Roosevelt Island Outdoor Cafe Tables, Chairs & Heating Lamps Spotted Next To Trellis/Nisi Today - No Restaurant Opening, It Was A Scene For Filming New TV Show

Outdoor cafe tables, chairs, lights and heating lamps could be seen earlier today at a rainy Good Shepherd Plaza

and next to the still closed Trellis/Nisi restaurant.

Could it be that the long under renovation Trellis/Nisi was about to open?

Nah, it was a scene set up of a film shoot for new TV program called Redliners.

According to a Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) advisory this morning:
Please be advised that on, Friday, March 31st, 2017 from 6AM to Saturday, April, 1st, 2017 at 12AM, the following areas have been permitted for a film shoot:

the Plaza between 543 Main St (Good Shepard Community Center) and 549 Main St (Trellis Restaurant), also at the 576 Main St (Roosevelt Landings bldgs) breezeway area.

There will be “No Parking, No Stopping and No Standing” in front of 531 Main St (Rivercross bldgs) to 571 Main St (R.I. Cleaners) from 6AM, Friday, March 31st, 2017 through 6AM, Saturday, April, 1st, 2017.

During this time, expect intermittent traffic delays and increased pedestrian traffic in these areas. R.I. Public Safety Department and the NYC Police Department Movie Unit will be present during this film shoot to facilitate vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

We appreciate your cooperation during this project.
