"So this is where the rabbit hole leads" - S01E07 eps1.6_v1ew-s0urce.flv

Sharon Knowles' (Michele Hicks) husband Scott (Brian Stokes Mitchell) is downstairs at a reception hosted by Phillip Price (Michael Christofer). Sharon leaves and meets Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallström) on the roof. There's a great view, some chit chat, and cue FKA Twigs.


Even though Wellick says "On the roof, take the back stairwell, cameras have been out since March, noone will know" the filming took place in two different buildings.

The reception and bar scene were filmed inside the Bertelsmann Building at 1540 Broadway.

As the reception scene opened, while (Brian Stokes Mitchell) is feted by Phillip Price (Michael Christofer), there's a clear view out the window of the Paramount Building with it's clock faces lit up for the evening.

While Sharon Knowles and Tyrell Wellick are at the bar the Marriott Marquis on Broadway can be seen behind them out the window.

The final part of the scene was filmed on the roof of the 1155 Avenue of the Americas building.

The scene concludes with Sharon approaching Wellick from the northeast corner of the roof on 1155 Avenue of the Americas. Americas Tower (standing at W 45th Street) is behind her. A wide shot has Wellick looking east and then cuts to the south east. At right of frame is 1133 Avenue of the Americas and slightly higher behind that is the Bank of America Tower.

Thanks to CHD for help with this one.

“I’d pick better last words” - S01E06 eps1.5_br4ve-trave1er.asf

Isaac (Rick Gonzalez) takes Elliot (Rami Malek) to a dockside and is about to shoot him in the back of the head.

“You don’t want me to free Vera. That’s why you don’t care about the operation.” 

“I’d pick better last words.” 

Isaac (Rick Gonzalez) and Elliot (Rami Malek) were standing by the water’s edge on the eastern side of Newtown Creek by the Greenpoint Avenue Bridge.

As Isaac changes his mind the scene cuts to a wide shot looking west toward the United Metro Energy Corp facility on the opposite side of Newtown Creek.

"Script kitty" - S01E05 eps1.4_3xpl0its.wmv

Elliot needs Darlene’s help to hack Vera out of prison.

Darlene decides to download some ready made malware (so Elliot calls her a “script kitty”) and she walks across the prison car park dropping flash drives in the hope someone will pick one up and plug it in to the prison network.

This scene was also filmed at Westchester County Correction, 10 Woods Rd, Valhalla, NY 10595. There’s no StreetView inside the prison but you can see the car park from an overhead view.

This is at the same car park where in S01E06 Elliot realises he doesn't need to hack WPA2 because there's dedicated 4G available.

Angela (Portia Doubleday) is sitting in a ladies fashion store while a salesman (Eric Martin Brown) is fitting her with new shoes. The salesman starts to lecture Angela on the "moral fibre" of working for E Corp.

Salesman: Listen this isn't my business but don't drink their kool aid.
