    I once saw a 60’s film noire that featured a scene in the Clark st. station, at the St. George, where the main character ran down the stairs to the subway. (so it was pre-elevator, I guess) The rest of the film was largely set in Bay Ridge. It wasn’t a great film, but had a lot of Brooklyn locations. Anyone know the name?

    I’ll never forget the filming of ‘I am Legend’ with all the helicopters circling the Brooklyn Bridge! Kept me up all night. Will Smith, glad that movie was good as I was not a happy camper the night of shooting.
