Skating and Spidey Sequel Shoot

April 20, 2003

Since it was such a nice day out, I took a little time out to go rollerblading. After last week's unsuccessful skate out to Prospect Park, I went for the traditional Central Park loop. Because I rather dislike skating over the wood slats in the Brooklyn Bridge, I indulged laziness and took the train up to Columbus Circle and skated almost a full loop, exiting at Tavern on the Green. Heading north up the east side of the loop seemed faster than normal, but I haven't skated much yet this year, and it showed halfway up the big hill in the northwest corner of the Park.

I left Central Park at Tavern on the Green and headed west to Riverside Park, where I got on the bikepath and skated down through Hudson River Park. The path through Hudson River Park is a nice quick way to travel north-south on rollerblades. At Chambers St, I headed east towards City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge.

Outside City Hall (on the east side, just across from the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge) I happened by a location for Spider-man 2, where Toby Maguire (or a double in the Spider-man costume-- it's difficult to tell under the mask) was filming a scene.

Yeah, they've been filming over here at Columbia too.

You'd think after getting bitten here, he'd stay away....

Columbia's all over the movies. It's even in Boston (in Anger Management)

I think my girlfriend and I happened upon Spiderman filming last weekend down by Wall Street - no Tobey, but they had Wall and Broad blocked off from real traffic and filled with stationary cabs, as they ran a camera suspended high above the street accross a zip line.
