Orange Is The New Black To Film on City Island In The Bronx


We’re excited to learn that the popular and 3 time Emmy winning and 12 Emmy nominated Netflix original show, Orange Is The New Black, will be filming on location for their 3rd season this coming Monday, September 8th on City Island.

The show has several Bronx connections including one of the main characters, Gloria Mendoza who is played by Cuban born and Bronx raised actress Selenis Leyva and the popular opening song is written and performed by Moscow born and Bronx raised Regina Spektor.

According to the notices given about the filming of the scenes, it is for a funeral scene (wonder who dies?) and will be using Pelham Cemetery in the scene along with other locations on City Island.

We’re definitely looking forward to seeing our Bronx in the 3rd Season of Orange Is The New Black!
