City Councilmember Steve Levin wants to minimize the inconvenience occasioned by film shoots, many of which take place in Brooklyn Heights.
OTBKB: Councilmember Stephen Levin (33rd district which includes Park Slope, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Williamsburg and Greenpoint) is introducing a local law to the New York City Council today that would, if approved by the majority of the Council, suspend alternate side of the street parking around film shoots.
According to Levin’s press release, the bill, if enacted, would:
1. Suspend alternate side of the street parking for up to seven days on the site of a film shoot
2. Suspend alternate side of the street parking in the four blocks adjacent to a film site
3. Production companies will be required to post notice of the temporary suspension of parking rules on the effected streets. Production companies are currently required to post “No Parking” signs on the street they are filming on.
Levin “urges residents and production companies to contact his office with any questions or concerns regarding this bill.”
