The Endgame Filming Locations
‘The Endgame’ is filmed in New York, where it is set, to make use of the dramatic backdrop and effects that the city offers. The production team particularly shoots the primary sequences in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. The filming for the first season of the crime thriller seemingly started around mid-2021. Over several decades, New York has been a perfect filming location for several decades now. It has hosted the productions of various movies and shows such as the classic ‘Taxi Driver‘ and ‘White Collar.’ Let’s take a look at the specific details!

Manhattan, New York
In July 2021, the cast and crew members were spotted shooting several sequences for the series at different locations all across New York City, Manhattan being one of the primary shooting sites. A few scenes of the inaugural season were shot at Wall Street, the 8-block-long street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan.
At the beginning of December 2021, the crew had reserved a few streets, including West 155th Street, Amsterdam Avenue, Broadway, West 159th Street, and Edgecombe Avenue, for filming some scenes for the first season of ‘The Endgame.’ Particularly, they shot some scenes involving moving vehicles at these locations, which is why the crew posted ‘No Parking’ signs 24 hours prior to shooting the scenes.

‘The Endgame’ is also filmed in the borough of Brooklyn, a few miles from Queens in New York City. Many scenes are also filmed at Greenpoint, the northernmost neighborhood of the borough.
