In our Year in Review, we look back on the murders, tragedies, restaurant news, celebrity sightings and #SMH moments that impacted the Hudson Valley in 2017.

In this post, we take a look back at the many celebrity sightings in the Hudson Valley.

In May, Drew Barrymore was in Orange County at the Newburgh Vintage Emporium for some antiquing. 

Also in May, "American Pickers" announced the reality show was going to film in the Hudson Valley. Producers were on the lookout for interesting antique collections and eccentric, local characters.

Then in August, we learned that Al Pacino's HBO film about Joe Paterno was being filmed in the Hudson Valley, with background extras needed.

In September, Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Martin Scorsese filmed parts of "The Irishman" in Suffern.

Shortly after, the film icons were back in the Hudson Valley and joined by Pacino for more scenes for the upcoming Netflix movie, "The Irishman."

According to IDMB, local filming locations included Weir's Ice Cream in Salisbury Mills, Orange Top Dinner in Tuxedo, Ralph’s Motor Repairs in Washingtonville and Callahan-Nannini Shale in Blooming Grove.

And in October, many people wondered, why did Ben Stiller remove a road sign on Route 9W? 

The answer: the Cornwall town sign near the 9W entrance was temporarily removed for filming. Stiller was directing scenes for the Showtime miniseries, "Escape from Dannemora."
