Have you ever asked yourself what is the difference between Greenpoint and the Ninth Ward of New Orleans other than, say, the latter was pulverized by a cataclysmic force of nature? If so, today I learned the answer.

According to a scouting agent for HBO, apparently nothing.

P.S.: I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry when I saw this.

UPDATE, March 11, 2010: It has been brought to my attention by several folks that Treme will be shooting footage in Greenpoint that will actually depict New York City. I know, I know. I’m just as surprised as you are. Especially in light of the fact a substantial part our fair nabe’s  waterfront has been given a make-over so as to imitate Atlantic City and there are in fact parts of Greenpoint that look like they have been on the business end of the wrath of god.

  4. Yes, because a series set in New Orleans would never, ever feature a character who once lived elsewhere. There is no possibility whatsoever that any other aspect of a characters life would be represented in the series other than that which takes place in the Ninth Ward.
