Annoyed and Aggravated August 28, 2012 at 12:33 PM
As a resident of this block, I am annoyed that this constant disregard for the rest of the residents that live here have to endure these inconveniences of noise, no parking so they can park their trucks and vehicles, equipment blocking sidewalks and property fronts. They may benefit the store front owners where the shoots are being done but have little disregard for anyone else. This block is very popular for these film shoots and rather than get the approval of all the residents we do not get informed of this until the night prior. Many of us sleep during normal night time hours with young children while they feel the need to come in at all hours of the night to accomplish their needs.....Well What About the Residents that pay property taxes, rent and what ever else to live in the apartments that do not want this constant inconvenience and annoyance in their neighborhood time and time again!

WooHoo!!! I TOTALLY agree. I live right on Sackett and Henry. Well Said!!!

The film and television industry brings millions of dollars in tax revenue to the city and provides tens of thousands of jobs. It seems as though some people can't see a bigger picture than their own parking space. I'm sure people out of work in other parts of the country would love to have these problems.

Couldn't agree more. Yes, parking is a pain, but that comes with the territory of living here. If I'm inconvenienced here and there because of movie/tv shootings, that is fine by me.

I am sure all the homeless people walking the streets agree with all those tens of thousands of jobs that are just knocking on their door steps with open arms and perhaps your ignorance is not as inconvenienced by the lack of consideration of these film/television shoots and we're not just talking about the PARKING SPACES! Perhaps you are one who's pocket is being lined because my taxes have not seen revenue from the city !

If you mean by my "pocket is lined" that I work fifty to sometimes seventy hours a week at a very challenging and physically demanding job then in truth yes, I work in the industry. And as such, I see a fairly significant portion of my paycheck go to the city and the state every week. I can say with certainty that tax revenue is being collected from me at least. I am suggesting that we consider the broader picture. What is the greater benefit for the community? I will admit that many of the elements of a film shoot are disruptive and annoying. I can also assure you that many of the people involved in a production are aware of this and do what they can to limit the disruption. There are many annoyances in living life in New York. In the case of film production, you can always bring your concerns to someone on a location and they will address the issue. In addition, here is the link for the Mayor's Office of Film and Television. Here you can find job listings and contact information. If you would like your neighborhood to be excluded from consideration for filming you can file a complaint there. http://www.nyc.gov/html/film/html/index/index.shtml

I don't work in the industry, but I do believe there is economic value for the city, even though is doesn't solve the problem of homelessness (seriously, that's your argument?). There seems to be a lot of people in this neighborhood who love to complain about things that are common characteristics of NYC.
