Commercial Shoot at Promenade Montague Street Entrance Sunday Night

The Brooklyn Heights Association has alerted us to a planned shoot of a commercial for the U.S. Army to take place Sunday, May 31, beginning at 6:00 p.m. to Monday morning, June 1, at 1:00. The shoot will feature people watching fireworks from the Promenade (the fireworks will be added digitally), will be produced by Moxie Pictures, and will be directed by Henry Lu. Approximately 100 people will be involved, including actors, extras, and crew. This may result in significant noise, especially for those apartments facing Montague Street from Hicks to the Promenade entrance, Montague Terrace, and Pierrepont Place.

Moxie has provided a map (image) showing the no parking areas that will apply for the shoot. The blue lines (all of Montague Terrace and Pierrepont Place, and the south side of Montague Street from the Promenade entrance to Hicks Street) mark “no tow” areas because Moxie didn’t put up signs in time. Those marked with red lines (the north side of Montague from the Promenade entrance to Hicks Street and both sides of Montague from Hicks to halfway to Henry) are tow-away areas starting at 10:00 a.m. Sunday.

    Thanks for the heads up

    Lots of other upcoming closures, too. Parts of Pineapple, Joralemon, Clark, all within the next few days, I think.

    Don’t be fooled – this is part of Operation Jade Helm 15. The army is coming to take over Brooklyn Heights.

    “Rye” comments aside, several of the NGO types who wrote the policy proposals under which the pen- tagon decided it would “float” the idea of “domestic security exercises” live in the Heights. That was until congress and especially three western governors started asking questions very unwelcome attention and you saw how quickly it was all dialed back. Com-plete with the White House quickly assuring the public that military weapons would not be given to police. Hmmm- perhaps its just the tides or calendar date why the late night overflights have now all but ceased.

    As far as the movie creeps…well guess WHY They can’t bother such areas as little Italy or parts of the Village endlessly? Well because Residents there have discovered a wonderful new technology..police whistles…..

    Rick, thanks for the tip! Not so quiet this afternoon on Boerum and Schermerhorn. I think I need to learn more about this Operation Jade Helm 15.
