The continued filming of Joy/Kay’s Baptism will require some further parking restrictions in downtown Lynn Wednesday, but for just a two hour window within the times noted below. The rest of the scenes will take place indoors in …Hotel Bartlett?

A vintage hotel sign hangs off the facade of the recently vacated Item building.

Just last month the building was a Boston Police station for the ABC Pilot, Broad Squad. When does it earn its SAG card?
