HBO's "Boardwalk Empire" was spotted filming Monday in the Flatiron District with cast members around Gramercy Park.

  

The production company's Locations Department sent this letter, distributed on the Gramercy Park Block Association's Facebook page, to local residents saying crew would be filming interior scenes on June 17.

  

Actors sporting backpacks and Prohibition era suits walked in the mid-80s New York heat. They entered from Irving Pl. and headed down Gramercy Park South into the National Arts Club.
