Actress taylor schilling knew what to expect the first time she visited New York City. As an 11-year-old, she had already binge-watched many of Woody Allen’s New York films: Annie Hall, Manhattan, Broadway Danny Rose. “I didn’t realize it, but I’d been preparing to visit the city for so long,” she says. “And then I got here, and I thought, ‘This is where I wanna be.’ ” Twenty years later, Schilling is being binge-watched on the Netflix show Orange Is the New Black (though, hopefully, not by 11-year-olds), which kicks off its fourth season June 17. In late 2015, Schilling migrated from Manhattan to a leafy neighborhood in Brooklyn filled with gorgeous 19th-century architecture. “I have more space here than I’ve had in a long time,” she says.
