Earlier today we noted that Daniel Radcliffe would be in Brooklyn portraying Allen Ginsberg for the new movie Kill Your Darlings, yet another flick about the beat poet in just a handful of years. We headed over to the scene, and found Radcliffe walking down Smith Street flanked by a blond-haired security guard, while press photographers ran ahead, telephoto lenses in hand to get their shot. Radcliffe parked up in a tent guarded on the outside by crew members.

In the next few weeks, shooting will head up to the Columbia University campus in Morningside Heights, according to a production assistant. Keep your eyes out, Morningside Heights, Harry Potter's coming for a visit (where's the Golden Snitch?).

Wardrobe racks sat outside silver trailers occupying Smith Street parking spots reserved for the one-day shoot. Lots of tweed and lots of wool—just the perfect stifling costume for a hot, definitely-spring, almost-summer day.

Production is expected to wrap for the day by 6:45 p.m. tonight.
