Movie Production Assistant Escapes the Lower East Side for Brooklyn Heights

Real estate blog Brick Underground reports this week about “Kathryn” a Seattle transplant who moved to the Big Apple to pursue a career in the movie business.  Initially landing here on the Lower East Side, she quickly found that her work schedule didn’t mesh too well with the 24/7 Snookification of the area. “At any given hour, I could walk less than a block to anything from a speakeasy to meeting “Jersey Shore” wannabe’s at a bridge-and-tunnel bar.”  She adds, “At 5 am, I wasn’t drunkenly balancing between my high heels and my friends. I was fighting those exact drunk people for a cab to get to movie sets.”

Quicker than you can say “non-starter” Kathryn found a share on Montague Street and happiness here in Brooklyn Heights (with the caveat that Crumbs doesn’t hold a candle to LES hot spot Sugar Sweet Sunshine).  She makes note of something WE should try sometime, “Brooklyn Heights is convenient, but my absolute favorite has to be that I can call Lucali’s Pizza and during the time it takes to pick up some wine and walk to Carroll Gardens, they’ll usually have a table ready and waiting for me.”

    Wow, the Blog must be getting pretty hard up for story content. Was there nothing more worthwhile to comment on from this weekend’s events?

    Seriously “Perplexed”? This is a neighborhood blog about a neighborhood.

    So let me get this straight, she is saying it is easier to catch a 5am taxi in BH than it is in the LES?

    A transplant working as a film PA just screams “mommy and daddy are paying for my apartment”. I have a hard time believing anybody finding even a share in BH on PA’s wages.
