Many of our clients spend a lot of time prepping the interior of their properties and rightfully so, but there is one part the home that we find gets little attention, but it has been a cinematic star for generations; the steps (or the stoop if you are from Brooklyn). Most of our Location Managers spend a lot of time scoping out the exterior of a property before even setting foot inside. The stoop is that congregation area that can set the arc of a film. Well here are some of the On The Set Locations favorite stoops.
Rosario Dawson, center, and Chloe Sevigny, bottom right, in "Kids" (1995).
"Do The Right Thing" w/ John Savage (with bike) and a young Giancarlo Esposito (in yellow) - 1989
"Crooklyn"; one of Spike Lee's best coming of age films. A lot of time was spent on the stoop. 1994
Maybe on of the best kissing scene in on a stoop; Will Smith & Kevin James in Hitch (2005)
Who can forget these NY beauties on the stoop. Kim Cattrall, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kristin Davis & Cynthia Nixon in Sex & The City Movie (2008)
So give your steps (or stoop) the attention it deserves. Its ready for it's close-up for On The Set NY.
