NBC’s “The Blacklist” is coming back to Queens this week, this time to film scenes for its fourth season on Flushing Avenue in the industrial sections of Ridgewood and Maspeth.

The filming will take place on Friday, Sept. 23, at 51-05 Flushing Ave. from 6 a.m. to noon, and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. at a junkyard located at 1937 Flushing Ave.


The first scene will involve shots being fired as the crew will be filming a sniper taking aim at his target from a top floor apartment window, with point-of-view shots from the sniper’s vantage point. Meanwhile, inside of one of the apartments, a character has a pizza delivered.

The second scene takes place at an auto salvage yard where two SUVs pull into the salvage yard. A hostage that has been taken captive by mercenaries is removed from one of the SUVs and pulled into the open. The sniper positioned in the top floor apartment of the neighboring building shoots and kills the hostage. The mercenaries drag the body inside and undercover FBI agents in the yard scatter.

There will be parking restrictions on Friday in conjunction with this filming.

Both sides of Metropolitan Avenue between Flushing and Woodward avenues will be blocked from parking for 1/4 of the block.

There will be no parking on the full east and west sides of Flushing Avenue between Woodward Avenue and Troutman Street.

No parking will be allowed on half of the western side of Starr Street between Woodward and Metropolitan avenues.

“The Blacklist” is a crime thriller starring James Spader as Raymond “Red” Reddington, and Megan Boone as Elizabeth Keen. Earlier this year actor Ryan Eggold, who plays Tom Keen on the show, was seen in Bayside as “The Blacklist” filmed its season three finale.
