'Blue Bloods': A New York State of Mind
It was a surprisingly warm February day when 'Blue Bloods' stars Will Estes and Nick Turturro hit the streets of Washington Heights to film scenes for an upcoming episode.

Dressed in their police duds, the two ran up and down streets while yelling after an imaginary perp, explored a vandalized shoe store and sped around the slushy neighborhood in a police cruiser.

There's no better way to get the New York City feel than actually film in New York, right?

"It's great," Estes said. "It's really hard to fake it some place else. I think we've done a great job utilizing Brooklyn and Manhattan, really showcasing how great it is.

"It's fun, there's no place like shooting in New York."
