CBS drama Person of Interest filmed in Mineola on Tuesday, Feb. 25 near the Nassau County Legislature.
The show was shooting at the corner of Franklin Avenue and 15th Street in Mineola at around 1:45 p.m. Nassau County police were diverting traffic north and east away from the set.
Michael Emerson plays Harold Finch, an eccentric billionaire who works with former CIA agent John Reese (Jim Caviezel) to prevent crimes in New York City using a supercomputer called “The Machine.” The two were shooting a scene inside of a black sedan.
“I had no idea this was going on until today,” Mineola worker Shane Ficket said, walking north on Franklin Avenue near Nassau County Police Department headquarters.
Film crews shot scenes inside and outside the county legislature, which was doubling for Washington, D.C.
The show won the People’s Choice Award for favorite new TV drama in 2012, along with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers Award for top television series.
