Suggested correction: It's not camera equipment you're seeing; it's one of the newspaper dispensers on the sidewalk outside Luke's, at the curb. These newspaper dispensers are visible in many episodes.

Trivia: In some episodes, Rory speaks Spanish (e.g when she is talking to her grandmother's maid). She speaks very poorly, typical "school-Spanish". This is just acting; Spanish is actually Alexis Bledel's first language. Her mother is from Mexico and her father is from Argentina.
