The movie ‘Winters Tale is currently being filmed in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The movie stars Russell Crowe, Colin Farrell, Will Smith and Jennifer Connelly.
But Red Hook was also one of the communities hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy.
Now the film crew is vying for space with the teams still doing a frantic cleanup to get people and businesses back on their feet
What to do? Both of these activities are vital to the personal, economic and physical rehabilitation of this area.
Well the cleanup guys are real life heroes who seldom get acknowledged. The film guys are supporting celluloid heroes who we also honour. I suggest to the film crew they sweeten the deal by honouring the real life heroes with some kind of bang up neighborhood shout out that lets everyone know they really appreciate what these guys are doing.
SHARE this with all your friends and LIKE the idea of running into Colin Farrell as you walk through the Red Hook area.
