushing Meadows, Queens. But most people will remember them as one of the spaceships used by the insect alien to escape Earth at the end of the movie, Men in Black.

So have you been to any site or set where a movie was shot?

I remember that, it was so funny.
They are shooting a movie here just these days, but they are quite angry at photographers.

That is a good question.

I live in Park Slope and worked in Greenwich village for 18 years. I have lost track of how many sets I walked into when I went out for lunch or how many times I was watching a movie or TV show and realized "I was just there".

I was even watching a movie once and realized my apartment building was on the screen.

never saw that movie but always wanted to jump off these!

Thanks to that movie (which I loved and still do — I actually bought the DVD), I can never look at these without thinking of spaceships!

The answer is of course yes... already living in Paris! I was also at the Flushing Meadows World Fair!

I've been here too—but never saw that movie.
It's almost impossible to walk down the street in NYC without running into a movie or TV set (I've lost count of how many times I've stumbled upon Law & Order being filmed)!

I'm still around Ming, just severly behind! =( Catching up now!
