Apparently too many film crews have been descending upon the Barclays Center-adjacent neighborhood of Prospect Heights. (It must be the attraction of that artisanal mayonnaise store.) The mayor’s office has put a three to six month halt on all movie and television shoots in the area after fielding multiple complaints from residents. We’re just too famous here in Brooklyn.
The suspension started on Monday, and has but one lone exception: The FX series The Americans that frequently films around Carlton Avenue. Because we love spies. (Actually probably something about a contract.) According to DNA Info, the moratorium was implemented after the local community board complained about “parking, noise, cars being towed, and lack of notification” about Allison Williams or the like blowing up your local watering hole.
The break in production will be reassessed sometime this summer, but for now, you can rest easy. The area from Dean Street to Sterling Place between Flatbush and Washington avenues will be blessedly film shoot free.
