Mad Men (2007-2015)

Mad Men delves into the world of advertising in 1960s Manhattan.  In between cigarettes and drinks, the show explored the shady life of Don Draper/Dick Whitman and his cohorts at Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency.  Mad Men was an Emmy fave thanks to its acting, writing and directing.  The pilot was filmed in New York but once the show was picked up, production moved to Los Angeles.

Mad Men was filmed in New Rochelle, NY and Los Angeles, CA

Location: The Draper House (Pilot)
Address: 90 Forest Avenue, New Rochelle, NY

Location: The Ossining Train Station
Address: Main Street & Secor Road, Ossining, NY

I had never actually been to the Ossining train station before since it was not the train line I lived near.  I was bummed to find out that the actual train station was not used.  In the pilot, Don walks out of the ticketing office where the parking lot and some storefronts are seen in the background.  But the Ossining train station has a bridge right outside the ticketing office.  Perhaps the New Rochelle station was used since that's where The Draper House is.
