The Good Wife Comes To Greenpoint

The Mister just found this slid under the front door of our apartment building. My favorite passage reads as follows:

We are aware that filming can be an inconvenience, but please know that we will be making effort to keep disruptions to a minimum.

How can one minimize “disruptions” which arise from using both sides of two city blocks as your personal parking lot/trailer park? Note the generous three days notice. Gee, thanks.

  2. this sucks. i used to live on greenpoint ave (now on java) when they were filming lipstick jungle.
    they let their trucks and other equipment run ’til past midnight, had some bright lights lighting up the street past midnight, and their stupid trucks were everywhere and were an imposing presence on the block. it was unpleasant. it’s sickens me, the way the city under the bloomberg admin bends over backwards for these people. maybe bloomberg would like these trucks and catering tables and indiots wearing those headsets cluttering up his street making noise all night.

  4. I live at Manhattan and Meserole. A kid put a similar flier in my door last night as I was getting home (there are a multitude of tenants in the building, and even though I hung it by the mailboxes, I doubt anyone read it…) The kicker? They warned that Friday night between 6-10 PM, residents should not be alarmed by the fake gun shots that they would hear, and that there would be no need to call police. Ugh.

  8. Maybe I’m wrong, but I could swear there was a sign saying they were shooting an episode of “Cougar Town” on location on Milton St.

  10. Methinks this needs to be verified. For obvious reasons.

  12. The fault in your thinking, palaganda, is to assume we— you and me— are citizens in the eyes of the people who run this city (and as such have rights equal to those of this production company— or any other monied entity). We are not and do not.

    The manner in which Mr. Bloomberg became eligible to run for a third term makes it all too clear what he thinks of the average NYC voter.

  14. And calls to David Yassky’s office got me no where (especially since he is focused on getting more tax breaks for film companies). I have complained a lot to the Mayor’s office about over-filiming in Greenpoint and I cornered Evan Thies about this when he was campaigning and he claims there are just no laws on the books governing over-filming.

Tell me what you're thinking...
