Culture on the Cheap
Coming (Back) To Greenpoint: Blue Bloods
That’s right folks: after The Kensington Prospect (from whose blog I grabbed the image at left) broke the good news that Blue Bloods were looking for “working class neighborhood types” for a film shoot coming to pass in their neighborhood August 12 (lucky devils!) I have learned they will be returning to Greenpoint this upcoming Friday, August 19th. Hipsters, Hispanics, elderly women (and men); men with long hair and tattoos; and of course “Polish types” take note. This is your opportunity to be famous! Or at least “working class”.
On Friday August 19th, 2010 a Television Show Production of “Blue Bloods” will be shooting interior/exterior scenes at Leonard Street @ Nassau Avenue.*
APPROXIMATE TIME: 10am – 5pm
New York Shitty analysis: I suppose it is only fitting that an entity endeavoring to find “working class types” would elect to shoot in a working class neighborhood. Why buy the cow when you can get the
milk stereotypes for free?
Now if you don’t mind I am off to procure some Zywiec and polish my scimitar…
*Which, it should be noted, is along a bus route. Brilliant move, Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting!
