The notice warns:

“Please note that there will be simulated gunfire effects during the hours of filming. Port Authority Police Department (PAPD) will be on-site to assist during filming.”

  1. Universal Television ought to consider shooting in Toronto instead. Much better locations and it would ultimately be more profitable for them.

  2. I think this is an excellent location at which to film, and the city makes money on these events, so it is a win-win situation. FBI, is a not a new future TV series; it has been on this whole season.
