I'm interested in compiling an archive/record of movies and TV shows that have shot scenes in Ditmas Park. Does anyone have any good stories or photos or sightings to share?Thanks!
um well in 1999-2000 or so Swimfan was shot on Westminster road. The house the lead character lived on was on Westminster between Ditmas and Dorchester, not NJ like the movie depicted.
The Sophie's Choice houe was on Rugby Road.They used the interior of the house I grew up in (east 19th) on a recent episode of "The Good Wife."
According to IMDB, parts of The Squid and the Whale were filmed in Ditmas Park.
Apparently there is a lot of film activity down there, but sSurprisingly few movies in IMDB are tagged with "Ditmas Park" as the shooting location.
Exterior shots for Canterbury's Law, a short-lived series actually set in Providence RI, were done in 2007 on East 19th Street between Glenwood and Foster (Midwood Park, not Ditmas Park).
Fringe has shot a lot of exteriors in the hood. Not sure about interior scenes.
I think that a Lazarus avatar might be more fitting than Rasputin.

Cool! One of my favorite shows. I didn't know that.
"Boardwalk Empire" is shooting on 18th and 19th all day today and this evening.
