Filming in the subway


The subways have been on film since the early 1900s. Our transit system has
also appeared in such classic TV shows as The Odd Couple and The Naked City.
In the latter series, Diahann Carroll once played a teacher whose students got
lost during a school trip after sneaking off a bus.) We've worked with modern TV
and film crews for decades, meeting every kind of demanding, technical, logistical,
and scheduling requirement--from transforming a subway car into a Middle Earth
fantasy world with Gollum statues to providing a distinctive runway for designer
Yeohlee Tang's 2005 Fashion Underground fashion show; and we have managed
everything in between.
