Sherlock Holmes may be stopping in Bayside Monday as the hit CBS crime drama “Elementary” is slated to shoot scenes along Bell Boulevard.
Notices about the filming went up on the boulevard on Wednesday advising drivers about parking restrictions that will take effect on Sunday night into all day Monday. Filming is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, though production trucks may arrive as early as 7 a.m.
The modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth stars Jonny Lee Miller as Sherlock Holmes and Lucy Liu as Dr. Joan Watson. It was not immediately known whether both stars would be on set Monday.
The parking restrictions, which will take effect 24 hours prior to filming, will occur along both sides of Bell Boulevard between 38th and 39th avenues and both dead end blocks of 218th Street north and south of 40th Avenue. Restrictions will also be in effect on the south side of 40th Avenue between 218th and 219th streets.
Vehicles found parked in these areas will be towed away by the NYPD and relocated in the neighborhood at no penalty to the owners. To find a relocated car, call 718-687-0097.
The filming is weather permitting; current forecasts indicate the city could be feeling the effects of Hurricane Joaquin on Monday.
