DUMBO Wants Film Permit Ban: The Brooklyn Paper
Residents of DUMBO are shouting, "Cut!" to film crews who hog the streets of a neighborhood that is already besieged by street work and construction.
In the past two weeks, at least six film and television productions -- cop dramas, art flicks and even a Louis Vuitton commercial -- have lensed the screen using DUMBO's gritty industrial backdrop and sweeping city views.
But neighbors say that Hollywood couldn't have picked a worse time to spotlight their hot area, what with chunks of Water Street blocked off to accommodate construction, street reconstruction and water main work.
