LAST GASP: Upcoming Film Shoots In North Greenpoint

July 31, 2011 ·
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic 

In my rush to round out the day’s posts I forgot to pass along these upcoming film shoots as approved by the august Mayor’s Office of Theatre Film and Broadcasting. Without further ado, here they are!

A film shoot will come to pass in our fair burgh August 2nd through August 4th. This will necessitate the removal of all cars on Greenpoint Avenue between Franklin Street and Leonard Street by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.

In addition, “Girls”* will be clearing Manhattan Avenue between Green Street and India Street starting at 10:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 3rd, for a film shoot the following day.

Am I the only person who finds this amount of overlapping “activity” in such a small geographic area a wee bit excessive?

*Which, as some of you might recall, is the same production company responsible for this.

From The New York Shitty Inbox: Of Film Shoots & Alternate Side Parking

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:
