New York (September 2010): Matt Bomer has been lighting up the small screen as Neal Caffrey, a convicted con man turned FBI collaborator, on crime drama White Collar (USA Network, 2009-present).
This October in IN New York Magazine, the Texas-born Bomer reveals what it is like to co-star alongside New York City. “We’re lucky …because we get to shoot in some amazing brownstones and penthouse apartments with million-dollar chandeliers,” says the 33-year-old.
White Collar has featured such iconic locations as Times Square, Columbus Circle, Battery Park, Central Park, Madison Square Park and the Financial District. Lever House (390 Park Ave.) is used as the FBI’s headquarters and Bomer’s character Neal lives in a rooftop apartment in Tudor City (btw First & Second aves., from E. 41st to E. 43rd sts.)
In reality Bomer splits his time between five-month shoots in Manhattan and his home in Los Angeles. While in New York City he enjoys going to Smalls jazz club in Greenwich Village, museums including the Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim, attending the theater and shopping at designer boutiques, including Save Khaki, Band of Outsiders, Paul Smith, John Varvatos and Rag & Bone.
