According to 6News,
Beginning Friday August 5, 2022, through Saturday, August 27, 2022, there will be various parking restrictions and road closures throughout the month to accommodate HBO filming of The Gilded Age in the City of Albany.
Owner Tim Taney of the Slidin’ Dirty restaurant on 1st street in troy said he got a nice boost of business last year so he’s happy for this year.
“There already in town, so we’re starting to see some of those faces from last year coming back in, filling up for lunchtime and we’ve actually been in contact with their production office about bringing the food truck to feed them during some of the filming here throughout the month…so I Don’t think you’ll see the Slidin’ Dirty food truck on the Gilded Age, but we’ll be nearby”, said Taney.
We love this!
