The Interpreter Apartment
Film: The Interpreter
Silvia Broome is an interpreter working at the United Nations in New York. She lives in a delightful, one bedroom, pre-war landmark townhouse apartment located on beautiful tree lined block in east Greenwich Village neighbourhood.
otsoNY Comments: Editor’s Comments: The exterior doorway and steps for this property were also seen in Step Up 3D during the street dance sequence with Moose and Camille.
The garden floor apartment features a private entry into a vestibule leading to a spacious living room with north and south exposures, decorative fireplace, built-in bookshelves and hardwood floors. The corner unit has windows providing lots of daylight and relaxing garden views as well as plenty of closets. The windowed open kitchen with laminate countertops and tiled splash back has a full size refrigerator, dishwasher and gas stove. The large renovated bathroom has black & white subway tile floor, pedestal sink, mirrored medicine cabinet and glazed shower screen over bathtub.
otsoNY Comments: The Interpreter is the first movie ever filmed inside the United Nations General Assembly and Security Council chambers (though the 1953 Columbia movie starring Gloria Grahame, "The Glass Wall", includes genuine interior and exterior sequences). Other earlier films used only the exteriors or were filmed back when the buildings were under construction. The producers approached the U.N. about filming there before, but their request was turned down. The production would have relocated to Toronto with a constructed set; however, this would have substantially increased costs, and so Sydney Pollack approached then-Secretary General Kofi Annan directly, and personally negotiated permission to film inside the United Nations. Because the UN Security Council can call an emergency meeting at any time with three hours notice, the film crew had to take into account that they could be asked to leave almost immediately. Ambassadors at the United Nations had hoped to appear in the film, but actors were asked to play the roles of diplomats.
