There were street closures in Chinatown for the filming of the Amazon Television pilot “The Man in the High Castle” on Sept 30 and Oct 1. The series is based on Philip K. Dick’s Hugo Award-winning novel. The premise is an alternate reality in which the Nazis and Japan won World War II and then took over the United States.
Storefronts and streets were transformed to reflect a re-imagined 1950s Chinatown. Streets were closed, mainly King St., 7th Ave., and 8th Ave. Businesses were still open, except for those that were used for filming.
Adorable mini-cars and extras in 50’s attire replaced the normal Chinatown activity. (end)
