“Law and Order: SVU”
If you haven’t seen a posting about “Law and Order: SVU” filming in your neighborhood, are you really a New Yorker? Well, if not, now’s your chance to earn that title, because “SVU” is currently filming its 20th season (yes, you read that right) at Chelsea Piers. The show was cast by Jonathan Strauss Casting.

There have been many interpretations of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic detective Sherlock Holmes, but few have placed the sleuth in modern-day NYC after a stint in rehab. CBS’ hit show “Elementary,” starring Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller, and cast also by Mark Saks, is currently filming at 873 Washington St. in Manhattan.
