As many people who live in New York City can tell you, it isn't that uncommon to stumble across somebody famous. Everyone who has lived there has "a story."
For example, even famous movie stars have to take the elevator - I rode up in one with Robert Deniro once, he lives (or lived) on Central Park South. Whoopdee doo. I didn't even realize it was him until somebody told me right afterwards with that breathless kind of speaking as if they had just seen Jesus. I did notice at the time that he was wearing really cool tortoise-shell eyeglasses, that's what I recalled afterward. They were more interesting to me than he was (not knowing who he was at the time).
Whatever. Just part of the life. I have lots of similar stories, some probably a lot more interesting than that one.
Anyway, they were filming "Sharknado 2: The Second One" (2014). Not the most famous movie franchise of all time, perhaps - but you can't pick the film crews that appear out of nowhere.
Below, for what they are worth, a couple of snaps a friend took recently from filming the "Sharknado" follow-up. I believe that is Ian Ziering - I could be wrong. But probably not. You won't see these anywhere else.
