  • Although the story is set in New York City, filming location is set in Budapest, where a hard-working team has recreated most of the sets, including the exterior façades of the main buildings, the main streets as well as shops and business places. They also meticulously replicated the exteriors and entrances of existing locations, giving the impression that the characters access the real buildings, generally reproduced on studios such as Kreizler's house or located in real New York City.
