Before the recent WGA strike, Hudson County was turning into a mini Hollywood — with filming and celeb spottings galore. After months of silence and the eventual end of the strike, these past month has proven that Hoboken and Jersey City continue to be popular filming locations for movies, TV show, and more. In January,  we reported the news that It Ends With Us starring Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni returned to filming in Jersey City — complete with a Blake Lively sighting alongside her husband, Ryan Reynolds. Over the past few weeks, an upcoming Apple TV+ series starring Billy Crystal has also been spotted filming in Hoboken. Read on for what we know about Before (also titled Winston) filming in the Mile Square.

The Details

The new Apple TV+ series, previously titled Before (though also referred to as Winston) first started filming in New Jersey in the spring of 2023, but was halted in June due to the WGA strike, per IMDB. Production presumed in January 2024, with the film crew arriving in Hoboken on Wednesday, January 10th. Per Patch, a Paramount sent a letter to Hoboken residents notifying that filming would take place on both Wednesday, January 10th, and Thursday, January 11th from 9AM-3PM on blocks bounded by Ninth Street, Tenth Street, Washington Street, and Frank Sinatra Drive along the north waterfront.
