Where was the movie Sharper filmed? We discuss the 2023 Apple TV+ film and the filming locations carried out by the production team. 

Benjamin Caron is the director of the tense thriller Sharper from Apple TV+. With a nonlinear plot and a twisted, convoluted con against the wealthy businessman Richard Hobbes, played with the usual style by John Lithgow, this is a glossy and tightly plotted thriller that has an ensemble cast of characters that all have secrets, leading to a final act twist that only the very observant among you will see coming.

However, what you might see are some of the locations for the film, and that is where this short article is going, so relax for a moment as we find out where Sharper was filmed.

Where was the movie Sharper filmed – a breakdown of filming locations

New York City/New York

Washington Square Park

Movie fans will immediately notice that most pivotal scenes have been filmed in and around New York. Early in the production process, some crew was spotted in Washington Square Park, located at the foot of Fifth Avenue. This iconic location is a cultural hub for the city and is often utilized in filmmaking.


Located in lower Manhattan, Soho was a primary filming location for the film too. Vibrant and exciting, this is another area of New York, often seen in movies, that conveys a bustling and exciting landscape for directors. It is a prime shopping area, and the design of the buildings, complete with iron fire escape ladders, have a unique and timeless look.

LaGuardia Place

A Twitter post from 2021 shows the parking restrictions in place for what would ultimately be the film Sharper, so below is a list of the streets that would be blocked off to allow filming, giving you a small insight into the shooting locations.

  • East side of LaGuardia Place Between Washington Square South and West Houston Street.
  • West Side of W Broadway between W Houston St and Spring St
  • South Side of W Houston St between Sullivan St and Wooster St
  • Both sides of Thompson between Prince St and Spring St

The areas were closed off, no doubt causing all kinds of problems for commuters, between the hours of 8 am and 9 pm.

New York has been a fantastic location for filmmakers for years, to the point where some directors would try and avoid filming as so many films were shot there. The mix of old and new means many ready-to-go “sets” can be efficiently utilized for movies set in different periods. Townhouses around since the 1700s look fantastic and are ready-made for period dramas like the ’20s, 30s, and 40s, and you don’t have to build a set.
