Filed under: 11211, 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
Rami Metal (of Councilman Steve Levin’s office) writes of the above proposed bill:
Hi Heather. I’m not sure if you are aware of this or not but there is a hearing tomorrow in the Council on Steve’s bill to suspend alternate side of the street parking on those blocks immediately surrounding film shoots. The text of the bill is below. We are looking for folks to come out and testify in favor of the bill and believe that if it passes it will make things easier for residents of Greenpoint who deal with a lot of filming on their streets. Feel free to post or pass along to anyone you feel might be interested.
I know for a fact that film shoots have posed a frequent inconvenience to our community. For this reason I advise anyone and everyone who operates a motor vehicle hereabouts and has experienced firsthand how difficult parking can be when film shoots are conducted in our community to show up at City Hall tomorrow and speak up! Here are the deets:
