This brick "building" between the Hayward and Premiere Towers is part of a set for CSI:NY.

Passersby might be a bit confused to see that a new building has sprung up on Spring street, filling in a parking lot between the Hayward Hotel and Premiere Towers.

It won't be around long, though, and from the sounds of it, its demise might be a loud one.

On Monday and Tuesday, CSI:NY will be filming, and the scene involves a semi truck getting rammed into the prop structure, which is supposed to be a diner.

INTERIOR & EXTERIOR SINGLE SHOT, FULL LOAD GUNFIRE. BREAKING GLASS, SIMULATED BULLET EFFECTS ON BODY/ THINGS, DUST HITS & SPARK EFFECTS. (SIMULATE A SHORT, POWERFUL GUN BATTLE) Pending Community Survey Camera cars. Condor and crane. Generator. Picture vehicles. Scissor lifts. Atmospheric smoke effects. Weapons brandished.

The shoot makes for a busy scene on that block of Spring, where production for ABC pilot Limelight has been camped at 650 S. Spring for more than a week.

The filming notification for CSI shows shooting scheduled for 5am to midnight on the two days.
