AMC's revolutionary drama "Turn: Washington's Spies" was filming in the Historic Area Monday morning, Jan. 26, 2015, on Palace Green and at the Governor's Palace. The show is based on historian Alexander Rose's book, "Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring." It follows the story of Abraham Woodhull, a farmer living in British-occupied Long Island who turns a group of childhood friends into Culper Spy Ring. The members turned against their family and the kings and helped Washington turn the tide of the war in favor of the rebels. The area outside the Governor's Palace and the Green was transformed to have the appearance of the time period.
