The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Union Square

When I walked out onto Broadway after choir practice my friend Barbara and I could see there was a big movie shoot a few blocks uptown. We walked up and Union Square was transformed in a positively magical way. The trees were strung with white Christmas lights, smoke machines were churning away everywhere. It was all for a shoot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

This is Emma Stone and I’m guessing Andrew Garfield. They were shooting the two of them just walking through Union Square, except Union Square doesn’t usually look this enchanting. Smoke doesn’t billow up around your feet as you stroll. I’m not complaining. Union Square should always look like this movie set. I want smoke billowing up around my feet when I get my broccoli, corn and pumpkin pie.
