While your correspondent has been nursing a slowly but (I hope) surely mending fractured ankle, his ever alert wife, Martha Foley, has kept a keen eye on neighborhood developments. Over a period since November, Three Pierrepont Place and the sidewalk in front has on occasion been used as a setting for the TV drama City on a Hill, the story of which takes place in Boston. This has involved, among other things, spreading fake brick sidewalk over the concrete, and removing street signs saying “Montague Street,” “Montague Terrace,” and “Pierrepont Place,” then replacing them with Boston street signs.
This allowed us, back in November, to get a photo of Kevin Bacon from our window.
The photo at the top of the post, again from our window and by my wife, shows a sign that has stood for some time near the corner of Montague Street and Pierrepont Place and that gives information about the neighborhood to visitors, being loaded on a truck before the latest City on a Hill shoot. We trust it will be returned. Update: Brooklyn Heights Association Executive Director Lara Birnback assures us the sign will be replaced.
