Filming in Sunset Park!





While walking on 8th Avenue by 44th street. I stumbled on a group of French Film students shooting a scene for a short film entitled "Playground". When it will be out, I have no clue. One of the starring actors in it is a guy named William Otterson. They are in fine company. Sunset Park has been the scene of many a film shoot. Off the top of my head I can think of many episodes of "Hill Street Blues" that were shot here as well as most recently, "The Honeymooners", "Crocodile Dundee", "Sunset Park" that I can remember off the top of my head. I am sure some out there can come up with more films that have been shot in the nabe.

Verrazano Bridge is still Brooklyn cool!

While visiting John Paul Jones Park in Bay Ridge I stumbled on this scene that begged "shoot me, shoot me!" So I did. It was a typical winter contrast of the bridge, the post fall leaves on the ground and an overcast day. The Verrazano is still an awesome sight to behold. Ok so it's not in Sunset Park, sue me. We gotta give the neighbors to our south a break every now and then. Another good reason to always carry a small pocket camera.
