Don Draper in Clinton Hill! ‘Mad Men’ star shooting flick on Grand Avenue

Yep, that was Don Draper taking in the summer breeze from one of the best places around — a Clinton Hill stoop.

Sweltering temps didn’t stop actor Jon Hamm, who snagged a Golden Globe for playing the protagonist on “Mad Men,” from checking out the vista outside tree-lined 365 Grand Ave. at Gates Avenue, in between takes for his new movie, “Friends With Kids,” co-starring Megan Fox, and directed by his gal-pal, Jennifer Westfeldt.

Other parts of the borough, including Henry Street from Cranberry to Clark, were also closed off for flick — a stroller-pushing tale of two best friends who attempt to offset the stress of raising kids by dating other people.

It’ll be out next April, and more proof — as if we needed one — that the best talkies are made in these exciting parts.

Always were, always will.
