Neil Patrick Harris Snaps a Selfie in Astoria

Neil Patrick Harris is having the best time ever — in Queens.

The former "How I Met Your Mother" star snapped a selfie in front of the Kaufman Astoria Studios outdoor lot on 35th Avenue and 36th Street on Monday, where he'll be filming a new live television show for NBC dubbed "Best Time Ever," according to a post on his Twitter page.

"Best Time Ever" will be a live one-hour show featuring "appearances by A-list stars, stunts, comedy skits, incredible performances, mini game shows, audience giveaways and hidden camera pranks," according to NBC's website. It premieres Sept. 15. You can request tickets to sit in the audience here.

The Astoria film studio is home to several other big-name television shows, including "Sesame Street," and "Orange is the New Black."

Last year, the city named the neighborhood surrounding the studios the Kaufman Arts District. The area is home to several other cultural institutions, including Museum of the Moving Image, the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts and the Queens Council on the Arts.
