THE MOVIE PEOPLE ARE BACK
Film crews love Carroll Gardens. It's tree lined streets with turn of the century brownstones and quaint Mom and Pop shops make it a picture perfect setting for a movie. But, Carroll Gardens doesn't love film crews. They hog up precious parking spaces and they order residents to stop walking on the sidewalk each time they begin shooting. In an old Italian neighborhood where crusty old men chomp on cigars and curse like sailors, this has produced some very vivid and loud exchanges.
I'm guessing there will be more of the same this weekend, when crews move in to shoot a movie called, " I Hate Valentines Day." Sounds like some cheap horror film.
This time, they're not just filming for one day on one block. This time they're filming on two residential blocks for two days. I'll update you with stories and pictures next week.
