The Taking of Grand Central Terminal

By · Published in 2008

While we last saw Denzel Washington running around above ground during the filming of the remaking of The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3, amNew York’s Urbanite blog found the film crews prepping an underground station for some subway scenes. Check out these pictures of the crews setting up on the 7 platform at Grand Central. Perhaps the hijackers are taking the train west to the Hudson Yards stop that doesn’t yet exist at 34th St. and 11th Ave. [Urbanite]

    This might be why they’re killing service between QBP and TS next week during the overnights on the 7…along with making “electrical improvements.”

    • That would be quite the service diversion.

      “7 service is suspended between Queens and Manhattan from 12:01 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. due to The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3. Customers are urged to transfer to Manhattan-bound trains at Queensboro Plaza.”

      That would go over so well.

    One of the cool things about the real Pelham 1-2-3 is that a lot of it was actually filmed on the right train line.
