ARDSLEY, N.Y. – Crews were busy Monday in Ardsley transforming the former Frank’s Best Auto Body garage into a 1980s office space for Martin Scorsese’s film, “The Wolf of Wall Street,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
DiCaprio and Scorsese, along with Jonah Hill, will shoot scenes in the newly created office space Wednesday and Thursday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., said Hakiem Greenhut, a locations staff member. Filming will move outside Friday to Saw Mill River Road and 1980s cars will be brought in to line the street, Greenhut said.
The inside of the old garage on Saw Mill River Road near the village green was filled with rows of desks, covered in papers, phones and office supplies, as people quickly unloaded boxes from several cars nearby.
Both Greenhut and Ardsley Police said they do not anticipate traffic issues or roadblocks during the filming.
“As of now, no roads will be closed,” said Ardsley Police Chief Emil Califano.
Califano said traffic will be stopped temporarily to allow a few minutes of shooting, but if the shooting takes longer than expected, traffic could be rerouted to avoid delays.
Greenhut said filming will end Friday and the crews and actors will move to other locations in Long Island, New Jersey and New York City.
