The Taking of Grand Central Terminal

by Benjamin Kabak

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.
