Film and Photo Shoots

Beautiful year-round, Abingdon Square regularly serves as a location for filming and photography.

In order to film or photograph in Abingdon Square, please fill out NYC Parks’ Film Shoot Request Form in order to facilitate coordination between the park administrator for Abingdon Square and the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre & Broadcasting (MOFTB).  For more information regarding the MOFTB film permit, please visit or call (212) 489-6710.

Abingdon Square Conservancy receives no public funding and is solely dependent on private donations for its operation.  To continue improving and maintaining the Square at a level the neighborhood has come to expect, we look to entities that shoot in the Square to help.  Film and photography companies that work in Abingdon Square typically donate from $500 to $5,000, depending on the scope of the project.
