Mr. Robot: Mapping the USA Series' NYC Filming Locations

See where Elliot, Mr. Robot, and the rest of the fsociety crew hang out in the five boroughs

Mr. Robot is one of the most—if not the most—visually stunning shows currently on TV. Creator/director Sam Esmail's unorthodox camera angles and stark wide shots set an unsettling mood in line with the mental state of the show's main character, a disturbed, drug-addled hacker named Elliot Alderson (Rami Malek).

But aside from Elliot and the various other tech geniuses, dastardly CEOs and untrustworthy imaginary friends that populate Mr. Robot's world, the show's other protagonist is New York City. Esmail & Co. film on location in visually arresting spots all over the city, from the shiny megatowers of midtown to the boardwalks of Coney Island to the outer reaches of Queens.

You may not encounter E Corp ads or fsociety graffiti tags in the real world, but there are still plenty of IRL locales New Yorkers can visit to get a glimpse into Mr. Robot's gorgeous, paranoid hackerscape. And check back as we add more locations in the weeks to come. (Beware: Spoilers ahead.)
