In the Brooklyn neighborhood where I’ve lived for the last three years, every few day’s there’s a new notice for a film or TV shoot (“Girls”, “The Americans”, “The Black Box”, “Boardwalk Empire” “Person of Interest” “Orange is the New Black”, etc.).
It’s something Manhattanites have been familiar with for a long time but Brooklyn’s become an increasingly significant part of the action.
My partner and I made a documentary short for the New York Times on what it’s like to live in a quiet residential neighborhood which is also one of the most filmed places in the city. Check it out here.
