Hunters: Amazon Prime's event series in 5 locations

TV show
Amazon Prime's Blockbuster, the Hunters series, produced by Jordan Peele (Us, Get Out) with Al Pacino and Logan Lerman, has moved into the Big Apple, plunging us into the mid-70s.

The hunt is on in New York

Telling the story of how a group of Nazi hunters are trying to find former high-ranking dignitaries of the Third Reich hidden in New York, Hunters was filmed in the streets of New York. A city that has once again become the scene of a sumptuous reconstruction. Here are the 5 main locations of the series.

Jonah’s house

Young Jonah (Logan Lerman) lives in this house on 73rd Avenue with his grandmother (Jeannie Berlin) when his daily life turns to horror. While Logan’s official home address is given in the series as 4513 73rd Avenue, this is not where the footage in question was shot at all. This address does not actually house any such houses, as the film crews preferred to settle on Suydam Street, in the heart of the Bushwick district of Brooklyn. Logan Lerman became known to the general public thanks to the film The World of Charlie, in which he played the role of Emma Watson.

Adress: 33 Suydam Street, Brooklyn, NY 11221, USA

FBI Headquarters

This is where Special Agent Millie Morris (Jerrika Hinton) works. An address that actually matches the real FBI offices in New York. Showrunner David Weil and Hunters wanted to pay tribute to his grandmother, a former prisoner of the Nazi concentration camps. This has not prevented certain associations working for the memory of the victims of the Shoah from pointing the finger at certain scenes. Scenes invented from scratch for the purposes of history.

Adress: 26 Federal Plaza, New York, NY 10278, USA

Wonder Wheel at Coney Island

The house of Meyer Offerman

Meyer Offerman (Al Pacino), the rich chief of the Nazi hunters, lives here. It is also from its luxurious home that the team gets organized and finds itself after its high-risk missions. Classified as a historical monument, this Renaissance-style house is also known as Edith Fabbri House. For once, even the interior scenes were shot there, exploiting in particular the incredible library. The house also appears in the Billions series.

Mindy (Carol Kane) and Murray (Saul Rubinek) marry their daughter in this synagogue. It was one of the first synagogues built in the United States by Eastern European Jews. More beautiful than ever, it was the subject of an ambitious renovation project completed in 2007 after 20 years of work. It is classified as a historical monument. This is not the first time Al Pacino has worked for television. He has been seen several times on HBO, in TV movies such as The Truth about Jack, Phil Spector and Paterno, three biopics.
