Sunnysiders might hear a loud bang in the neighborhood today as film crews in the area create a “simulated explosion”.
The explosion is scheduled to take place any time between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. along Skillman Avenue between 46th and 47th Streets, and is part of a media production.

NYPD and FDNY crew will be on site during the event to ensure safety.
While the media production tied to the explosion was not announced, the event is likely part of Elementary, the contemporary Sherlock Holmes show on CBS starring Lucy Liu and Johnny Lee Miller that has been shooting in Sunnyside over the past several days.
Film crews have been spotted along Queens Boulevard and 43rd Avenue, and have recently filmed inside McGuinness’s at the corner of 45th Street and Queens Boulevard.

For fans of @lucyliu and @jonnylmiller, know the show @elementaryofficial is filming today alongside #queensblvd in #sunnyside_queens (well, maybe technically #woodside). They’re holed up in McGuinness’s at the time of this post. #nyc @madein_ny @madeinnewyorkcity #homesweetneighborhood #moviestars #hollywoodnyc
