Who is Piper? The new ABC's supernatural series Emergence revolves around a police chief who takes in a young girl, the only survivor of an unexplained airplane accident with no memory of what has happened.

Fargo's Allison Tolman plays policewoman Jo Evans, Owain Yeoman is journalist Benny Gallagher and Alexa Swinton is Piper, the mysterious girl with superpowers.

The thriller is set in Southold, a town in Long Island's Peconic Bay, but actually, Emergence was filmed in New Jersey, in the southern Greater New York Area.

Here is our spoiler-free filming locations report of the series.

  1. My co-worker tells me they are filming by her house in Passaic, NJ. They are using the hospital location there and possibly other parts of the show.

  2. They just started filming in west milford nj by the presparterian church on union valley road.

  3. Just saw the Broad St. Diner in Keyport NJ in one of the scenes. We were there when they filmed it!

  4. Looks like a scene was also filmed in Kinnelon, NJ at Boonton Ave Field.

  5. i saw them filming at the old meadowlands racetrack as a setting for the bus terminal.

  6. They started filming again in Union Beach, NJ. Either that or it's a very bad porno...
