Residents in the Forest Hills, Rego Park and Glendale areas may have noticed trailers and street detours over the past week as filming for the CBS drama “Blue Bloods” Season 4 has begun.

Trailers were put in place last Thursday along Yellowstone Boulevard at the Alderton and Selfridge intersections. According to Community Board 5 and the 104th Precinct, filming began on Tuesday on 88th Street between Cooper and Doran avenues between 5:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.

Filming also took place on 70th and 69th avenues in Forest Hills earlier in the day.

Though roads were closed for filming, there were no reports of complaints even with a portion of filming taking place during rush hour.

According to the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, the entertainment industry employs more than 130,000 New Yorkers and contributes approximately $7.1 billion to the city’s economy annually. There are also 4,000 ancillary businesses that support production throughout the five boroughs
