Uncommon announcement

Usually Metro North's conductors follow a straight forward announcement template when they speak through P.A. to the people in the train.

This morning, the arrival notice for Grand Central Terminal was a bit off the norm - other commuters in the coach mentioned, that it is his last day at work today, that's why he's so excited. Let me try to remember what he said (Dan on train 830 - 710am from Cortlandt to Grand Central):
Alright folks, we're arriving at the iconic landmark of New York: Grand Central. Please make sure that you look up the racks and around you to gather all your belongings. If you leave it and we find it, it takes in average 2 weeks until you can get it from the "Lost and Found".
Have a wonderful Friday, this is Big Apple. New York, New York.

And Action! Filming with train!

Another day whith the John Wick setcrew on site in Grand Central Terminal. Today the tracks 34/35 with the platform inbetween is in the center of attention. A lot of extras are standing there and a train is used to simulate an approach. This scene is taken 2 times (at least in the time when I was there).

A Scene where a train arrived and people heading towards the main hall:

This scene needs another take. The train pulls out into the tunnel and the extras are in position on the platform again. After a while, the train approaches again:

And Action! Still filming.

More scenes are captured to make "Jon Wick 3".

Today's set it in the walk down ramp to the lower level. Sad: I had no time to film the scene-filming by myself.

And, Action! Filming at Grand Central Terminal.

While heading home on Sunday night to catch the 9.45pm train to Poughkeepsie, I ran into the set of "John Wick 3" where they were shooting a scene that apparently takes place in a train station. If not actually in Grand Central Terminal.

Many, many people were involved - alone 20+ NYPD Police officers where securing the site along with private security and set-hands.

The only famous fellow I spotted was Keanu Reeves himself. In that scene, he walked with a grumpy face through the crowded train station. (I do that every morning - I wish someone would pay me for that ;)

Half of the main hall in grand central terminal was dedicated to the filming crew. However, I had a chance to tape one take with Mr. Reeves and all the accompanying extras from far away with my phone. Like many others did as well...

The movie will hit the theaters on May 17th 2019. You already find some trailers on youtube...

However, not sure if there is an official one already.
