SHOOT: ONCE UPON A TIME Turns Vancouver Club into NYPD 35th Precinct
Once Upon a Time’s spring premiere next year is entitled New York City Serenade. Showrunner Adam Horowitz shared the title spoiler in mid-November and we’ve seen several location shoots for episode 3×12 in downtown Vancouver dressed as New York City — from Gastown’s Koret Lofts to Stanley Park dressed as Central Park to the Vancouver Club as NYPD 35th Precinct to Yaletown’s Brix restaurant and wine bar as a NYC restaurant Ostria. And even more of us have seen prop NYC cabs either parked or circling city blocks from downtown to Yaletown.
I first saw filming for New York City Serenade in Stanley Park but withheld the photos of Hook’s arrest by New York police as spoilers. They still are and I would have kept them until spring but didn’t expect OUAT to turn the venerable Vancouver Club into NYPD 35th Precinct in the middle of Vancouver’s Business District.
On Monday, Colin O”Donoghue looked happy to be done with jail at the Vancouver Club, laughing with crew.

Once Upon a Time has this Sunday off, returning next Sunday, December 1st, with 3×09 Save Henry.
