Gearing Up: Cinematic Brooklyn

Prop Styling + Photos: BLOW UP!

It is not uncommon to be wandering around Manhattan and suddenly be reminded of an iconic movie scene that took place right where you’re standing. (“Oh look, that’s where Harry met Sally!”) But with a few notable exceptions, that doesn’t happen quite as often in Brooklyn—and we think that’s too bad. Using BAM’s special 150th anniversary screening series of local flicks as a starting point, we took some of our favorite Brooklyn movies and distilled the essence of their style, for your enjoyment and edification, on the following pages.
